Our 1st Turkey Day in PA

Here is my Thanksgiving table before we sat down to eat. I brought out the "fancy" plates LOL. They used to be my Grandmother's then I got them. My Mom suplemented the set I got with more pieces from the Betty Crocker catalog (too bad it's gone now, I had 100's if not 1000's of points left :( ). Oh see that cool gizmo in th emiddle of the table??? $5 at Walmart. When you have a really small table and a LOT of food, you need to think UP LOL. It was such a great way to have all the food on the table and still be able to have room to eat. Anyway, my brother Randy came over and we all had dinner together. It was my very first time cooking both turkey and hosting a Thanksgiving. Everything went off without a hitch.

Kendalyn LOVES Thanksgiving food, the turkey and especially stuffing. I make just a very basic stuffing, no oysters or raisins or nuts etc... and we all think it's just the best part of the meal. There is hardly ever any leftover.

Kendalyn is so happy to be able to spend time with her Uncle. Before we moved to PA, she had only seen him maybe 3 or 4 times in her life. We got to see him that many times in the first month we were here! It's really nice being close to MY family again ok so not all of them are here, but I'll take what I can get ;) )

Kendalyn's Christmas Tree

Kendalyn wanted a tree for her room, so we got her one. LOL It's really cute. At 4.5 feet tall, it's just a little taller than K. She chose the ornaments (with a little encouragement from Mom ;) ) and we put it up tonight. K is SO proud of her little tree, she says she hopes Santa will come downstairs to take a peek at it, because it's "SOOOOOO pretty!"She's such a hoot.

Since the colors match some SU colors pretty well (Tempting Turquoise, Pink Passion, Green Galore and Only Orange) I'm going to make a set of cards using those colors. I can't wait to play, I think they will be super cool X-Mas cards ;)

Hopefully now that I found this awesome picture editing program, I'll be able to upload cards and pictures easier. I know it's been around forEVER, but I just now had the need to discover it. Picasa is AWESOME. It's SO easy to use. Anyway, I hope to get my stamp back on SOON! LOL Now that I'm online again, I don't have anymore excuses.

The View from my Porch

I promised a few friends some pictures from my new house, ummm back in July when I moved in.. uhh better late then never??? LOL Well here they are. Hey, at least I took the pictures!

The first pic is the view from my porch the week I moved in, back in July.

The second pic is the same view this weekend.

I still don't know why I ever left PA! It's really pretty here. Anyway there are the promised pictures. Maybe I'll get a chance to upload some pictures from Halloween as well as some of the latest cards I've made. Yes, you read that right, I actually made some cards! I know, it's been forever, but I have done a few. I'll try to see what I can do. Gotta scoot!
Welcome to my new an improved blog. I hope you can find something useful, insightful, humorous or just plain silly here. Enjoy!
