Happy Thanksgiving!

Yesterday, Mom, Dad, and Grandma Bev were over for an early Thanksgiving. Joshua and I will be in Monticello on Thursday, so we wanted to spend some time with the rest of the family. (Unfortunately Polly, Greg, and the kids couldn't make it.)

Our table settings included pretty floral plates, paper, but still very fun looking. We put them on gold chargers, and they were quite fancy. I also filled up a cornucopia with fresh flowers, and the room did look very festive.

Shaun went nuts with the food, making a turkey, stuffing, gravy, potatoes, pumpkin mousse. and cranberry sauce (not from a can!). My efforts included broccoli and pecan pie, which is a new favorite of mine. Here are a few pictures from the day.

Going on a Treasure Hunt

I've been quite an absent blogger lately. So sorry!

Last weekend, Shaun and I got out to enjoy the beautiful weather. We went geocaching in a cemetery close to my house. I'd been with Shaun a couple other times, but never had any success locating the cache. My luck changed last weekend! Here are a few action shots documenting my find.

We added Shaun's caching name to the list and were on our way to the next location. Shaun found the second one under a statue of Jesus, which was very exciting. Not only did we find two caches, a record for me, but we had a lovely, sun-shiny November day. Wish they could all be like that.
