Katrina keep reminding me that you've been begging for Thanksgiving pictures.... This is just a quick post, but we had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Pictures not being the priority.
I had all these plans to get pictures at the tables that we so carefully arranged to make 21 of us fit into 2 rooms. (non of my rooms is large enough to set just one table for that many!
We thoroughly enjoyed having our new Pastor's family of 8 here as well as my Dad and step-mom. These pictures are mostly from when Pastor Neipp's birthday celebration reminded me that I'd forgotten the camera, so here's a taste of our lovely time without the food (buffet style) or lovely table settings that the children made.
I didn't alter any of these or they may not have gotten up:
|Oh! there is the buffet table in the Kitchen in the next room... some proof of food!|
|All the kids love to hold the baby of course! (I just love that)|
|Our sweet Pastor's wife (she's like a sister to me) and I|
Please note... selfies are rather hard on the wrists using an SLR with a giant zoom lens
|blue candles for each decade and red ones for each additional year|
|My sweet husband|
On the picture below, on the left you can see one of Katrina's most recent projects... re-purposing toilet paper tubes but in 1/4" rings. She made some snowflakes... I'll have to do another post with all the creations so far, but I requested accorns for my fall decorations and she made me two. They each took her about 2 hours. Hot glue to fit them together, paint and then pva glue and glitter. you can't see in this picture, but she has orange glitter on the bottom and brown for the cap. I love them. She is currently working on a wreath that has a sort of spiral look.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all from the Creon Home.
