On to Christmas!
I hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving. We were with Son-2 and family in Conway, Arkansas.
My favorite part of spending this holiday with them is seeing all the family mementos that have made the holidays special for years.
Not only was the food delicious, but the table was spread with DIL's grandmother's china
and Son-2's grandmother's crystal.
And Priscilla and John took their honored position by the turkey.

A friend of my mother made these figurines in the 60s.
On Friday Son-2 always breaks out the Christmas decorations.

The felt tree skirt was made by my mother in 1970, Son-2's birth year.

... and my first fusible applique project from about 15 years ago.
Now it's time to decorate in The Glade!
