Around The Homestead...

 I have been very busy trying to keep up with work things,
and of course I took time off for Thanksgiving.

Youngest son Michael was home for a week for Thanksgiving, 
- that was so fun -
We had Thanksgiving dinner at my niece Deanna and Anthony's house.
They are parents to Addie & Lorelei, 
having those children in the house makes any holiday better.
Our turkey was fried outside, it looks pretty good, right?

I always love when Mike comes home,
he plays games with the hubs and I, I love to play games.
We played Scattergories...

When Mike was young we always let him win, 
he knows that and expects us to behave the same way now.
- we don't -
I also love when Mike is home during the holidays because he has a wonderful holiday spirit.

And he helped us decorate the house for Christmas

I'll show more of the house in another post.

I think this is a great Christmas To-Do-List for all of us.
- may we all be the light -


  1. Hello,
    The turkey does look delicious! I am glad your son was home for Thanksgiving and you had a happy time with your family. Pretty decorations. I like the Christmas to-do list! Take care, enjoy your day and week ahead.

  2. Yay for family at Thanksgiving! Great list too.

  8. Your turkey looks delicious! DH smoked a small turkey breast this year and we had turkey and stuffing sandwiches... which was perfect as I wasn't up to doing the whole Thanksgiving dinner this year. And we unexpectedly got to see all the kids! Glad you had your son home for the holiday. Our tree is up, but I'm slow decorating it.

  9. So glad you had a great Thanksgiving and time with your son!

  10. Your turkey looks very tasty.

    All the best Jan
