Thanksgiving Decorations and a new family member

I thought I'd share these little figures of piligrims. Alan brought them home one day about 30 years ago and I just love them. Put them out every Thanksgiving. Nancy Huggins made the raggedy runner and it fits perfectly with the theme.

Many of our decorations were destroyed in the garage fire we had some years ago. I've been picking things up as I find them. This little turkey was found recently at the dollar store and I think it looks great with the fabric pumpkins.

Next I'll be putting in the leaf for our table and doing a table  of sorts. I have a lovely large harvest  tablecloth that was my dear mothers.  But that's for a different day, still some time before the big feast. We have been invited to a neighbors house but I still want to decorate and will have a turkey as we all love the leftovers.

I've listed all the 12 Days of Christmas cards I've got completed. I still have 3 to go, however, with the weeks flying by, I don't know if I will be able to finish the series this year. I thought I'd better list what I have got done. The 10 Lords A Leaping is a difficult pattern, a challenge which I enjoy but having to watch our grandson takes up alot of my time. Plus we have a new puppy, I really wasn't up for that challenge however our grandson loves her so, I didn't have the heart to say no.

Bella is very small, part chihuahua and part (can you believe it!) pit bull. She's a friendly sweet little thing and lively. I can't seem to get a good photo of her as she's constant movement.

  not the greatest photo, she was busy chewing on a rubber bone. She's 9 weeks old and we're busy getting her house trained which is something I'm really not good at. I'm really a cat person. So we now have 3 dogs, 4 cats, and two Bearded Dragon lizards. Phew! 3 of the cats are ours, the rest are our sons. Quite a zoo.

Here is our son with his bearded dragon in front of our house. Very calm and gentle lizard and no problem to take care of, his name is Rango and Don feeds him meal worms and crickets which he gets at the reptile store here in town. The lizard also likes greens and other vegetables at times. Don keeps him in a large aquarium in his room, with a heat lamp. He bought our grandson a baby bearded dragon which Jay called Rosy. She has her own aquarium with similar feeding habits.
