I haven't gotten much done in my crafting ... but I sure have enjoyed hubby being home and spending time with my family over the Thanksgiving Day weekend!!  Here's a few photos to share with you ...
The Franjko's in the kitchen  (where all the food is) LOL!

Morgan asked for a LITTLE bit of whipped cream on her pie!!
Never let Frank be in charge of the whipped cream!  LOL!

Morgan's FAVORITE socks

Mark & I took advantage of the beautiful weather we had here in Ohio over the weekend and got the outside of our home decorated for the Christmas holiday season.  It averaged around 60 degrees and it was so nice to be able to do this without coats & gloves.  I even cut my grass one last time and have now rearranged my equipment by putting the riding mower away and have the snow blower out and ready for when the WHITE STUFF shows up.  I am really proud to show you a couple photos of the outside of our home ... with the new landscaping & shutters ... the decorations look even better than before!!


Today it's been raining so it was a good day to start on the inside.  We got the tree up & decorated and I even got the mantle MOSTLY done.  I have a couple other pieces I'd like to add once I dig them out!  LOL!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope your Thanksgiving gathering was as blessed as ours!

Mark has to go back to work tomorrow & I'll be playing catch up in the crafting cave but I'm looking forward to going out to dinner tomorrow night.  We celebrate our ANNIVERSARY tomorrow and I pray we have many, many more together!  Mark is truly MY BEST FRIEND and I love him dearly!!
See you later!
