merry thanksgiving

 Goodness Gracious..........December is already HERE! Welcome, December!


We had a lovely Thanksgiving and hope y'all did too!!




My little Thanksgiving Pilgrims I get out every year




there was mashed "taters", dressing, gravy, rolls, and of course, turkey and pecan pie with whipped cream.


Turkey served up every Thanksgiving on Mr. Front porch's Grandma's platter.




 Did any of y'all drink "red pop" on hot summer days when you were kids? It was a treat I didn't get too often, but I loved it. I was remembering it last month and wondering if they even still made it?! So I went searching. Nobody had it. I looked all over!
A little country store in the middle of nowhere HAD IT! And it tasted just like I remembered.

Yay for lil country stores! Who also have this:
Big buckets of Greens! and green "maters" ready to FRY THEM UP! yum!
AND MOON PIES TOO! lol

The annual Macy's Thanksgiving parade was enjoyed:

It might've been chilly in New York, but it was a real nice sunny day here, nice and warm. We spent most of it outside.






My favorites are the marching bands. This year they were from California, Florida, South Dakota, Missouri, Texas, and other states.









Our geraniums are still in 
 full  bloom:


............and now, on to Christmas!
Poinsettias and Christmas cactus are now displayed on the store shelves:




and we've been out clipping greens to decorate our fireplace mantels.
Charleston has decked her halls as well. We were there yesterday and enjoyed the sights.

the big tree in Marion Square

bright trees and festive doorways

love how they decorate this doorway every year!


Hope everyone's December has started out real nice.

Tonight's Cold Moon.....the last full moon of 2022.
 it was SO BRIGHT and pretty. Hope you had a chance to see it.

Thanksgiving is here!

 

my golden leaf necklace my Mother gave me long  long ago. Every year around the first week of September, one of us would call the other and say "it's almost Fall, is it time to get our Fall leaf necklaces out and wear them yet?"


I got these books about the Pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving for Fairy Granddaughter. Hope that she likes them and likes learning about history. Two of the books had such big colorful picture pages, I'm sharing them here, maybe you will like them too.



















see how beautiful and colorful the illustrations are?




























Tansy showing off her Fall dress:
Tracie loves her sunflower dress! Here she is ready to serve up the sweet tea for Thanksgiving!
and here's Amybelle in her Fall outfit:




I have a big stack of magazines I hope to get to this weekend:



Our church had the annual Thanksgiving supper this week. Sure enjoyed it as you can see from my heaping plate here! ha ha LOL. There were loooong tables of food, and loooong tables of just desserts too.



Our Fall has been very nice and hope yours was as well. Truly we are so so thankful for all our many blessings from God. Happy happy Thanksgiving and enjoy the Holiday weekend!
Eat, drink, and be merry, and don't forget the annual big Macy's parade!
