So much to be thankful for...
These two girlies of course...
and there is this guy that I kind of like...

We are so fortunate to have each other and to be surrounded by loving family and friends who add so much to our lives (you know who you are!).
We are lucky to be able to do things that we love...
and to live in this wonderful valley full of nature's beauty.

I am thankful that within a few hours we will be at my dad's cooking a feast and welcoming people to join us!

I hope your feast is fabulous and that you are surrounded by the love of family and friends.

Happy happy Thanksgiving,

xoxo      Elizabeth

I was sitting at my computer this morning and I heard something that sounded like rain...but it wasn't wet out...I took a look out the window and solved the little mystery...leaves...bright yellow leaves 'raining' down from the pecan tree.  They were calling to me...psst...get your camera...come outside...
So I did.  Even though I was in my jammies - and not even matching jammies! I was in my night gown with flamingo pj bottoms, two sweaters and black footy socks!  But the leaves were calling so on went my polka-dot rain boots and out into the world I went!
And, by the world I mean my backyard where these pictures are proof that there is a lot of raking to be done...oh well a good excuse for exercise and time out of doors.

It was beautiful out there! So glad I went! You can see that there will be a new pecan crop soon.  They are difficult to get out of their shells, but so worth it with their sweet taste.
The Mulberry is turning also...
so pretty.
Like I was saying...lots of work to be done...leaves everywhere...but they are so nice to look at and even jump in! I am remembering the days with little girlies who sat in the piles and jumped in the piles and threw the leaves in the air while I took pictures...Great memories!

I am enjoying this long gorgeous Fall!

Go on out and pick a leaf will make you smile!
