Okay, I have to admit that I have neglected my blog to…wait for it… work on a big event for the blog after Thanksgiving. (Yes, I do get that ignoring your blog to work on your blog is a little ironic. and redundant.)

Moving on… We had issues with our gratitude tree staying up. This weekend I decided to put some branches that I saved for projects to use. I stuck them in a wide vase that was half full of uncooked rice. (To hold the branches up.) We all have really liked the change and it will make a great adornment for Thanksgiving dinner.
