Smoky Mountain Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving in the Smoky Mountains with my 2 daughters and their families. We stayed in this lovely cabin. The weather was great. Warm days and cool nights. Campfires and smores, a little hiking and some shopping. Of course we had a great turkey dinner on Thursday, my son in law made the turkey and the rest of us pitched in for the rest of the dinner and clean up. Then on Friday we visited Paula Deen's Kitchen in Cherokee. Two big dinners in a row, I'm afraid to even step on the scale!Gatlinburg was all decked out for Christmas.The kids got in some fishing.The Polar Express to the North Pole was a hit.
Very nice get-away. Missed Neal and his family. Hoping they can join us next year.

I did manage to get Grady and Kendall's costumes done for Halloween. Here are Woody and Jessie. They were so cute!!

My guest room closet is stashed to the brim with scrap booking supplies, Christmas decorations and lots and lots of photos. It is looking better, I am throwing away a lot of junk that I have been holding onto for one reason or another but it is a time consuming proces
