Thanksgiving weekend

Thanksgiving weekend is pretty well over...and it was special.  Wednesday evening there was some nasty weather so kind of changed plans for then but then Thursday a.m. was better and company arrived.  Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures from that day....like I meant to... but do have a few from other things we did this weekend...

Friday....


canning venison....

helping make Mommy's birthday cake....

a little something from earlier this fall...

and Zoie and Cousin Morgan meeting for the first time!


This post is some catching up ... summer is past and fall well on its way out, too....harvest was good and glad to have all in the bin and field work done....now the state is settled in to the 9 day gun deer hunting season....not much work gets done....Shaun is about the only deer hunter left in our family, though...and he got a beauty with his bow.....shaunandhelen.blogspot.com....now it is time for Thanksgiving .... and we look forward to family, food and fun (plus a few chores thrown in!)!  Last weekend we enjoyed time with Theo, Sarah and Zoie.  They were up this way Friday and Saturday to help Will and Becky roof their house so was fun to see them again.  They will be going to her folks for Thanksgiving.
So far we haven't gotten any of the real nasty weather that has started to pass through although just a little bit of ice this morning on the way to meeting. Has been a rainy, gray day all day today. All the snow last weekend by-passed us.
May all who may pass by here and read this have a nice Thanksgiving.....
