Thanksgiving weekend....

We are thankful for good music....

Thanksgiving was a delight this year. We felt as though, even though we are facing some trials, we had the deepest and richest day we've had in a long time. A beautiful family joined us and there was good food, wonderful fellowship and the BEST part of all was that we enjoyed our very own orchestra concert. One piece brought tears to my eyes...amazing that music can do that isn't it. These young adults play beautifully. We were impressed by the way these young adults carry themselves and hold their own in conversations.

This family loves the Lord and has such a joy that radiates and if you are around them...well you can't help but capture some of the joy that they have - we were truly blessed to have them here.

We enjoyed roast chicken and duck, rolls, squashes, green bean dish, bon-bons, scalloped potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauces, spicy olives..mmmmm, squash bread - I'm sure I've left something out...oh, yes pumpkin pie and and coffee...we were all quite full!

The next day was our annual tree hunting day...starting with coffee at Starbucks then off to the tree farm to find the "perfect" tree...

I'll post more about our Christmas traditions later - but for now enjoy this lovely picture of our husband is the tree "picker". We all "hunt" but he has the last say...he thought this tree was darling with the added bonus of pine cones covered in sap, which make them look like they are covered in snow!

Thanks for stopping by...And may I be the first to wish you a very Merry Christmas...
