Fall Holiday Fun

Wow, time has sure got away from me this last month! I am so far behind in blogging and visits. I just do not have the time for it that I used to have, so please don't think I am singling you out if I haven't come for a visit lately!

Anyhow, this last Thursday, my children and I got together in my home for a Thanksgiving dinner. My brother also joined us. This is the family picture that will be going on our Christmas cards.

From left to right, oldest son Sean holding Jake the dummy dog, daughter Tara and her husband Mike, myself, and youngest son Jared.

Here is another pic without the dog.

The table was all set for dinner with lots of yummy food...

...including these yummy pies that my daughter made!

My brother Dave carved the turkey.

During dinner, Sean looks at me with suspicion as Jared chows down. I set the table with lovely dishes, but he still prefers those old plastic Tupperware plates!

Dave looks all amused here. I don't know why his face is so red.

Actually, I think this is after my daughter played some silly ring tones on her new phone. There was one song I was completely unfamiliar with, and as I listened, I said, "Why are they singing about Vag-o-cream?" This, of course, brought out gales of laughter when my daughter told me what was really being said!

Here is Tara and Mike. This is not the best picture of her.

Guess that's why she took her own pic!

Anyhow, dinner was over much too soon. What does one do after such a filling meal? Snooze of course! Mike and Jake catch a few Z's.

Prior to Thanksgiving, there was Halloween! Yes! I am actually posting this a month late, lol. I haven't participated in Halloween for a great many years. This year, however, a friend invited me to a party, and I decided to go as a vampire. I am all caught up in the Twilight craze, and now in a series of books called the House of Night novels by P.C. and Kristin Cast. The first is called Marked, and I am wearing the crescent moon tattoo that all vamps have in that book.

I am so authentic as a vampire, that if you look closely, you can see real batwings on my upper arms!

Here I am with my friend Stacy who invited me. I love her eyes in this! She went as a dark fairy, complete with pointy ears and big copper colored velvety wings.

Her sweetie Brian is a wizard.

Here is Stacy with Angel, the spider woman! Her face makeup was really cool.

I also ran into an old friend Mickie with her beau Jason. He was a G-man and she was his moll.

It was great fun, probably the most fun I've had in a long time! I'll have to do this again next year.

Two more big holidays are yet to come! I can't believe the months are flying by so quickly.

Girl, you don't have batwings! If you do then that means I do! ;-)

Looks like a very fun Thanksgiving, and I love the Christmas pic.

Thanks for coming by, and I am going to look back at your Stella posts. Thanks for the heads up!
Can't wait to see her dyed blue! LOL!

Wonderful times for your family. The costumes look fun too.

Also I remember that your birthday is coming up and how you were in the hospital last year. I am sure you are so glad to not be there for your birthday this year.

Have a very Happy Birthday on Monday!!

I just had mine. That is why I remember yours.
