Thanksgiving weekend!  I can't believe it's almost December.  We spent Thanksgiving with good friends and neighbors.  She's a great cook, so we had PLENTY to eat!!  She even fixed us a plate of leftovers for the next day.
Last weekend (Saturday) we attended a train show in Pasadena--an annual event that Earl looks forward to each year.  We returned home around 5 pm, and Earl went to our neighbors house to get Molly.  On his way home with her, a dog from across the street attacked her and put three punctures in her back.  I called the vet, but of course, he was gone for the weekend!!  I cleaned up the bites as best as I could with antibacterial wash, then put some Neomiacin ointment on the three bites.  She seemed fine.
I figured by Monday when the vet opened, it was too late for stitches, so set out to watch for signs of infection.  On Wednesday she didn't want to eat--BING--take her to the vet!!  This dog ALWAYS wants to eat!  So we went in early.  The vet took one look at the bites and said they needed to be stitched up--even at this late date because they were still open, and oozing!!  So, Molly got to say there and take a little drug induced nap while the vet stitched up her bites.  We picked her up around 4:00 pm, and boy was she glad to get home.  She's now on antibiotics for a week!!  She HAS learned to milk the situation though.  She's got these sad looking little eyes.  This is Friday now, and this evening was the first time she's been excited about dinner time!!  So, I think she's on the mend now.
 These photos were taken the year grandpa and I were there for Christmas.  We so enjoyed our time with Abby, Micah and Sarah.  (And Becky and Brian of course!)  I loved the snow for Christmas.  It was like an extra little present!   And speaking of presents, there were at least a gazillion!!  It took almost a week of working on them to get them all opened. (not kidding!)
For this layout I used the new kit by Simply Scrappy called Tis the Season that you can find here: and the matching templates here:
 These photos were taken on Sarah's very first Christmas.  She was such a happy little sweetie!
I used Ramona the Pest's new Volume 2 Template pack that you can find here:

 These photos were taken two years ago today!  Amy and Scott had been here for Thanksgiving, so they stayed to have the boys help grandpa and grandma assemble the Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving (our tradition).  They had fun putting all the ornaments on the same branch, and making our tree so beautiful!  We really missed their help today!  Grandpa and Grandma didn't even FINISH the tree because we got too tired!  Oh well, there is always tomorrow huh??  :)
For this layout, I used the new kit by Simply Scrappy called This Christmas that you can find here: and her wonderful matching templates that you can find here:
 Wasn't Micah just so cute here with his little pouty face?   He looked so much like his mom at this age!  What a beautiful boy he's growing into!!  These were taken back in 2005, so he's such a BIG boy now!!
I love the kit I used for this layout!  I used the template from the template challenge here:

And here is Micah and Abby again--looking out for Santa!!  They try so hard!!
Graham Like the Cracker made a fun Grab Bag for Black Friday, and all this was in that grab bag!  Template and all!!  You can find it here:
I hope everybody is enjoying their Thanksgiving weekend with family and friends, and not forgetting to thank the Lord for his bountiful love and provisions!!  He is worthy of praise, and I'm so glad that we take this one day of the year to give Him the THANKS we should be giving him every day of the year!!
