Lately: Early December Edition

The weekend that gun-deer season opens here is called Deer Widow's Weekend. Many towns have shopping sales, craft shows and other special events to keep the non-hunting women happy. One of those events was a Taste of Home Cooking School and guess who got to be a sous chef for a day!

I didn't have any fun at all! LOL. I ran my tail off from 8:30 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. but had a blast doing it. What a great experience!

My favorite local coffee shop had door prizes for Deer Widow's Weekend and I won this beautiful fresh swag made by The Lily Pad. You can't tell in the picture but this thing is BIG - close to 3' wide! Isn't it awesome? We have it hanging by our back door.

Christian got a nasty cold the week of Thanksgiving so we didn't make the trek to southern Wisconsin to see his family. He ended up spending Thanksgiving on the couch and I felt really bad that he didn't get to enjoy the holiday. My brother was having a small get-together at his house so I went over there for turkey dinner. My grandparents were there and I got the cutest picture of them with my brother's new kitten, Gus. 

The last picture I got of them together was at our wedding over 4 years ago so I'm glad I got a new one! They are both in their late 80's and I think I'm starting to panic a bit about how old they are getting. Hopefully they will be around for many more years to come. I sure do love them. They've been married for over 60 years. That's just amazing!

What a precious photo of your grandparents. Treasure the times you have with them. I no longer have any living grandparents and miss them terribly. There is something so special about the relationship we have with our grandparents.

Beautiful evergreen swag!! Lucky you!
