Heidi’s Wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday!!
LOS OSOS, CA – Sunday morning – I knew if I planned a quiet holiday weekend, it would probably not happen — and it didn’t — but that’s ok!! It was a wonderful holiday weekend!!
This year, I told all of my family I was cooking Thanksgiving dinner no matter what. I didn’t care who came, I was going to cook for Thanksgiving. Last year we went to visit our granddaughter Savannah at boarding school. I so missed the holiday smells and the leftovers when we returned home. This year as our family continues to grow with extended families of their own… I knew some of our kids wouldn’t be able to visit.
Our daughter Gina and her hubby Gary came visiting first. My daughter Starr and her daughter Savannah came and joined us for dinner which was sooooo good.
After Thanksgiving yummies Gina and I headed for the studio…Gina loves to mosaic. My family frequently receives my mosaic art for gifts. She says she never tires of mosaics. (Good to know ’cause I was thinking everyone would tire of them!) So we
mosaic’d away all day Friday.
Gina and Gary decided to plant a rosebush for each of their kids. They wanted to make mosaic garden art to place by each plant — isn’t that a cool idea! So here are the mosaic brick garden art pieces we created. Gina picked words and alphabet letters to match each mosaic. We had so much fun!!!
Then just as Gina and Gary left for home with their treasures, our son Woody and his family stopped by. We went over to the beach and gathered stones (check out the heart shapes I found – love them!). I was able to get a photo of Woody, Suzi and the girls while the boys (Mason, Josh and Vince) climbed the rocks.
The ocean was amazing today. So I thought I would share it.
The weekend isn’t quite over but it has been amazing…..yes I am grateful for my family.
Sending Lots of Love, Heidi
