This is gonna be a long one. First off, I want to thank Danielle for the new blog look. Didn't she do a fabulous job? Right now she is donating $5.00 for every blog she designs to Souls for Soles. If you have been thinking about a blog makeover, now is the perfect time to do it! She also re-did my friend DeAnn's blog, which turned out beautiful too.
On to the pictures. The first are from Thanksgiving Day. My brother-in-law cooked up a fantastic meal, as usual.
Joe anxiously awaiting turkey
Gizmo is hoping for some turkey of her own
Ditto for Buster
Gracie wanted to be in the picture too. I swear we did spend time with my nephew too. He just wasn't interested in the camera :)
This is what constitutes holiday decor in one the store windows in downtown Burlingame. Nice. Joe wanted to know if we could do something like that at our house. I said No.
On Saturday night Lisa got a babysitter and we went into the city to check out the tree at Union Square. The weather was beautiful. Not too cold!
Tree in Union Square
We stopped in here for a drink and to admire the view. It is on the 21st floor and we could see all of the city from up there. Beautiful!
Union Square from the Starlight Lounge. Lisa has much better pics than I do. I'll have to get them from her since she has given up blogging :(

I love the window displays
We thought these were funny. Joe has one of these little men but his is wood colored.
Every year Macy's teams up with the SPCA and has animals for adoption in their front windows. The windows are decorated like little houses, with couches and everything and the animals play in there and people can adopt them. So cute! I didn't get any pictures of the animals because there were too many people but I did get this one of one of the surrounding windows that I thought was sooooo cute.
It was a wonderful Thanksgiving! Now I must find the energy to gear up for Christmas. I'm having a hard time doing that this year. Some years are like that for me. Joe said he will help me put up the tree tomorrow.
