I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.
Every year the kids go to grammy's house and make place mats of some sort to use on the table. This year we had more like place cards. They hung very sweetly on everyone's chair.
Around here we try to keep it as fun as possible. Note the napkin rings that quickly became eye wear.
And, of course, since napkin rings are very multifaceted they quickly turned into this jenga type game. This one held everyone's attention for quite some time and there were lots of ohhhhh's and ahhhh's.
After all the dinner stuff was done and things were all cleaned up.....G asked to break out the bubbles. Of course, you cant blow bubbles unless you are in the proper attire.
Then we had a little knitting lesson. Grandma loves to knit. K showed interest a few years back, but it didn't really stick...so now she is at it again and this time seems to be very dedicated. I told her to keep on going....as tight as her stitches are....she ought to be able to make mama a really warm blanket just in time for her birthday.....hint hint.
Not to be left out, of course. G has to learn how to knit, too. He went right up to grandma and said, "I want to learn how to knit, too, grandma."
So, we all spent a very cozy evening knitting, reading, sitting by the fire, playing some games, and of course, enjoying some pumpkin pie.
