Around here....

We were happy to have Cameron home for a quick visit from university to celebrate his birthday...can't believe I have a 21 year old.  His actual birthday is Saturday the 17th but he won't be celebrating with his parents and grandparents....mmm I wonder why?  He has tickets to a concert at the university with his friends.

I decided to set a nice table for dinner this week because I admit we have been eating way too many meals in front of the tv.  We always ate at the table while the kids were young...but now we  often watch the news or a movie while we eat...shameful I know.

Remember my broken oven saga?  Well oddly enough I googled the problem I was having with my oven and there was a forum online with different suggestions....I tried one..and oven was fixed!  I was so excited, now I don't have to buy a new stove!  I missed baking so much I made an apple pie.

Then I cooked a huge turkey dinner.....

Then we all had a nap...the end.


  1. Oh I love this post. Your pooch is just a honey. And that turkey dinner...ummmmmm. So glad your son came home for a birthday celebration.! Your table is so pretty and reminds me that I need to put something together for our Thanksgiving dinner this week!

  2. I just don't understand why our boys don't want to spend birthdays with us (especially their 21st birthdays!)! ;)
    That turkey dinner looks amazing. Isn't the internet amazing with what you can find out there?
