Enjoy the Break

I hope that you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving holiday! I hope you all have enjoyed the extra time without having a challenge to do! Many of you have said that you have previous pictures to add. Go ahead and post them for any topic.

I will again have a challenge up Monday morning for everyone! Merry Christmas!

Leftover Shells

I did a little bit of cooking for Thanksgiving this year - but not my typical amount. It was nice to spend time with family without the added pressure of cooking copious amounts of food. Instead, my extended family rented a beach house at Cape Hatteras.I took this picture Saturday morning when my girls, my husband and I went to the beach to search for shells. We found some perfectly whole shells -- but mostly were so battered by the surf that we only recovered interesting little bits -- little leftovers. Other beachcombers had gone through the piles of shells discarded by the ocean....but we still managed to find a few perfect, whole shells.
Just like our Thanksgiving meal, the leftovers were the best part. My girls were blissful and it was a absolutely beautiful day.
