Thanksgiving Food

What would Thanksgiving be without lots of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy? We also had pumpkin, french apple pie, cherry pie, chocolate cream and a Reeses cream pie. But don't forget the pretzel sticks dipped in frosting and sprinkles and also little pretzel squares with frosting inbetween. Homemade Reeses cups and a sweet chex mix and you couldn't find room to taste it all. We played games, painted pictures, took pictures and had many laughs and an all around good time was had by all.

Fresh Squash

My neighbor brought me two nice buttercup squash. I baked them and then froze some of it for later. It is just delicious. It is so good with lots of butter. But also delicious with some brown sugar on it. It makes a great side dish and easy way to get your vegetable. It is so nice to have good neighbors share their gardens with you.

Puppies vs Babies! The Ultimate Showdown

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Puppies vs. Babies for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Now here is a really fun contest.  Have you every thought about whether Puppies vs. Babies are cuter?  Some babies are just little dolls from the second they are born, however, there are many babies who are just the opposite.  They are all red and only a mother could love those little faces.  Some people think all babies are so cute but I like to be honest.  I am not going to say they are cute when they are not.  This contest is to determine once and for all which is cuter so they have a  Puppies vs. Babies online contest and it is so easy to go online and vote for which you think will win the prize so hurry and get your vote in now.  Get your votes in by November 23, and let everyone know which you think will win. And put your comments down too.  The winner will receive $5000.  Isn't that a great prize?  My Holly is a little Boston Terrier and her face is white, the opposite of most Boston Terriers.  She is so different, you just have to love her.  She is so smart too and learns tricks very quickly and she gives you unlimited love. I think if I had been quicker, before the contest closed, I could have entered her picture in the PvB-CuteDar-Green-300x250-Backup.jpg contest and everyone would have voted for her.

Chanhassen Theater, Minnesota

I took a bus trip yesterday to Chanhassen Theater in Minnesota. It was sponsored by our bank. It is for senior citizens and we had a bus full. We had a great lunch and saw a very energetic musical. They said Chanhassen is the largest theater of its kind in the United States. I did not know that and was really surprised to learn that. If you get a chance, go see a show there.

Frost on the Pumpkins

Boy did it get cold here. A big cold wave went through and took all our lovely warm Fall weather with it. We had a very heavy frost on everything. It was time to turn on the furnace and turn up the thermostat. Out came the winter coat and it was time to switch from shorts to slacks and jeans. Then they predicted rain and maybe snow flakes but we were lucky and it didn't happen. We just got a little rain.
