Turkey Dinner Birthday Party for Devin

Devi's birthday was last week. I can't believe all my kids are grown up. What happened to the time. It seems like just yesterday I was walking them all down the street to the park to play, or we were all running around one of the Los Angeles museums looking at cool stuff.
His little nieces.....They adore him!  
So since some of my kids were going to the inlaws' houses for Thanksgiving this year I decided to do mine early. We did a party  and had turkey and all the sides.
My favorite Thanksgiving dish...Fresh Cranberry Salad...yummy! 

Some of my favorites are here. Fresh cranberry salad and cornbread stuffing. It's the very best.  My recipes are HERE at Weekday Chef, my other blog. Can you believe I forgot to take a shot of the beautiful turkey? Yeah. I did. Figures.

Happy 26th to Devin Sean Moss!  
My grand kids got into blowing out the candles. Aren't they just sweet? It was a fun time. We played a fun board games. It was a present  called LOGO.

It's where you try to remember all these products and their jingles and advertising from the past. It was pretty fun. I recommend it.
She loved my little pine cone turkeys. Link HERE for the tutorial. 
Happy Thanksgiving Everybody!

Thanksgiving Decorating


This week I decorated my house up for Thanksgiving.....
Thanksgiving Decorations on the front room table

Front room end tables looked cute....

One of my favorite songs the kids sing at church at Thanksgiving time.....It makes me think of all the beauties of nature that I so love....
Whenever I hear the song of a bird
Or look at the blue, blue sky,
Whenever I feel the rain on my face
Or the wind as it rushes by,
Whenever I touch a velvet rose
Or walk by a lilac tree,
I'm glad that I live in this beautiful world
Heavenly Father created for me.
He gave me my eyes that I might see
The color of butterfly wings.
He gave me my ears that I might hear 
The magical sound of things.
He gave me my life, my mind, my heart: 
I thank him reverently
For all his creations, of which I'm a part.
Yes, I know Heavenly Father loves me.





Here's my front entry table. It turned out so cute this year! I got the neat wooden sign from Tai Pan Trading with a coupon!  Those brown, irredescent acorns are from Tai Pan too. So pretty!
