Our family Thanksgiving week here in CA.
Me and my sweetie having breakfast at Panera with Grandpa before we headed off to pick up some items for thanksgiving dinner. This year we kept it on the healthy side and decided we did not need 3 kinds of potatoes and an assortment of deserts, to name a few.
Nobody needs to be miserable after a family meal!!
It was nice to keep things simple for a change.
This is our dining/ work bench room. We use three rooms in our home for our business. They all cleaned up the plate of veges and ranch dip, crackers and cheese. Just plain old stuff and they loved it.
Our princess and her brother.
They bought a little house in our town 3 years ago and after a seven months in Tennessee that year. We missed our grand kids and they miss us so much, upon returning they figured out how to get us to live very close. After a year of praying about our next chapter Mike and I feel fortunate to live in the same court, in other words right across the street half of our family. Our other kids live in Oregon on the coast we love so much. We miss them and wish it were close enough for regular trips. That was our plan and we still have that in our goals.
On Saturday while the world was shopping at every sale they could find we were taking a nature walk.

Mike and I also squeezed in a trip to a great art show in Sacramento on Friday. We are hoping to show there next year. We chatted with some wonderful artisans. After a nice lunch we came home to the kids hopping up and down outside waiting to come spend the night. You would think we had not seen them in months.
We took them to church on Sunday and I admit we spent about an hour at Macy's with my mom to do a small bit of shopping. That was it for the busiest shopping weekend of the year.
Thanks for stopping by. What did you do this past Thanksgiving weekend? I love to hear from you. Do tell??
