Tis The Season!!!!

I hope you all have a wonderful and Safe Thanksgiving tomorrow! I hope everyone eats until they cant poke in another bite, and takes time to enjoy their company or host! I am recipient of an extra special blessing this year, my parents arrived unannounced, and VERY unexpectedly last week to spend Thanksgiving with us! They drove just about 1700 miles to get here~ I nearly had a heart attack when I saw them! The last Thanksgiving we spent together was 1988, before I enlisted in the US Navy. I'M LOVING every second of every minute...and all the children are in Heaven too! I have a little tree up in the Gallery, and let Ma put on all the special ornaments yesterday~ it was wonderful seeing her face when she opened ornament after ornament that she had totally forgotten. Little things she had made, ones I had made~ i still have my little stocking teacher gave me from preschool(yes, I qualify as pack rat extraordinaire). I love how the tree puts off a warm glow~ here's Ma holding Pippin~ who is just amazed at all the little treasures!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS from Diamond K Folk Art!
