Thanksgiving Ideas and Funtastic Friday 152

Funtastic Friday Poster

FUNTASTIC FRIDAY 152 LINK PARTY

November and Thanksgiving plans!  I do believe this year that I will cook in my newly remodeled kitchen, which I should show photos of one of these days.  My husband opened up my work area and it is so nice now!  Some of my kids are working so not everyone will join in--anyone else have that situation?  Even though it has been years since my older kids left home, it is still sad when we can't all be together for a holiday.

I do have a few ideas to share for THANKSGIVING.   I have a few recipes and a cute free printable banner to decorate with.  I don't have my decorations out yet.....
