One More Before Thanksgiving

I just thought I would sneak in another post before I get busy with Thanksgiving stuff! 

My tree is completely decorated. Maxwell and Levi helped a little but they were only interested for a short time. 

They hung all the ornaments on the bottom 3 feet of the tree, with a little direction from Nonnie.  Otherwise, all the ornaments would have been hung on one branch!

I think the sun reflecting on the wall from this glass candle holder looks pretty. Kind of like Christmas tree lights! 

I bought myself an early Christmas present. I was going to wait and let Rich get it for me but my coffee brewer was biting the dust fast and also, K0hl's had it on sale for a fantastic price! I like having the option of brewing a pot or a single cup. I like a pot in the morning and sometimes I like a cup of decaf in the evening after dinner. 

I got this little reusable filter too because those pods are expensive! 

One of the customers at the CBD store gave me this waxed Amaryllis on Thursday. I have never had one before. Apparently, it blooms in 3-4 weeks, the blooms last 2-3 weeks and then it's done. I don't have a picture but between then and today it's definitely bigger! 

Lastly, this was Maxwell's school craft project from yesterday when the teacher asked him what he was thankful for. My heart......

We are having 9 people for Thanksgiving this year. I love a small gathering so it should be a lot of fun. 

Until the next time have a safe and blessed Thanksgiving. my friends.


  1. Wishing you a beautiful and Happy Thanksgiving. smiles

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you too, Jeanette!! I am thankful for YOU!

    Your tree is absolutely gorgeous and the kids did a great job. That used to be one of my very favorite things about our tree, when the grandgirls were little.... how most of the ornaments would be clustered near the bottom. I used to leave it like that too, the whole holiday season. Every time I'd walk by the tree, I'd chuckle to myself! *lol* Now they're older... and taller... and that doesn't happen anymore, sad to say.

    I love how that candle holder glistens in the sun. It sure does look like Christmas tree lights! Beautiful! And little Maxwell's school craft.... awwwwww!!!!!! The best of life in that little craft!!!!

    Much love to you & yours~ Andrea xoxo

  3. Your tree looks really pretty.
    If I were to get a Keurig I would need one that also brews a whole pot. I would also need one of those reusable filters because like you said, those pods are expensive.

  4. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

  5. Everything looks pretty. I need to get through turkey day first! Nothing like grandkids who love you is there??

  6. Aww - I love Maxwell's thankful note.
    It's so cute to have little kids decorate.
    My Dad has an amaryllis every year. They do grow fast!

  7. Your tree is so pretty. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! I hope you have a lovely day.

  8. My amaryllis are outdoor plants. They stay in the ground...blooming in late Spring-early Summer. Love your tree...I shared mine on my blog today as it's tradition I decorate it while watching Dallas Cowboys' game.

    L❤️VE his craft...that's a keeper.

  9. My late mother-in-law used to get an amaryllis every winter. Fascinating plant! Your snow people are so cute. I would like to have one snowfall but that's it. I really don't like cold weather! Your tree turned out beautifully. xoxo
