hugs and a few tears.

Even my little critter friends are feeling a bit neglected!



Hope your week is getting off to a great start.
The weather here is just incredible for this time of the year!
I am so celebrating these last remaining days of fall.

Until tomorrow, friends,

There is nothing so rewarding as Family getting together.
At our get together we had 31 people. 16 or 17 stayed in the same house. My 14 traveled a short distance to the Turkey feast.

Cheryl said...

Tis the season for busy-ness. I can relate to your feelings about the weather. It feels more like spring than fall. Some days I find myself looking for signs of little green buds.

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

lots & lots of eating, etc... LoL!
lots of fun, too! and the chipmunk, too cute!

70 degrees sounds sooo nice... but I really can't complain too much about the snow from yesterday, because it'll probably be gone by this afternoon, tomorrow at the latest & that's how I like my winter snows... love to watch it falling, but melt & go away sooooon! LoL! =)

Ivanhoe said...

The eating, drinking, dishwashing is a never-ending cycle, isn't it?! I use an occasional paper plate ... or two!

Amish Stories said...

Some people say that its nice when family drops over, but its even better when they leave. But i think its nice to see family while everyone is still among us. Richard

Hope that you, your stomach and your dishwasher can relax now...
Beautiful shots, as usual.

Ginny said...

So glad that you had a fun and busy time with everyone. So you all went to see Hugo? I have been reading the reviews and really want to see it. We LOVE angry Birds, and have quite a few other apps as well that are imitating it. We also have a big marble run, they are fun. I didn't know that Wyeth had his own museum!

Brian Miller said...

smiles....that is a cute little critter there at the end...glad you had a good thanksgiving...

bon bon said...
