Busy Weekend

 The weekend was very busy with a craft show and two ballgames in one day with my middle grandson. They played in a tournament. The coach wanted them to get their feet wet as the saying goes.
    My craft show was the one I have done with my oldest grandson for the last 4-5 years. People could not believe that he made his wooden animal puzzles. He started when he was ten. I would love to have his wooden jewelry box that is made out of cherry and maple. The ribbon that is made on top of the box is a maple and cherry stripe. I would like to try them in my etsy shop, but he won't say yes or no. We both made more then expenses which made me happy and I spent the day with him.
    We got back in time to go to the basketball game. I just didn't realize what was involved in the basketball tournament. We started at one location and after winning had to go to another location. I didn't go on Friday night because I would have never made it up the next morning. They won 1 game out of three. They have a decision to make whether they want to play in two leagues both on Saturday. It would take up most of the day. 
    Have you made your Thanksgiving plans yet? I am going to go to my son's outside of town. My contribution will be the crescent rolls. I don't know what the rest of the menu will be, but we always have more food then we can eat. I asked dad if he wanted me to bring him some and he said no. He said he ate to much at the family Thanksgiving Dinner at the nursing home. 
    If you travel, please be safe. Two senior boys from my grandson's high school lost their lives in a drowning accident. They were hunting and drowned in a farm pond. Nobody will ever know exactly what happen, but it was a shock for all. Even those of us who didn't know the boys can feel the lost. My grandson knows both of them. They were going to have counselors at the high school today and tomorrow for those to talk with about the accident. It is always hits harder when it is a child regardless of age. 
    My goal for after the holidays is to blog more often. I miss being able to spend the time visiting I would like to do. I will make this short. I have one more craft show to do with my daughter-in-law. She had planned on going to the last one, but instead needed to take care of the basketball boy. 
    Take care and have a Happy Thanksgiving.

Glad you had a great day at the craft show. Sorry to hear about your grandson's friends. Life is so short! Hope you and yours have a great Thanksgiving. Stay warm!

Sounds like fun doing a show with your grandson. Glad that you did well.
I had an open house for my Origami Owl and only one person came. It was so icy out that I told people to not take a chance.
Have a nice Thanksgiving. I love it that we don't have to take much. I will take gluten free rolls in the package, hah. I also am taking a pecan pie that I bought at the Honey Baked Ham store and making a gluten free pumpkin pie. There will only be 4 adults. Two have Celiac and on eis a vegetarian. For most this would be a boring dinner, hah.
Have fun and stay safe.

Hello Shirley,
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with your family - crescent rolls sound yummy!
So glad to hear you did well at the craft sale, and hope the upcoming one is equally as good for you - such a lot of work, and so glad for you that you get good results.
Take care, and hugs

Sounds like a wonderful day with your grandson, Shirley. So sad about the deaths of those two boys - how awful for all who knew them.
