I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving.
Sad to say, Fall kinda slipped by me without much fanfare. I put out a few bits of fallish decor and some Thanksgiving hand towels in the guest bedrooms (in the rare event we had some guests).
SIL did drop in for an overnight to coordinate plans for a winter adventure (more on that later),
but that's about the extent of it.
We had Thanksgiving in Nashville with Son and DIL, as well as GS-1 and his new bride.
We were enjoying the company so much that the only photo I got was these dinosaurs
GDIL is knitting for her nephews.
Remember, she is the one who knit avatar favors for ALL guests at their wedding in September.

I made myself (actually, my schedule forced me to) wait until the day after Thanksgiving to even think about Christmas. Friday the tree came out ...
|Tree before ornaments|
... and on Saturday the basic ornaments went on along with many extra special ones.
Our first Christmas ...
... grapes from my first Christmas tree ...
|These grapes are almost 75 years old|
... remembrance of past cruises ...
... and the requisite mouse ...
(I haven't found the spider yet ...)
The collection of Nativity pieces is in place ...
... and Peggy Fleming on the mantle.

I hope to wrap up the decorating today as next week is crammed and
I have several deadlines looming in the sewing room.
I'll leave you with a view of the morning sky after 12 hours of pouring rain.

Welcome to December, Y'all!
