It's beginning To Look Like ..........





Oh....ho ho ho.... As I await the arrival of more family for a second round of Thanksgiving holiday I peer out and it has started to snow within the last 10 minutes. I took a couple snaps to share with you and it has came down quite a bit more... The flakes are gently making there way to the ground... It is very pretty... I especially love it when it is fresh and glissens like diamonds... It is just magicial.... Tom's son and his family should be arriving soon to spend a few hours before heading back home to Indianapolis.... I was up at 6:00 baking peanut butter cookies... I am all in with the Thanksgiving feast so they are being offered a big ole kettle home-made chili .... scoops and salsa.... Grilled coby-jack cheese sandwiches on buttermilk bread or rye... fresh fruit..... and Paula Deens pecan pie.... The one pic of the pine cones I snapped when out front on the porch are a hugh bowl of pine cones I brought home with me from Myrtle Beach a couple weeks ago.... These cones are larger than the ones that are falling in our back yard and are minus the sap that is on ours... The cones with the sap are beautiful when dried but creates very stuck together fingers before that process..The other photo shows Tom's daughters house view as they live across the country road from us... I am sure they will come visit us today also and see family... More children will be having glee. I am sure I will be ready for a Christmas Hallmark movie this evening.... I do so love the Christmas movies... Makes your heart all warm and mushy.... Have a great day all......

Mmmm, chili and pecan pie sounds delicious to me too!! A few days of leftover turkey is all I can handle too, the rest goes in little containers in the freezer for future casseroles!
Hope you are having a lovely day!

OH my...chili sounds sooooo good today. I may have to make a trip uptown and get some ground beef. I love pecan pie too, but I have never made it.

Your place is so pretty and seems so very homey! Have a blessed day!
