Happy Thanksgiving!

I sure hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  We did!  We had to cook 10 # of potatoes and mash them.  Here in our mobile home, we don't have big pans.  We used a Dutch oven for one of our pans.  They turned out really good!  Our meal was wonderful!  It was especially fun having Rhonda and her family with us!

When we got home, we Skyped with Bryan and Aidan.  He said Happy Thanksgiving and wondered why we were in our kitchen.  That was fun!

Coffee this morning and then putting up Christmas lights and decorations outside!  We got partway done and then it was nap-thirty!

Tomorrow is a big day!  I hope everyone is thankful for their many blessings!

Fun times at the bowling alley. Our family all bowled together this morning...except for Dave.  He had a blood blister on his thumb that ripped open on his practice balls.  So he didn't bowl!  I had one good game and two so-so games!  In fact, I was high woman bowler today with a 172! Fun!!

Bingo was the same as the last three weeks - I didn't win! 

Now I'm watching DWTS, waiting to see who will win.  I figure it will be Jordan, but nothing will surprise me!

Today I took my walk at Sam's Club today!  We had to get muffins for Weds.  We also went to Einstein's to get the bagels for Weds.   This afternoon, Dave washed the roof while I worked on the newsletter.

Tonight we went with the family to Post Corner for pizza and then I played a game of Farkle with the family!  Fun times!

We skipped church this morning.  We wanted to go to the Sanding Ovations, but it was supposed to rain by around noon.  So we went to the beach around 10:00.  The sculptures were beautiful this year - maybe the best we've seen!  We got done there and went to Gators for lunch.  We got our lunch and the rain came.  We all went inside to finish our food!  We really need the rain, so what little we got was welcomed!

This afternoon, Rhonda, Steve, and Cheyenne flew in from Texas.  It's so good to see them!

It was another gorgeous day here.  We started our day with breakfast - the first of the season.  Then it was shuffleboard time.  I didn't do so well, but I started hitting better toward the end.  Hopefully I'll do better next time.

Good Cyclone victory this afternoon and then a visit with Bobbi & Alan.

We went to Moccasin Lake Park today, but we were very disappointed.  We saw no birds and only a squirrel for our critters.  Oh, sorry, we saw several turtles, but nothing else until we left the park.  In the ditch at the park entrance, we saw a pair of peahens and a peacock.  Very disappointed, but it was a beautiful day anyway.
