Happy And Blessed

Excuse the mess, excuse the noise, my children are making happy memories.
I think all Mothers should have this motto posted in there home, because it's so true!! The stitch picture was made by me and the ginger bread family beside it was made by my sister.

I am Happy and Blessed.....what a wonderful 5 days I have had!!!!! The craft show was a success, I had the BEST Thanksgiving I have had in years and I got to spent 5 days with my precious family. It doesn't get much better then that.

Brent and I started our Thanksgiving vacation on Wednesday. We headed to Spooner around 8:30am and arrived around 12 noon. When we got there, Brent headed to the woods to hunt and my daughter Kara and I headed in town to shop. We hit all our hot spots, the thrift stores, the antique shops, The Rusty Bucket, Pamida and Economart. While in town, we got all the groceries we needed for our Thanksgiving dinner. My daughter, Kara, was in charge of the menu, she had many new recipes to try on us this year. We baked the pies Wednesday night because the oven would be full of turkey on Thursday. Our Thanksgiving day started with having our morning coffee together (a wonderful way to start any day). After morning coffee we went full steam ahead cooking our Thanksgiving meal. We eat at 6pm and it was all delicious!

********** Craft Show Was A Success ********

One of my stitch pictures...I love this saying

My sister arrived in Spooner around 1:00 on Friday, we bummed around town until it was time to set up at the craft show. It is always nice when you can set up the night before and take some time to place things nicely instead of being rushed. Our cousin Jeanie had a booth next to us, it was so nice to be able to spend the day with her also. Jeanie and I traded a few items...she had some amazing pillows she made out of an old rag rug, I LOVE them. I also picked up from her some old feed sacks bags and vintage linens from her.

Me and my sister......Sister's Forever!!!!!!

I LOVE doing craft shows with my sister, it is precious time we can spend together. We each have our jobs, she mans the cash box and I keep things stocked and straightened up in our booth. Our Mom was also there helping us keep things going...thanks Mom, you are a real trooper.

Brent and I are back in Rapids now and I am gearing up for a few shows here this week with Joni from Country Freckles. I have to make some more deer and a few more mice items so I better get busy. Hope you all had a blessed Thanksgiving....God Bless...Rhonda
