with friends in from out of town-
a friends birthday-
and a nephew's birthday and a niece's baptism (no pics of those though).
I also spent time turning this-
I put up 2 trees this year. The 1st being a traditional tree with ornaments from J's and my childhood.
Close up of my favorite ornament, an oversized diamond ring. A hand-me-down from my mom.
And turning this-Into this-
Our 2nd more formal silver tree.
More close ups of our mantel (I'm still working on it) and our exterior lights soon.
Hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving. We all have a lot to be thankful for. Here's a favorite quote of giving thanks:
For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
