It's Official...

Thanksgiving 2013
 We had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday. Just the right amount of
food, dessert made by our friend, Richard, and Tag had a canine pal to
chase around for the day. The weather started out chilly, but warmed
up in the afternoon, so we had all the doors open as the kitchen heated up.

Tag was more interested in his pal, Stout, than in having his photo taken.
Maybe he'll behave better for our annual Christmas pic! A girl can hope, right?
 Now, here's the "official" part...It's officially the first day of my Extended
Birthday! My first package arrived in the mail from my beautiful friend,
Sherry! I saw this package in the mailbox and had no idea why I was
getting something from her, so this was a complete surprise, my friend!
 When I opened the box, there were wrapped goodies inside. Her card
warmed my heart, and then I realized that she was sending Birthday
gifts to me!  She sent stunning acorn fabric, an acorn cookie cutter, and
hand-crafted elf shoe ornament, and a gorgeous glass acorn ornament.
I was overwhelmed with her generosity! I already know exactly what
I'm going to do with the fabric, and I can't wait to use the cookie cutter.
 The elf shoe will hang on our Christmas tree this year and I immediately 
headed into the studio to hang the ornament with my other acorn ornament 
treasures. (I didn't have one like this, Sherry! It's perfect.) So many fun gifts!

Thank you, my dear friend for your thoughtfulness. You've officially kicked
off my Birthday celebration for 2013. (Handsome said "thanks", too! lol)
Let the festivities commence!
I really can't tell you how much I appreciate you in my life. 
I love ya, girlfriend.

I ditto your sentiments of how grateful I am for you. Happy Extended Birthday...
