 Thankful Thursday Please stop by and say hello to Brian and all the fun folks who participate.

Thankful for the CHRISTmas lights in our neighborhood. We had a last minute item we needed at the store so we zipped over to our Safeway and they had what we needed. Not many customers late in the evening. Y A Y !  SO we took the back roads home. This was so lovely.

This one was not a great shot because a car was coming up behind us. We will get more photos as the lights come up all over. We love it and are grateful for them.

Thankful for people who go the extra mile to make their yards beautiful. We have several blow ups so we plan to put them up. Once the snow melts away. We bought Baby Shark to add to our Snoopy, our penguin, giant Santa, Olaf from Frozen and my favorite the three piece nativity. Hopeful we can buy a few more to add to our collection. We have great electrical outlets on the front yard.

Ellen  and Lorianne co host Friendly Fill In's. They each think up two questions. Here they are:

1. Why is __________so expensive?
2, On holidays, I always have a second serving of ___________.
3. I'm eternally grateful for _____________.
4. 'Tis the season for _____________.

My answers are here:

1. Why is everything so expensive? I noticed groceries skyrocketed and most everything else. Oh it is a hard year for everyone. 2020 is lucky to get a one star rating.

2. On holidays, I always have a second serving of veggies and desserts, so they balance each other out.

3. I'm eternally grateful for having been raised with wonderful traditions and the most marvelous parents anyone could ever have.

4. 'Tis the season for good cheer. Seeing loved ones and good friends and enjoying all the festivities. I personally still send some cards out for CHRISTmas. I love getting mail that is not junk. HaHa!

My sweet mom in the plaid dress in front of her mom. Auntie Jo had not been born yet and mom lost two sisters who I believe passed away at birth or shortly afterward. Frances and Rose. My daddy bought Rose a beautiful headstone before his passing. Frances was buried in the old cemetery so feeling sad there is no record anyone is aware of.  My grandfather and the young boy, next to my grandma was Uncle Tony and they passed away in a mining cave in 1927. This photo is one that is priceless to me and so grateful I have it.
