Thanksgiving Prep

Monday, November 21, 2011

Today I am planning the menu and decorating for Thanksgiving, cleaning house, and doing laundry.  I wanted to share this adorable banner I bought from Alicia @ La Famille.  Her Etsy store is La Famille at Home, and you can find some very cute Christmas items there.



I might need to stop by and look for some Christmas goodies at La Famille at Home.

How are your Thanksgiving preparations coming along?

Until next time...

  1. I still have to do my shopping but I always do it on Tues.morning to beat the crowds so I will write up my list tonight. Hope you have a blessed day with your family. It is just us so pretty low key.

  4. Hi Ricki Jill, what a great Thanksgiving Banner. Looks perfect on the mantle. It creates such a festive mood for your Thanksgiving plans with family.
    I may just pop over at Alicia's Etsy sho[ for some Christmas shopping. I'm jumping ahead to Christmas decorating this week. We are traveling for Thanksgiving so I'm not cooking this year. Everyone comes home for Christmas. Happy Thanksgiving to your and yours.

  11. Love the banner. Mine are going fine, since I'm not doing any except for cooking a small dinner. Got a few things to pick up at the store, but almost done!! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Blessings!!

  12. Oh what a cute banner Ricki...I love it. I think the next couple of days will be pretty busy for most of us...Even though we're having Thanksgiving dinner over at my mother-in-law's I'm helping out with the ham, stuffing and a few other dishes...So I still have some cooking and getting ready to do. Wishing you and your family a wonderful, and very happy Thanksgiving day.

    Hugs and Kisses,

  13. Love your 'GIVE THANKS' banner. Happy Thanksgiving Ricki Jill. I hope you're surrounded with everyone you love. I am thankful for such a special blogging friend.
