Changes and A Thanksgiving Wish

Life is all about changes.  Sometimes they are good changes and sometimes bad, but either way, change is inevitable.  As you can see from my photos, our house is now finally on the market, and we are searching for a new house in a new city that we will call home.  It is all so bittersweet as so many things in life are.  I am leaving the town that I have called home my whole life.  The house that we are selling is where our last baby was born and the house that we have lived in the longest since we have been married.  Our children for the most part grew up here, and I will miss it very much.  Many memories and milestones were shared in this house.  But as we all know...life must go on.  I hope that our new city and home will be a happy one for all of us.  It will be a very hectic year for holidays this year though.  I love the holidays, so this will be sort of sad for me.  I am going to try to make the best of it though.  I will really miss sharing the holidays with my family when we move.  It is not easy for us to travel with our children for many reasons, so I don't guess we will do it much once we are settled.  Well, I don't want to keep rambling about my reluctance, so I will switch gears here and wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving.  May you all have many blessing to come.  I am very thankful to have you as my friends here on blogger and love hearing from you all.  Enjoy your turkey dinners and all the other wonderful goodies that go with it.

This little guy and a couple of his friends are on our fence post every single day devouring the walnuts from our black walnut tree.  Our cats spend hours just watching every move they make. lol

Christmas Altered Tin

Trying as I might to find something to post for all my blogging friends.  I found this image that required very little coloring which is essential for me right now, so I put together this quick and easy altered tin to fill with some yummy Christmas candies for a little someone special in my life.   I think since this was so easy to do, that I might just do some more of them with a few different images if time  permits.  It is snowing here today, so I guess I am feeling the Christmas spirit a little bit.  My head is spinning so much these days, that it seems normal for me to skip right over Thanksgiving and dive right into Christmas.
Hoping that you can all take time to enjoy every special moment that this season brings.  It seems so much anymore that in the blink of an eye time passes us by.  Can't wait to slow down here and savor the moments once again.
Take care my friends, and have a beautiful weekend.......Happy Veteran's Day to all out there that have fought for peace and freedom in our world!  We appreciate you.
