My kind of snowflakes!

Over the river and through the streets to Grandmothers house we go to savor turkey, dressing, and pumpkin oh please do not let it snow!

This year I am thankful for no snow on Thanksgiving. It's not that I mind the stuff, it is rather pretty at first. Its just that I would rather be playing and watching football than scooping snow.
I hope many of you are making the journey home to Concordia tomorrow. As you travel, please be careful and don't get into a big rush, we want you home safe. The weather is suppose to be great, which means a little pigskin action between the feasts! (anyone up for a game in the park?) Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Getting Ready for the Holiday!

If I close my eyes I can almost smell the pumpkin pie, green bean casserole, and turkey, fresh from the oven. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday! No presents, no fuss, just getting together with people you love, (well, maybe just like, well....that's another story), and sharing great food, great wine, a football game or two and lots of quality time. (which sometimes in my case involves a little shut eye and a good movie or two) Giggles and the noise of rustling paper drifts in from the dining room where the girls are pouring over the "Black Friday" inserts coming up with a game plan for the next morning. The question of who will attend which 5:00 am opening is the topic of conversation. Ah yes, Thanksgiving! The last chance to relax before the big "shopping season" begins. Are you getting ready for the holiday?

Fall Fun in Concordia!

Don't you just love this time of year? Crisp mornings, balmy afternoons, a barrage of oranges, reds, browns, and greens, it's enough to chase away the worst case of boredom.
Raking up the fallen leaves used to be one of my favorite childhood chores. We'd rake the leaves into huge piles and spend hours running and jumping into the pile only to have to rake them up again. Ah, the simple things in life!
