Thanksgiving and Advent Tables!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! We had a blessed day! We spent the day at baby girl #2's inlaws and it was a deliciously wonderful day. So, I took a few Thanksgiving pictures and I changed a few things on my table from 2 weeks ago, to make room for an Advent table. The Advent colors don't really go with Christmas, but I think I made it work ok (green is a non-color according to the florist who did baby girl #2's wedding 3 years ago).

I love this Thanksgiving tree, don't you?

The food was delicious (that is my broccoli casserole in the foil wrapped Pampered Chef pan!)

Love those Pilgrim People salt and pepper shakers too!

I tried some different lighting shots- this is no flash.

 I found this nifty candleholder that I made into an Advent wreath.
 My little JR faced angel!
 Yes, I am a candle freak. My sister, Tammy turned me on to the wonderfulness of hurricane lamps, too. I chose all green candles to go against the pink and purple of the Advent.

This is with the light on no flash.

I love angels!

Have a blessed Advent season as we wait on the coming of the Christ child! Praise Be to God!

Be sure and check out Between Naps on the Porch, where Susan, our wonderful hostess, gathers us all to share our tables! Join in the fun!
