Thanksgiving weekend

Hello readers. Before hubby, the babe and I take off to join our family for Thanksgiving I just wanted to leave you with some post that you may enjoy and may come in handy during this years celebrations.

To give your kitchen table a nice decor for the celebrations check out these gorgeous gourds. Also why not make a vase out of a butter nut squash. Simply cut the top off and hollow out. Place any type of flowers inside (mums are always a nice fall choice) and ta-DA you got yourself a beautiful centerpiece. For beautiful place settings; gather up some leaves, there are lots all over the place, and set them around the out side of the plate. For individual place settings simple write with a sharpie on the leaf the name to which that chair is for. Here is a website that gives you directions if you want something more specific to follow

Now for kitchen stuff. Here are a few of my favorite recipes. Sweet potato pie is an easy and great alternative to old faithful pumpkin pie. These delicious cookies are soft, chewy and go great with any cup of tea. But if you are looking for a alternative to tea why not sit and enjoy a nice hot pumpkin latte.

Enjoy Thanksgiving and don't forget to mediate on the wonderful things God has blessed us with!!!

Psalms 100
A psalm of Thanksgiving

Shout with joy to the LORD, O earth!
Worship the LORD with gladness.
Come before him, singing with joy.
Acknowledge that the LORD is God!
He made us, and we are his.
We are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving;
go into his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him and bless his name.
For the LORD is good.
His unfailing love continues forever,
and his faithfulness continues to each generation.
