Carrot Cake
Pumpkin and Pecan pie

Poor Hubby taking a break...

Hubby's Mom and Dad

Sami having some fun...

My Son, Jim and Crystal...my loves.

Hubby smoked a Mean ham with a brown sugar glaze. We Also had a wonderful turkey, but it was eaten before I realised I hadn't taken a picture of it! You lucky things!Hahaa....

Crystal and Tim playing cards.

The......TREE....Geez!

My Sweetie, William helping Gamma seperate out the blasted branches.

My WORD......I'm POOPED! We had a house full yesterday, I had the Grankids...several days...cleaning, cooking.....oops...that wasn't Me...it was Hubby! I made the Apple Pie Ice Cream....and cleaned...and cleaned...Then, the Granbabies spent the night and we put up the Christmas tree...sort of. Got it started last night while watching every Christmas movie under the sun....You had to insert EACH and EVERY BRANCH into the stalk of the tree...GADS!!! Never have I seen a tree that you had to do this!! If it Hadn't been for Tim and Crystal coming back to the house to make dinner take-away plates and Fixing the tree...I Seriously would have thrown it out the back door!!!Hahaaa......My little Elves...Thank God for Kids! Hubby just slunked...(yes, that's a word)...he Slunked out to the playroom....Wise man.
You know that "bone weary" feeling? I think every part of me is numb...LOL...BUT! We had a great time, laughed a lot and were Very grateful for having all our loves with us...Here's hoping Your day was a happy and safe one....Night Everyone! I'm off to find the Sandman. I Know he's lurking around here Somewhere!

So good to be back and thanks for your comments. The last month has been very sad. We had to rush home to be with my sister-in-law who very bravely lost her battle with melanoma not long after we got there.

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
