A Cute Thanksgiving Day Poem

I hope you all have enjoyed your Thanksgiving Day!
I cooked the Turkey-day meal today and everything went really well!
...and the food turned out great!
Now thats really something to be thankful for!
One year things went pretty bad,
when I took the turkey out of the oven
and the drippings in the pan spilled over and caught on fire!! Yikes!!
In fact everything was so good today,
I was thinking about having a little more soon... Maybe you are too.
But before you do....
You've got to read this cute little Turkey day poem I found
that I thought was cute, and really cracked me up!!

T’was the night of Thanksgiving,
But I just couldn’t sleep.
I tried counting backwards,
I tried counting sheep.
The leftovers beckoned,
The dark meat and white.
But I fought the temptation,
With all of my might.
Tossing and turning,
with anticipation.
The thought of a snack
became infatuation.
So I raced to the kitchen,
Flung open the door,
And gazed at the fridge,
Full of goodies galore.
I gobbled up turkey,
And buttered potatoes,
Pickles and carrots,
Beans and tomatoes.
I felt myself swelling,
So plump and so round.
‘til all of a sudden,
I rose off the ground.
I crashed through the ceiling,
Floating into the sky,
With a mouthful of pudding,
And a handful of pie.
But I managed to yell
As I soared past the trees
Happy eating to all,
Pass the cranberries, please!!
May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey be plump.
May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious,
May your pies take the prize
And May your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off of your thighs!


Now wasn't that cute?! lol!

Did it kinda get ya in the mood for Christmas too?!
Tee hee!!
Now be careful out there tommorrow all you early bird shoppers!!
Hugs, Sherri:)

House of Hatten and Snowman Cookie Jars

I started collecting House of Hatten Christmas ornaments and decor back in the early 80's. I fell in love with their bright colors and whimsical design.
I now have many H of H ornaments that I decorate my large tree with.
I'm not sure though whether or not I'll be putting it up this year...

Today I did finally get done decorating my small tree
that's in the family room area.
(I'll be showing it after Thanksgiving)!
I love this little House of Hatten family,
and it's a perfect match
for my own little family!
I also started collecting snowman cookie jars some years ago.
I love how their smiling faces always cheer me up and brighten my day!

Here they are on my buffet.
I have one other snowman cookie jar thats my most favorite one
but I'm saving it to show you at another time ;)
 This angel snowman cookie jar and mini candle holder is my 2nd favorite!
Aren't they adorable?!
I found them a few years ago at Big Lots.

These cookie jars above and below were T/S treasures!
So were the adorable
Fitz and Floyd Christmas bunny S&P shakers.

Well my friends it's only a few days till Thanksgiving day...

I hope you all have a very enjoyable one!

I have so much to be thankful for!
The friendships I've made here rank high on my thankful list!
You have all been so supportive, kind, and generous!

So thanks so much,
and many blessings to you all!
I'm also linking up with
Please go by and check it out!!

Big hugs, Sherri:)

P.S. Here's an update on my sister...

She had to have her biopsy postponed because she had a very low blood count.
Which apparently would make her vulnerable to infection or bleeding problems.
So it had to be rescheduled.
