Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!!!!!!

Everyone has so many things to be thankful for and I try to think of that everyday, not just on Thanksgiving. First and Foremost, God gave his only Son, Jesus, so that we may have eternal life with him. Without that- life would be pretty dismal. We are so lucky to live in this country. I don't think we think about that enough-unless we know someone who is serving our country. I know I am very fortunate to have a wonderful family who accepts me as I am- with all the weird quirks that I have! And great supportive friends- especially my best friend, Teresa, who is always there for me and I know I can call numerous times a day and she won't get sick of me talking! I know we all love the food - but what's really important is to tell those in your life how much you love them- so do that today! Have a Wonderful Day spent with Family and Friends!

Wagon Box Painted

Well, I got the box for the wagon painted before the snow flies. It will protect it better and stand out better in the snow. Now I just need to come up with an idea for the Christmas season to decorate it with.

Old Wagon Base

Well, Eric and I finally got the top of the hearse off the carriage bottom. It was no simple job and we should have had a couple more people to help. I asked my dad if he could build a box to put on the top so I could use it for the rest of the year to decorate for the seasons- flowers in spring, pumpkins after halloween, flags for the 4th, etc. He asked his friend, Ernie Newberry to help. I'm sure Ernie was the master mind behind the box- he's a great carpenter and has done several projects for my parents, including a beautiful vanity for their bathroom. It turned out perfectly and I can't wait to paint it and find a carriage seat for it. Thanks guys- It looks great!

Turkey Farm on the Zimmerman Estate

Our family farm used to raise turkeys. In this first picture you can see the windows before they were shortened. Also the barn in the back is still there. This is Aunt Ann- Uncle Glenn Zimmerman's first wife. He was the 3rd generation to live in the farm before my husband came to live here. Wonder what year this car is?

Fall Party of the Past

The front gate at my house. I made the wreath with real apples and a twig welcome sign. The front of the house built around 1855. Notice the real apples strung on the front porch.
Pumpkins and a twig wreath in my urns.

The side porch.

The food at the party-carmel apples with real twig handles and pumkin pie.

Table set up with hot dogs, marshmellows, and popcorn for the fire.

A place to sit, relax, and eat by lamp light.

Always a hay-ride.

Front porch rockers.

Gourd Rack

I usually display my watering cans on this rack, but thought it would be fun for some more gourds-how many did I grow anyway? I had to think of a lot of places to put them. I'll store them and dry them for next year!

Iron Porch Posts

A few years ago my dad found and gave me this iron porch posts with acorns and leaves. I like to put them out next to my back entrance in the fall.

Flowers in the spring, pumkins or gourds in the fall, and real greenery in the winter. I love to change these urns for the seasons as an entrance to my house.

My Favorite Bench

My husband bought me this bench for Christmas one year(we usually don't exchange gifts). It had to be shipped from Texas by semi. I really like it because no one else in the are has one and it look good out under the big tree in our yard.

Leaf Shutter

I found these old shutters a long time ago and alway put them out next to the garage door in the fall for some color and fun.

Cornstalks, Gourds, and More

Well, with the time change it's going to be difficult to get pictures taken. I took this at 6:30 this morning before work. Just a simple little fall decoration.

On to Thanksgiving

Here's my favorite Thanksgiving decoration. It's in my kitchen window and I see it everyday. I really like Thanksgiving- a simple holiday with just a few decorations, great food and time spent with family and friends without any expectation of gifts. A time to really sit back and relax and think about what's important.
