Gifts from my wonderful friends

Well as many of you know we had a fire this summer that destroyed all our Christmas decorations...well I have been amazed, thrilled, and touched by the "gifts" that my dollmaking friends have sent me...first many went together and sent us a tree...yes there will be pictures when it's decorated...as if that isn't enough...Kerry sent me a mini tree to replace the one she had so graciously given to me several years ago, eggie sent me a whole box of Christmas goodies and Sue sent me the wonderful tree I posted on a couple of weeks ago, mom of course beaded my treetop and gave me a gnome ornament...and still packages keep coming in...here are ornaments with the givers name on them...there are no words to say how wonderful this has made me feel...a time I thought I would dread I'm truly excited to decorate...thank you each and everyone of you and truly these will be cherished...

Turkey time in Iowa

We belong to a group that puts on a "turkey fry and dance" each year...this is our 5th annual Shake your tail feathers event teehee...it's an all day event...and of course Jeff and I are on different committees....Jeff marinates 20 turkeys and then they will start frying tomorrow at 9am so we can eat at 5pm...so needless to say our kitchen is filled with turkeys at this moment...OH MY...I need to do something to donate for a raffle prize...hummm I better get on it...
