Saturday Sharing from the She-Shed Volume 40

Happy Saturday!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are gearing up for the next Holiday.

I had a virus this week, so I am a little behind schedule.

Have you done your shopping yet? I have not done much, so I need to get moving.

We have a weekend full of plans, so I am hoping for a miracle that I will feel better and will be able to enjoy a few of the events we have planned.

Thanksgiving Adventures

Our eldest son, along with his family, as well as my sister and her husband, arrived on Wednesday, kicking off the adventures.

On Thanksgiving we had a gathering of 18 people. It was an absolute delight to have all five of our granddaughters under one roof. I even captured a photo featuring four of them, though the youngest was sleeping.

I grew up in a household surrounded by sisters, Robin, my sister on the left, and Linda, my sister on the right. I am used to having sisters, so being surrounded by girls is par for the course. We cherish these moments when we can come together during the holidays.

We are looking forward to seeing our one and only grandson visiting in December.

We kept very busy, visiting a bubble exhibit, shopping, and seeing the night lights at the zoo.

The day after Thanksgiving, my husband made the best sliders!

We used Hawaiian rolls, leftover turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and Havarti cheese.

Glaze the top of the Hawaiian rolls with butter and sprinkle with fresh herbs.

Preheat oven at 350 degrees.

Wrap in foil and bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.

Trust me, they were delicious.

What’s Happening at WM Design House

The progress with the house painting is fantastic, and we’re absolutely thrilled with the Benjamin Moore color, Blue Note.

Today, they’ve completed painting the garage and started work on the back house. It’s exciting to see everything taking shape.

We anticipate that it won’t be much longer before the entire house is beautifully finished.

Gingerbread Decorations

I did not forget about the printables I promised you. I will be posting them on Thursday, so don’t forget the code is WMFREE to access them in my free printable library. I also created the cutest gift tags to go with them.

In addition, I am posting a really fun DIY air-dry clay ornament post on Tuesday. I made gingerbread houses, gingerbread men and so much more, so be sure to stop by.
