Happy Thanksgiving

The year has turned its circle,
The seasons come and go.
The harvest all is gathered in
And chilly north winds blow. 

Orchards have shared their treasures,
The fields, their yellow grain,
So open wide the doorway ---
Thanksgiving comes again! 

Happy Thanksgiving to my US friends!!!

Lots of pics to scrap, just have to get them printed. I think tmw morning calls for coffee and some blog hopping to catch up with everyone! Hope everyone stayed safe and for those who were in the path of Sandy, my thoughts and prayers are with you.
