May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14 NIV

And the Holiday Season begins....

Halloween went by in a flash as the stores hurried to put out Christmas decorations.  Whatever happened to Thanksgiving and Fall decor?  Not to worry.  I have a tub of my own decor items used over the years.  I certainly don't need much new these days. We celebrated at Jon and Lissa's this year with plenty of good food including my pumpkin chiffon pie with coconut crust.....yummmm.  

It is fun to transfer the hosting tradition to Jon's family.  After dinner, the DGDs enjoyed watching Sound of Music while the grown-ups played Scrabble

 All set for company with treat bags put together by Makayla and Violet

 Sound of Music seems to be a holiday tradition for the DGDs.

So now we move on to the Christmas Season.  Time to put away Fall and bring out the Christmas Spirit.  Looking forward to spending some time reflecting on "the reason for the season".  Thankful for all my many blessings.
