So we turned the calendar to December, but my heart is still in November. Specifically Thanksgiving. We had such a nice trip!! Ahhhh….always fun to visit family.
The long drive was hard on this one…
I had very big plans of sketching on the long trip. Even made a huge travel art supply bag, but Lilly ended up on my lap for about 6 hours instead. Sigh… it was really hard to sketch in the car anyway. What was I thinking?
Thanksgiving was wonderful. Great food. Great people. Great weather. Lots of laughs, games, and just an overall super day. Still feeling blessed.
My Mom’s dining room table was beautiful. As always. I didn’t bring my big camera, but snapped some pix with my phone.
Close ups of her beautiful centerpiece. We all drooled over it. Those pumpkins! Ahhhh…
Her velvet pumpkin collection is impressive. Here are more…
They are tucked into lots of Fall vignettes. She got these Dr. Seuessish (is that a word?) green dangling twigs when she was here last Summer. Love how they fall off the mantle.
The kids played lots of games.
I won’t reveal who won at Poker. Or who lost…yikes. It was epic!
Poor Lil, the drive was bad enough, but she was a scaredy dog the whole trip.
This guy made it abundantly clear he did not want to be friends! Morris, you are a good kitty. We still love you.
Day two, the guys watched football and then went to a Thunder Basketball game. The girls went…you guessed it…
Ahhhh! We went to some of the neatest boutiques downtown. Plenty Merchantile, so wonderful. It’s in Automobile Alley, an area we had never been to. Awesome!! Very close by was Verdigris.
Lots of great antiques and finds there. So clean…I really liked that. We also went to Farmhouse Fancy in Yukon. Loved that sweet store! I’ll have to show you the things I got there. We also went to Anthropologie because of the great sale. Next door was West Elm. Fun store too.
Another fav was Blue 7.
We made 2 crafts this year. If you remember last year, we did arm knitting. Ohmywordthatwashilarious. I will show what we did tomorrow! See ya then!
