Scenes from Thanksgiving & Merry On

Hi Friends,
Well, I can officially say Merry Christmas!,cause the Merry season has begun! I have some scenes from my Thanksgiving ,some peeks before the family arrived and the festivities began.

We always have some sort of display or activity to emphasize Gratitude, this year was the Blessings Tree/ Branch. I started it off, others added their leaves later.I used 4 Burlap Placemats (I won from giveaway at White Weathered Hutch last year) for a table runner.

Edible tablescape ,the candy corn added color and fun.

The Count Your Blessings printable is from Saying it Sweet , I reduced size to add as a label for bottle vase .

The leaves are a freebie from The Celebration Shoppe.

The Weekend before Thanksgiving we went to a mall to shop, They were ready for Christmas.

We enjoyed a ride in a one horse open sleigh. Yeah!

Stopped by Barnes and Noble  and saw a little elf on a self

and a cute little red-nosed deer.

Wow, I hope that's for me ! tee hee

Met this friendly snow person in the Ross store

Also ,we put the tree up in the Family Room.

For a minute ,we put peppermint dog in the tree.

This bokeh  Christmas Tree pic  looks wild.

Some beautiful sky pics. 

I hope you will enjoy this Christmas Season & I wish you to 

I will leave you with this wonderful verse form the Bible :

A merry heart makes a happy face;a broken heart crushes the spirit.
Proverbs 15:13
