What a Beautiful Weekend

Well I started my weekend on Thursday & Friday roasting 4 Turkeys and boiling what seemed like a gazillon pounds of potatoes & my poor daughter did like wise....It was her turn to cook for the German~American club which we are all members of.
My daughter Meri, her husband Evan, Gary(her dad, my hubby) & I all rolled up our sleeves on Saturday and created what was a spectacular not to mention yummy Thanksgiving Dinner for nearly 90 guests. And we pulled it off with out a hitch in our giddy-up! I need to take a moment and do the "mom thing" by bragging about what a fantastic job my daughter did! All her hard work, planning, preparing & organizing all of us. She did a "uber fantastic" job! Kudos baby girl.
Oh & I wore a traditional German outfit for the evening's event, after all I am half German.

Sunday was a leisure day that was spent at the Gintz's farm for worship service, a little banjo pickin' and then food with wonderful neighbors both old and young.
The Gintz's disassembled & re-assembled 2 very old log cabins onto their property and now use one as a guest cottage and the other as a gathering room. They came across a wagon wheel that they converted into a hanging light fixture and one of Candy's re purposed apron's adorns the wall.

Oh and for those of you wondering about "our Deer" well we have 4 regulars that feed on our lawn and our Arborvitae bushes....I saw them in my lavender..... now they are getting just a we bit to comfortable...we even walk out there and tell them to find a different property to feed on and they look at us like we are a couple of homely looking creatures! lol!

Hope you had a beautiful weekend too.
