Boo-tiful Day

HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all my fellow Canadians!

What a week this has been.....boy! My son and his new wife are now pretty much moved out of my house and settled into their new place; just a few things of my son's left here in the basement to trip over still. It is coming along though. The best part? His room is becoming my new scrapping studio!!!! My fabulous hubby is working on a few things in there and then I can set it up and move into it! I am so excited!
Today is turkey day here in Canada and I am cooking the big dinner for my family, complete with turnips,brussel sprouts, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy and of course, PIE. What is Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie, apple pie and lots of whipped cream? I have to have both as my son only eats pumpkin pie and my daughter won't even look at it if it isn't apple pie. Atleast now, I will eat apple as I use to have to make a blueberry pie as well. At Christmas, I save myself the headache by just making Death By Chocolate; pie is a Thanksgiving tradition though.

Anyway, now that I have prattled on long enough, (thats not what you stopped by for), here is my card for this week's "Boo" challenge at One Stitch At A Time.
