Slowing Down the Crazyness

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I did. This time of year SOOOOO much is happening. We want to think of others. Help others have a better holiday season. Especially connect with family and have more meaningful times with your immediate family. In achieving this, things can get a little crazy. There are a few things that I usually do that I will be cutting back on, such as blogging. So....I will be here off and on, as it seems to have been going lately. I'm always so happy to get back to visit. I miss the humor, inspiration, and cleverness of all of you.

We had a lovely time Thanksgiving day, hosting 25 people. Here we are getting ready to fill our plates. We brought in four tables from other rooms and lined them up through the dining room and into the living room.
When we are all stuffed, we clear everything, and play games. It's a good time to have fun together and talk about what is happening in each others lives. It seem like no matter how much we talk, there is always more to say.
Later, the pies and other desserts come out. There is so much, I always take some to friends later and share the bounty.

As we begin the last month of this year, take time. Remember what this season is all about. Think of ways to enrich this season for your family and friends. Most of the gifts I'm giving this year, as in years past, will be handmade. So I'll be busy finishing those projects. I'll share a few along the way. Enjoy December! The season of giving. Remember what we have been given and rejoice in it.

I'm trying to figure out how to actually enjoy this season. Usually I'm very stressed out for the month of December!
