For 15 years our family has been celebrating Cranberry Thanksgiving - it begun from our homeschooling days with Five in a Row. We have the turkey with all the trimmings and Christmas carols are played (reluctantly might I add by the teenagers), while the Christmas tree is decorated. We each share what we have been greatful for over the year. Our family has soo much to be thankful for! This year top of the list has to be the wonderful surgeon for Abbey, our family, our friends, the privileged to of homeschooled, our land, pets, oh we are soo blessed our life is filled with lots of love, joy and many many things to be greatful for.
We give thanks to our blogging readers and friends and to all the wonderful MandaBurms owners of our kittens we bred. It has been a wonderful year seeing all of the cats come back to stay. Thank you!
This will be the last photo you will see of Molly - Saturday Molly is heading home and I am sure will be thankful to sleep in her own bed. We have loved having Molly stay!
Just ordered your steel
Can you imagine the joy I got getting this email from Brent?
This weekend brings the start of the cattery make over. I'm soooo excited!
Happiness is like a kiss.
You must share it to enjoy it.
The poppies are nearly all blooming
You can see the cattery in the background
my poppy hedge - SWOON!
It is looking very promising that we will have cherries for Christmas day
Stella adores sitting on Abbey's lap. I don't think I've ever seen such a funny sight of a dog on a lap while one is knitting. (James conned Abbey to knit him a beanie hat). But then I'm used to big dogs that live outside! Oh my how Stella has sneaked her way into changing our lives.
Mouse on the Mantel..
Have you ever heard of Elf on the Shelf? It is a fun tradition that sadly wasn't around when our kids were little - oh my the fun I would of had! As it was I used to get the kids sooo excited over Santa coming...
My family are fun! They have said they will go along with my teenage version... SIGH roll their eyes as teens do!... But I am sure I did see a twinkle of Christmas joy in their eyes.
My kitchen mouse will become the Mouse on the Mantle from Cranberry Thanksgiving until Christmas day and each family member is to play!
.(James did say the mouse had hung himself due to the ordeal...) TEENS!
