Happy Thanksgiving and update on stitching

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. Enjoy the day. I will spending the afternoon with my daughter, granddaughter, grandson, niece and great niece. My niece is having us for the meal this afternoon.
I discovered a new receipe for a Pumpkin Googy Butter cake and I baked it this morning.
I have completed 3 "Wine Glass" ornaments by Mill Hill, "The Toy Store"-Hometown Holiday series by Littlehouse Needleworks, giving me two of the series done.

Update on stitching and life in General.

Fall is in the air. Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends and family. I will bake a pumpkin pie gooey cake, a recipe I just found.  Plan to spend the day with family, always a great day.
The last two weeks have been full of work, stitching, youth rodeos and lunches. My granddaughter, Anna, rides and competes in The Texas High School Rodeo in pole bending and barrel racing. She is improving every rodeo. Next my Lamar Consolidated Class of '58, Rosenberg, TX loves to get together. We met on Monday the 9th at Olive Gardens and enjoyed catching up and visiting. We are a great group of young senior citizens. We meet every other month for lunch and visiting.
Also, have been stitching on WIPs.
