Tea? I dropped by my neighbor's house two days in a row. Funny thing, I had my camera. Smile. Don't you love her teapot?
She bought tulips. Yellow! Love!
Isn't this plate the picture of sugar plums?
My pumpkin pie was just right. Sometimes I over dump ground cloves and ginger into my pumpkin, but this year . . . I measured. Delicious!
This fine organic turkey roasted up well, didn't it? The gravy was so tasty. Yummy, yummy, yummy. Now I'll wait a whole year to have turkey gravy again.
After all the feasting, we went to the park. Look at Millie Rose! She loves to swing!
Princess Dew Drop kicked the flat soccer ball around the yard.
Princess Snowflake ate a basket of berries (her face!) and then got mad at Princess Dewdrop who just might have been a little less than a team player while kicking the flat soccer ball.
And the garden friends have moved from the fairy garden to the picnic table. As soon as our new dishwasher comes next week, they'll have a swish-swish bath and find a place under the Christmas tree, I think. Yes, the dishwasher gave off a funny electric smell and promptly died. Oh well. Isn't a dishwasher one of the most boring appliances to buy? I think so. My hands are quite witchy looking from all the washing up. We thought about going without a dishwasher. We decided the hole in the kitchen or a dead dishwasher filling the hole just wouldn't do.
Tonight I am going to Toys R Us with Kelli. I'm quite disappointed with their baby doll selection (I went last week to buy a baby for Samantha Rose) and I'm hoping they have a few simple old fashioned toys. I'll take some pictures of the pretty side of a huge (and greedy looking) toy store. Stuff Mart.
Really, I just want to keep Kelli company. We completely missed the whole Black Friday thing. Thank the Lord.
I slept 12 hours last night, I'm a bit embarrassed to say. Feast making and turkey eating wore me out.
Sunday is A Pause in Advent and then . . . Wednesday is the first A Childlike Christmas posting! I can't wait to hop from blog to blog, reading my friends' wonderful words! Please check in with me on a regular basis, so you won't miss a minute of the fun!
Ratty, Toad, and Mole just might be sitting in a wet envelope by MK's North Carolina mailbox. She's away and they didn't come before she left. Oh well. They WANTED an adventure. MK will warm them up and entertain them. She's spirited!
Thank you for popping by! I hope your days are filled with tea and sugar plums.
Oh, this IS a holy season indeed!
