Is that Santa flying through swirling leaves and chocolate snowflakes? It certainly is and he is headed our way - for Thanksmas! This card, made on a base of More Mustard mixed with layers of Autumn Traditions and Merry Moments, will be sent to tell my sister-in-law Joan that we will be there for Thanksmas. It used to be easy to get together when our children were young, but children grow, move away and start their own families. Life isn't quite so simple but all of us still gather on Thanksgiving. We start with a traditional turkey dinner at a beautifully set fall table. Then Joan jingles bells and leads us into a living room decked out for Christmas. There are packages, ribbon candy, glowing candles and the excitement of seeing the next generation of little ones enjoy it all. (Joan has also been known to squeeze in a baby shower or engagement party between courses if need be!) It's a wonderful start to the holiday season and everyone gets to spend Christmas at home - no worries about traveling in bad weather - let it snow! In response to PPA's challenge this week I would like to say I am thankful for a wonderfully spirited family that created its own holiday............Happy Thanksmas everyone!
