Welcome T-Gang , followers and anybody else that has just dropped in! Having missed the past two weeks I am going to do some really quick catching up, but promise NOT to load this post with tons of photos......all though I DO have them....*grin*
We did spend our Thanksgiving up on the desert, only a small group this year, only 4 RVs (three trailers and one motor home) but still a nice size group. We decided to do it pot-luck style this year with turkey, ham and no side dish left out....LOL! Everybody lined all their tables in two lines, one for the food.....................
and one to sit and eat at. Sorry about the glare from the light, it was 5 P.M. and already dark, so we needed the light to eat by. As you can see it was a bit chilly when the sun went down so we were all in jackets by diner time. After diner we all sat around the campfire and drank a little wine, beer, champagne and soft drinks for the kids..............and then it was time for pumpkin and pecan pie!
This past Saturday was Danica's birthday......the little blond in the polka dots. She is our #3 GD and just turned 6 year old. The brunette behind her is Megan, who most of you already know, and the mad photo bomber, in the sun glasses is Danica's daddy.....our son Tony.
The birthday party was at Santee Lakes, in the San Diego area. Megan wanted to go to the party, so Papa and I took her with us. Her sister Hannah (the other one that gets on this blog a lot too) wanted to go too, but she also had a sleepover birthday party to attend for one of her friends.
Here are Megan and Danica together.......both 6 years old, only 7 months.......to the day....apart, Megan being the older. She is very tall for her age, as you can see. LOL! It was supposed to be a chilly day, with threats of showers..........well, it turned out to be a beautiful day with temperatures in the high 70s (F) Luckily Megan's Mom packed her some shorts and flip flops..........grandma wasn't so smart and was uncomfortably hot all day... Danica was soon barefoot after this photo too.
It was a great party, and a real quick trip, driving 5 hours each way. We drove down the night before and returned home after the party.
I know there are drinks on the Thanksgiving tables( the only T-day rule), but I want to show off one of my new coffee mugs. There were only three to the set, so I bought all three I liked them so much. This one has the wolf and trees on it. The other two are both the same, but different.....LOL! What I mean is one has moose and the other has a bear. I LOVE the blue, slightly speckled color of them and the forest theme made me think of when we had our cabin years ago. They are a dark brown on the inside, which can make it difficult to see, when it is nearing full, if all I have is the light over the sink on in the morning. I really don't fill it that full of coffee because it will hold 2 cups or 16 oz. and I can't drink it fast enough before the last half get too cold to drink........but I still LOVE the mugs.
I did get the house decorated for Christmas, before we went to San Diego, and will share photos in a different T-day post. It has been frosty cold here in the mornings putting me in a baking mood, so maybe there will be treats to offer next week.
Have a drink and a story? Why not join me and link up with Elizabeth , our hostess......I promise there are some really good drink related posts to be had...........and even treats if your fast enough.
