LOL! At first I thought it was a fuzzy felted turkey, now I see it is a tree. I love it either way.

Thank you, Carole, for the Thanksgiving card. Displaying them for all to see. This just reminded me of how much my dad loved seeing all the cards from my farm girl sisters.

Thank you Carole and Denise for the wonderful Thanksgiving cards. I love the red truck filled with pumpkins and sunflowers, Denise.

Our lives change don't they Judith. But sometimes we get a surprise like I got today. My sister called...first time in a year and a half. It seems that Baylee invited them to Thanksgiving dinner. It was so good to hear her happy voice. So I will get to see her next Thursday. When I was bald headed, due to chemo, was the last time we shared Thanksgiving...that was 2009. She said both of her kids have made their own plans for holidays, and she remarried, so she and her husband have been having holiday dinners in restaurants. I think that is sad. But then she does not cook and I do.

It sure does change! We will be going to my son's for Thanksgiving so there will be 3 of us this year. Usually it is my oldest dd and her family and my son but he has to work .
Christmas we will have 13 here because both my daughters and their families will be here but it will be on the 2nd day after Christmas we will celebrate. My son will probably come down for Christmas eve and Christmas day but then he will have to leave as he will have to get home for work the next day.

Ed and I were just saying that eating Thanksgiving in a restaurant is sure a lot less work - both preparing and cleaning up.

Linda,
I will probably be cooking at J's place. Just won't make as much as we normally would have.

If you fix a turkey breast, baked sweet potatoes, stove top stuffing and green beans...that is not a lot of cooking or mess. You can doctor the stove top and it is pretty good.
We have early Thanksgiving in late Sept or early October. We started this when my daddy was dying of cancer, he asked mother to make a big dinner and get us together. Sadly he could not enjoy the food but he enjoyed having us there. He died on October 11, 1970. Our son was six, so I was 26.

Marilyn,
He called last night and we talked about what to do so I am taking a turkey breast and sweet potatoes and stuffing. Will only make stuffed celery for extras. We usually do olives, pickles and celery stuffed with cream cheese. But those few things will be plenty and I am going to take a pie. We will stay over Wednesday to Thursday or Friday. I haven't seen him since the beginning of September. Will enjoy getting a chance to catch up with him.

Judith,
Glad you get a chance to spend time with your son!

Denise, I am excited for you! I know you must really miss your son.
Judith I'm happy to hear that your son invited you to come to their house for Thanksgiving.
When mother was alive we gathered with her at her house every Thanksgiving as well as Christmas, until she remarried. She was only 54 when our daddy died from cancer. She was 68 when she remarried.
So we and our kids had some good family times together.

Marilyn -- Easter, Dad's birthday, Thanksgiving, and Christmas were always at Mom and Dad's with my sisters families and my three and their families. Always great noisy joyous occasions. Dad died last year, one month short of his 104th birthday. My sisters wanted the house sold and I couldn't quite afford to buy their shares. I am just going to have to accept that holidays will be different now and we will not be all together again.

She had her first stroke in 1975 and Dad took care of her until her passing in 1995. He chose to live in the house they bought in 1954 with my brother. My brother passed in 2004 and Dad lived alone after that.

Your dad was amazing to live that long. My uncle lived 103 years. He lived in the Indio/Palm Desert area after he and my aunt retired. They bought the five acres when I was a little kid. I saw it when I was 13. Just a square of sand with one faucet in the middle of each side.
