So Good to Be Home

Home again after visiting my dear in-laws in Central Oregon. What a fun weekend. We left early Thurday morning and arrived to a warm and cozy fire and a lovely table set for Thanksgiving. So nice as temps. were in the low 20's when we got there. We enjoyed visiting with my hubbys folks and of course all the wonderful Thanksgiving food.

After dinner the boys set out to do a little exploring while the girls decided to go to the movies. We saw "Enchanted" which I thought was a very sweet film.

On Friday, my main squeeze and I decided to do a little shopping. Not the big box stores kind of shopping, but antique mall/thrift store kind of shopping. I didn't find much, just a few things which I will share in another post. It was a beautiful, cold but sunny day.

Saturday was a very special day as it was my daughter's 14th birthday. We celebrated with presents and cake and the grand finale, a hometown Christmas parade. Here are some of the pictures I took.

My lovely girl is having her "friend" birthday next weekend and I will be helping Joy out with her sale on Friday. She has kindly offered for me to sell some things at her sale so I need to get busy and figure out what I will make/take to sell. I am so unfocused these days it seems. Hard to get my crafting mojo going. Okay, I did make that advent calender recently, but that was for me. I have lots of good crafting ideas/supplies so that isn't the problem. Just need to sit down and do it.

Did I mention it is good to be home? I sure did miss you all and was able to spend some time this morning catching up with you. Hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving! I know I have a lot to be thankful for including all of you, my lovely blogging friends! Thanks also for all of your sweet comments on my last post. I had so much fun being part of Natasha's Virtual Vintage Prom. Thanks again Natasha!

It was funny to see your post commenting on how good it is to be home as I have just done the same having returned from a short break.

Like you I had a lovely time away but your own home, there's nothing like it

Best Wishes

What a fine looking family!

I don't know, but I suspect that Christmas parade was better than the one in our little, southern town. I'm sure we have some old trucks like that one. Wish someone would crank one or two up and put them in the parade. Wouldn't it be fun to go yard saling in a truck like that?

It's always good to get home, to your own bed, your own pillows, I know exactly what you mean. I love the llamas...once got spat upon by one, but she was to lovely to be angry with! Happy birthday to your daughter, and have a happy week for yourself!
