Welcome Christmas!

We had a great Thanksgiving!
I decided since I wasn't feeling 100% we would have an Italian feast. I made two white lasagnas {which my boys love!} and my sweet sis in law Lindsay made a wonderful salad and pasta with meatballs. I also made a big batch of my lentil soup which is always so hearty and good. We had desserts galore and lots of spirited, fun conversation which is what I love most! It was my aunt Mary's 84th birthday so we celebrated her too. She is still so young and such a kind hearted person. We were so busy having fun, I forgot to take many pictures....

We also attended a beautiful wedding on Saturday for one of my book club friends daughter. It was such a memorable and sweet wedding and Steve and I felt so honored to be a part of their day!
The book babes! Oh how I love these ladies!
And now we are so excited about Christmas!! 

We even needed a new little stocking! Next year  he will have his very only monogrammed one like ours! Wonder what name will be on it?
Wishing you a beautiful, peaceful Christmas season ! 
It really is the most wonderful time of the year~

Hi Karen - thanks for your visit. I've been doing some reading on here - you've been busy! Glad you're recovering from your surgery well, and congrats on becoming a Grandmother! The video was priceless! I'm very jealous you see... Happy Holiday season! Would love to have been at your house for all that lovely Italian Thanksgiving fare!

So the Greeks did Italian for Thanksgiving...I love that! I think that's what they call "thinking outside the box". I'm so sad that you're not up to par yet. I seem to remember that your surgery was on Jim's birthday which is October 17th, so that would make it about 6 weeks ago. I've always heard it takes AT LEAST 6 weeks to begin to feel good again after a major surgery like now's the time for you to feel better and I hope it begins TODAY! Your tree looks beautiful and I'm so jealous that yours is up and decorated and ours is still in the garage...maybe tomorrow?? Our little baby boy is due in about 6 weeks and yours will be coming right after that, I can't wait to see the pictures. You will be the very best grandma (ya ya) EVER!

I second all that Cougarnana said. And I will add that I still want to come and visit and sleep in your living room. I think it is the cutest and most inviting room. Especially with your beautiful tree.
