After much talk we have all decided to dig out the western plates and go cowboy for Thanksgiving. I found a table cover that has that old west boarding house feel in my stash (thank you, M-I-L). So we are almost all set. Red lanterns instead of candlelabra, leaving the leaves on the ceiling to make my life simple. Put up one Christmas tree tonight for my uncle who will be arriving the day after Tday. Will just put lights on for Tday, and decorate one while they are here. I am so excited to have him and Betsy here for a little while. I think the Nutcracker is on our 'to-do' list this weekend! Now if we can get mom to quit worrying if the turkey will thaw.
I washed the dog, cleaned the house, vacuumed, cleaned some windows, finished up the Rubber Carving Swap and got it in the mail, cleaned up the very embarrassing messy sewing room so my uncle won't think I am one of those crazy fabric hoarders :0 and finally found my winter clothes which I need to go put away right now. Started Thanksgiving table, put up a tree and harassed my son for a couple of hours about his homework. I think I deserve a little glass of the red. Here is a little peak at my first swap ever - rubber stamp swap from Moki.
