My “cute” blessing…

The grocery shopping is done…well, except for the couple of things my daughter in law will pick up for me…

…..and today I will be preparing just a couple of things…

……….the rest will be left for tomorrow morning…

Prepping for the cranberry relish..



And in-between a little cooking…

…..I am doing some Christmas decorating…



And nothing could be finer than to see your grandchild in her Thanksgiving School Play…


She was the cutest little Pilgrim!

And here she is with her best friend…


As I scurry to bake and cook, and clean and decorate…I find myself sitting back…

…..and counting my many blessings.

………..and for what is most important…are the beautiful memories.


I send you the warmest wishes for a Blessed Thanksgiving to you and your family!!!

  9. Shirley, she is so cute. She sure does favor you. I am sure you hear that all the time. I have roasted a turkey breast so we can have sandwiches, baked two pumpkin breads and one banana cinnamon loaf is in the oven now. We will go out for Mexican tonight because I still have a pumpkin pie to fix and I am pooped. My gang should be here very soon.

    Have a great one!

That hat she’s wearing looks pretty authentic! Whoever made it did a really good job! Happy Thanksgiving, dear Shirley!!!! See you on the flip side!

  13. What an adorable little Pilgrim! I can imagine what a proud grandma you are! I spent the day cooking with my daughter, which I loved. It isn’t often that I get her all to myself. I hope you and your family have an awesome Thanksgiving, my friend!

  15. Shirley~ That’s the cutest pilgrim I have ever seen! We’re responsible for the turkey tomorrow~ we’re frying it! It’s a family tradition and it frees up the oven for mashed potatoes, stuffing, rolls, cranberry-apple and sweet potato casserole! Wishing you and your adorable pilgrim & family a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  16. You’re right, you have a cute little blessing! May you and your family have an awesome Thanksgiving full of blessings!
