And on to Christmas....

A lady was picking through the frozen turkeys at the grocery store, but couldn’t find one big enough for her family. She asked the stock boy, “Do these turkeys get any bigger?” The stock boy answered, “No ma’am, they’re dead.”


Hahhahaaaaaa......

So I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving. Ours was quiet -- with my husband up north & my grandma in the nursing home, that left me, my mom & my kids. I was talking to a vendor rep at work today, & she said she had to travel 4 hours to get to her parents house. I said I wouldn't mind that drive, if a huge family were there waiting for me. She said there were a total of 45 people at her parents house!! Yikes!! We've never had 45 family members, not even counting the dead ones!! She said they had 2 turkeys, a ham & a turkey breast. We had 6 Cornish Hens. I guess the positive side of that is there wasn't a lot of clean up!

I'm still not in the craftin' mood -- good thing I gave up making my Christmas cards a while ago. The first year I stamped I made 80 to send out. The next year I bought cards. Last year I didn't even send any. I thought since there are no new cards in the house, that I might show one from last year. Yes, it's cheating. But it's my blog & I can cheat if I want to.





This is one of my favoritest ones ever. In fact, I'm pretty sure this one is still sitting on my craft table somewhere. I don't think I ever got around to finishing the inside to sell it. Yep, when I procrastinate I go all out. This card was done for a High Hopes challenge -- the original post is HERE.


And I leave you with a picture of my fur-baby Elwood, thinking he's still a wee one that fits into any box that happens to be lying around the house. Um, Elwood --- you're crushing the sides of our box!




If you can believe it, this cat used to weigh 26 pounds!!! Yes, you read that right -- 26 pounds. Can you imagine what that box would look like if he tried to stuff himself in it before??!? When our other baby Jake was diagnosed with diabetes, we switched both of them to an all-canned diet -- much better for cats. Elwood ended up losing lots of weight & today he is 16 pounds! He's 16 years old & in great health -- & is still quite the baby :)

Thanks for visiting & I wish I could say I'll have a card for you soon -- but in the last 7 days I've stamped one image. I might finish that card by Valentines Day.

I love that you talk about your family being so small. I used to joke that we could spend our holidays in a bathroom and have space left over. Now that Mom is going, we could almost downsize to a closet. Doesn't have to be a walk in either :) Loved the turkey story!

That card is STILL just as cute!! :) Had to laugh at your cat, love it...and 45 people, whoa! I think the most we've had is around 25. I know how it is with the crafting mood, been there a few times...mostly this whole year, haha. ~hugs
