Just A Glimpse

Hi All!!
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
We had a really fun time, but I was so busy cooking, and getting things ready, I didn't have much time for picture taking. I'm sure there will be more photos on my daughter's blog sometime soon.
Anyway, here is a peek at my table, and I can't even take credit for the centerpiece.
My sweet husband came on on Tuesday with this lovely centerpiece he had made for me in Santa Monica. I added the flag.
I used burlap over my tablecloth this year, and I loved the rustic look. I think I am going to reuse it for a tree skirt around my Christmas tree.
The pretty Thanksgiving card was made by my friend Jean in Rhode Island. She always does such a great job on her cards!! Thanks Jean!
We all ate way too much, but we had a great time with my family, and my brother's family. They stayed with us, and it gave me a chance to pretend I owned a bed and breakfast. Everyone needs some pampering now and again.
I just got back from a tiny little decorating shopping trip. I will start my Christmas decorations tomorrow.
By the way, baby Jake survived his first Thanksgiving. He had a lot of attention from his older cousins and Great Aunt and Great Uncle. We now call them Gruncle and Grant. Thanks to my mom for helping me with the stuffing and gravy. Thanks to my daughter and son in law for the pies. My daughter also made the cutest turkey cupcakes.
Have a great Saturday night, and a nice Sunday.
Chat again soon.

I cannot believe your daughter felt perky enough to be cooking!!! I think having a baby just about did me in for 3 years...

Hey beautiful! Your table is divine and has Rosemary written all over it. It was a magical feast for the two of us with a Latino style/herbed turkey. I made a crème brûlée pumpkin pie and all was well with our souls (or at least our stomachs!)Do ya love the combination of French and Spanish food?

I can't wait to see what the heck you are going to do for Christmas. Ciao bella, Anita
