Stuffed Beyond Stuffed


God has blessed me on so many levels, I can't express how thankful I am for that. We enjoyed a wonderful thanksgiving with family today, ate way more than we should have and even though we were miles apart from many of our loved ones the day was filled with love and gratitude.
You certainly can't top the California weather this time of year either, it was absolutely beautiful with temps in the mid 70's and clear blue sky's, it was beyond perfect.
I hope you too had a blessed day with your families, had plenty of good food to eat and found much to be thankful for.
Now that the Christmas countdown has officially begun, I am really looking forward to having my mother come stay with us next month. We will be doing a lot of baking together and daily preparations for our family Christmas gathering. For the first time in years grandpa and I are opening our home to all of our family members (all 60+) to drop in and share some holiday cheer =) I am definitely excited and can't wait to get started with decorating this weekend.

What are your plans for the Christmas holiday?

Oooh nice, I'm so jealous about the weather. I'm in Ottawa Canada and it is getting colder by the day (although the past 2 days were exceptionally mild.) I am getting ready for the cold that is coming. Brrrrr.

For Christmas this year we are staying home, and we have family who might be coming in the area so I'm sure htere will be a meal here and there.
