Thanksgiving at Grandma’s House…

This year my Mother wanted a photo of her and Dad with all the grandchilden. My sister decided to decorate the old sleigh. It has sat in the barn ever since I can remember. (I used to play on it when it still had green velvet seats) Before we knew it everyone was jumping on for photos!

Over the river and through the woods
To Grandfather’s house we go.
The horse knows the way
To carry the sleigh
Through white and drifted snow.

Over the river and through the wood To have a first-rate play. Hear the bells ring, Ting-a-ling-ling! Hurrah for Thanksgiving Day!

Over the river and through the wood -- Oh, how the wind does blow! It stings the toes And bites the nose, As over the ground we go.

Over the river and through the wood –
Oh, how the wind does blow!
It stings the toes
And bites the nose,
As over the ground we go.

Over the river and through the wood, And straight through the barnyard gate. We seem to go Extremely slow -- It is so hard to wait!

Over the river and through the wood,
And straight through the barnyard gate.
We seem to go
Extremely slow –
It is so hard to wait!

Over the river and through the wood -- Now Grandmother

Over the river and through the wood –
Now Grandmother’s cap I spy!
Hurrah for the fun!
Is the pudding done?
Hurray for the pumpkin pie!

Backyard Smore’s

One thing I worried about moving to a small row house in Dc was if we could still host parties. It gets crowded at times, but our backyard gives extra needed space.(also a cute spot for fall evenings while its still warm enough-but be warned! Dc is swampy so arm yourself with plenty of bug spray)

Danny and I had our church youth group over this past October for soft pretzels and smore’s.

We had a 45 minute demonstration on all the ways to make coffee. The kitchen smelled wonderful!
