Tales of Wildfires, Turkey Day, Christmas, this and that......

It has been some time since my last post.....where does the time go? This is such a busy time for everyone. The hustle and bustle of holiday preparation is in the air!

Do you all have your Thanksgiving plans made? Ours will be a non-traditional day since our "children", (they are 25 and 21, dare I call them children?!) will not be at home, DH and I are traveling to Visalia, CA to enjoy some time with extended family. Hope you all enjoy the feast, the memories old and new, family, friends and the blessings in your lives!We are feeling especially thankful this year. If you have watched the news in the last week, you may have heard about the wildfires here in So CA. The Anaheim Hills fire came very close to our home......scary and extremely unsettling as we were under a mandatory evacuation. Much prayer and the hard work of the capable firefighters kept the flames away. We are most fortunate as many did lose their homes and all that they held. Please add those folks to your prayers.....such a tragedy to deal with at any moment but at holiday time it seems even more devastating. We are humbly
thankful that we were spared the heartache!
Have you begun your Christmas shopping yet? Oh my, hitting the malls is not my favorite part of Christmas so I have done much internet shopping. The boutiques at Make Mine Pink are full of wonderful gifts, holiday decor and other wonderful items and you can shop from home instead of battling the mall crowds.....and no gas will be consumed!! One of the MMP members even has a wonderful Christmas blog....visit, it is sure to bring the holiday spirit to your heart! Here's the link to visit Becca at ...of Bluebirds & Roses & Christmas. Enjoy!!

Happy Thanksgiving Georgia ! Hope you have a great trip and time with family.
Was thinking about you while those fires were raging...we went through a similar thing not that long ago. Very happy your home was spared.

Hi Georgia, Happy Belated Thanksgiving. I am so happy that you were kept safe from the awful fires in CA. I am just visiting some pink friends tonight and wanted to stop by and say hi. ~ Lynn

Thank God you and your home are safe. So scary!

I've done all my shopping online for the past several years and I love it. It's like Santa coming to the door every day for weeks before Christmas. My UPS man even wears a Santa hat!
