This is the same tree that I posted before..I thought you might want to see how much the leaves have changed colors in the last week or so. I so love smelling the leaves outside...and the cool weather. For a few days it was so windy that it blew just about everything off our front porch. Some of my normal decorations even were broken. I guess that means I am on the search for new items that I love...but I will have to wait for next years garage sales for that. I also wanted to share that my parents are not leaving for Florida until the day AFTER Thanksgiving and I feel like that is the best Christmas present I could get this year. It has been many years (like maybe 15) since they have been here for the holidays and I am so hoping that all of our family can get together since that almost never happens. I think they would be happy to have us all together...it's not that we live far apart...it's just that sometimes we don't get along too well...so I pray that this is the year to put it aside for a change and start new. So on that note I would like to say that I am Thankful for my family...I am blessed.
