Okay, this looks festive enough for the remainder of the holidays. It's a little brighter than I might prefer, but it definitely will work for Christmas. I think I'll keep this scheme through the new year. I'll find something more permanent after January 1.
Thanksgiving at our house was a very good day. Three of the grand crew spent Wednesday night here. They helped Nana in the kitchen and set the table for today's festivities. I built the first fire of the season in the fireplace, so we roasted hot dogs and marshmallows. You guessed it, Nana had graham crackers and Hersey bars on hand, so "Smores" were the dessert of the evening.
Our daughter,her husband, and the oldest of the grand crew arrived a little after 11:00 this morning. We ate around 1:00. After dessert (pumpkin or lemon meringue pie) and a little football, we loaded up the cars and headed to the movies. "Tangled" was the movie of choice. It was good, but I wouldn't pay extra to see it in 3-D again. After the movie, we headed our separate ways. Our daughter is traveling two hours to Branson with some of her friends to shop at the outlet malls. They open at midnight. I'll be in bed.
Friday is supposed to be cold here, so there will be NO black Friday shopping for Nana and I. We'll sleep in a little, I'll build another fire, and we will just stay home and stay warm. See you next week.
