With crunch time for Thanksgiving here in the US quickly
approaching, I thought we could stand a little lighthearted fun.
I found some images that might put a smile on your face,
I know they put one on mine : )
The perfect Thanksgiving. source
And here is Marie's version of a healthy Thanksgiving.
She was so proud of her Tofurkey! source
But I think she may have stolen the idea. source
Gotta love this kids smile - and he's being such a good "helper" too. source
I hope the guy in the apron shaved his armpits - just sayin'. source
This looks like a disaster waiting to happen, right? source
It seems like the room that I tweak the most is our family room.
It has taken me a long time to get it to a point that I'm pretty happy with.
So I put together a little tour and a little story to share with you.
I took these pictures a few weeks ago before the leaves started to change.
It was on a day that no one else was home and I had time to "play house".
You know, the kind of day where you can tidy up and fluff up a room

Do you like it?
Or did I ruin a perfectly good chippy old chair?
