Thanksgiving 2012 pictures~ YUM!

Can you believe it's the end of November?? I don't know how it passes by so quickly...time that is.

It seems there is never enough of it...whether in a day..a month or when family is visiting.
Hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving holiday, I have so many pictures of how I decorated my home for the are just a few:

First...the bird

Tom was just under 22lbs. and DELICIOUS!!!

Here are the appetizers:

Are you drooling yet??

What about now??
Yummy!!! Okay...I need to stop posting pictures of food because my tummy is starting to growl!!

Here are some hand-stamped goodies~ all made using justa few supplies. Cajun Craze card stock, the Big Shot and Petite Pocket Bigz XL die (123131), First Edition Specialty DSP (121878), Champagne glimmer paper (127885), Comfort Cafe DSP (126898) and a few other accessories. Just to let you know...I only used about 1/2 of the pack of Comfort Cafe DSP...can you believe it?? I was scared when I started using it, that I would run out~ but it went a long way!!

I seriously almost had a heart attack when I found the same color 'Cajun Craze' napkins at Walmart!! 

Here is a banner that I had hung in our family room~ this ones a keeper...LOVE me some fall colors!!



At the kids table I made a few pumkins:

On the counter I displayed a rosette made using the Designer Rosette Bigz XL die (125594).

Here is the back:

One more thing to mention....all of the writing on the tags was done by my friend Marie~ my handwriting stinks!! So a HUGE thank-you to Marie...she used the new Gold Stampin' Dazzle marker (128979). Love it!!!

Now...I mentioned how quickly time goes by?? Here is a picture of me with my niece Kaia (I call her my monster) she is so stinkin' cute and I could just eat her up~ she's growing up so fast!! After dinner we did some stamping! Just ignore the big blob on my forehead...darn skin cancer :(
Don't forget to wear SPF!! Even in the cooler months ahead~ trust me!!

 It was a wonderful holiday, began actually the night before when we started cooking!! The left overs are now gone...and the house is decorated for Christmas!! I was seriosly dreading's a lot of work!! Not sure yet what I'll come up with for Stampin' Up! home decor...but you know it will be something!! So stay tuned!!
