1. I've had an interesting week since Thanksgiving Day. We actually didn't stop with Thanksgiving Day for the eating and celebrating. This Christmas tree was in the entrance of the YO Resort Branding Iron Restaurant in Kerrville. It's just off Rt. 10 probably about an hours NW of San Antonio. We joined my son-in-laws mom and family there for brunch on Sunday.
My daughter Heidi and I had been shopping on Saturday while the men folks went hunting out in El Dorado. Carson got to witness his first deer harvest, so he was very excited. They managed to return to Kerrville at exactly the right time for the brunch. I'd post a picture of the deer, but I'm guessing some of you don't really want to see it!
One of the interesting features in the YO are the branding irons hanging from the chandeliers.
Another feature is the huge rodeo horse rider on display. And let me just say the food was wonderful.
2. I've been working on the family calendar on Shutterfly. I actually tried to get out of doing it this year, thinking the kids didn't really appreciate it, but I understand I cannot break tradition. So I have been gathering up pictures like crazy, cropping heads out of pictures for the birthday dates and finding some of the better shots from our travels over the past year.
As I found some pictures I could use of my girls, I came across these that I added a little special feature to for fun.
So I'm just waiting on my son to get one of his family together for one of the calendar pages.j
I think everyone got pretty much the same idea from Pinterest to create a turkey sampler tray. This one is from my nephew and his wife, posted on Facebook. I think they outdid themselves, don't you?
This is my snowman collection. You saw my BIG Santa on my post on Saturday, but these are the smaller ones. The one of the left is my very favorite. If you enlarge the picture you will see the details. He has an owl on his left shoulder, and under his skirt is a fax with a baby fox in the grass. The little kitten on the hearth is also made by the same designer. Everyone now knows...No more Santas! I have to get them all wrapped and stored.
5. Today, I'll be doing a little painting for the Needs Council for the move to the new facility on Llano Street. There will be a much more private arrangement for confidential meetings, storage for all the items we collect for charity, and just a brighter environment. It will be a great move.
Blessings to you all this weekend. I'm joining in today with Willy Nilly Friday 5 and Friday Fragments.
