Happy Thanksgiving

Priscilla made beautiful dresses for her and Elizabeth. I feel so blessed to have such a sweet daughter in law !

Our family has enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving together. Priscilla and Melanie helped with the meal, each making a dish to bring and then helping get things ready. The men folk chatted while we worked. The babies were both little sweeties the entire day.
Right now its so cold here, especially compared to our warm temperatures earlier in the week. Snow and sleet is falling, and the mercury is dropping by the hour. It feels so nice to be inside where its toasty warm. The fire is glowing brightly with plenty of wood for the night stacked up beside the stove. Since I love snow so much, it just feels like a perfect day when combined with
all the fun of the holiday
I had a few things on the line to dry this morning, when I brought them in a bit ago they were covered in sleet. The last of the tomatoes have been picked, green but fine for green tomato relish or fried green tomatoes.

Its just been a perfect day, family, food, warmth and lots of love.
