Wow, I realized how long it's been since I posted to the blog!  I am here, and busy.  I'll have some new projects to show soon, I promise ~ And by the way, how do you like the new look here on my blog?  

So you see there have been quilty things going on here, but this past week was all about family and friends.  There was about a week of preparation leading up to Thanksgiving, and then the big weekend.  It took us two Thanksgiving dinners to get to see everyone this year...and the best part ~ I didn't have to cook either one of them!  How cool is that :)

First we spent Thanksgiving Day at Grandma Betty's in Delaware, and then Heather and Luke deep fried a turkey here at my house on Friday.  I had never had the deep fried turkey and it was wonderful, it made the whole neighborhood smell so good!

The kids told us to take it easy and they did all of the cooking!  It was like it was my birthday :)  I just spent the days playing with the little ones and snapping pictures.

Here we are at Grandma Betty's dinner, and I got a picture of Elsie taking a picture of me taking a picture of her ~ it's non-stop action at our get-togethers, what can I say :) much action that I think every picture I snapped of the kiddos was blurry!  (I'm obviously used to photographing stationary items, and have to work on my "action shots").  I think they're budding rock stars, they really do get into their "music" :)

We're so blessed that we could get together and celebrate with family and even some new friends this year.  I'm thankful for each and every one of them, and also the friends that I've met here on the blog and through Spring Water Designs throughout 2011.  I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Enjoy the day!

That's my favorite part about Thanksgiving - eating without having to cook. The two little ones on the piano are adorable.

How terrific to have two Thanksgiving dinners...we did, also! (One of them I had to cook, though.) I love the new look of your blog.
