5 thing Friday - end of marching season, cranberries, thrift and prep, Monopoly, graduation

 I'm glad marching season is over...it will be good for Bubbie to concentrate more on his classes and get some stuff done for Scouts.
But going to my last game before the surgery was bittersweet - the show was so darn good this year.  I am already making a list of all the things I will not miss out on this time next year...
 I read on someone's blog where they did the cranberry sauce in the crock pot and it intrigued me...
 
 ...so I tried it, and you know what?  It worked out just fine.  I might do it that way every year from now on.  Maybe use a touch less liquid, though, so I don't have to cook it longer.  This is my big crock pot because Hubby bought the giant bag!
 Simple tablescape using what I could easily reach and already had.  There is Fall potpourri and some gold painted pinecones in a wooden bowl with a candle in a vase from the Dollar Store.  I've had those S&P shakers since right after I got married.  The burlap is a remnant over a thrift store tablecloth.
 The kitchen sat quiet and idle while Bubbie and I waited for the Turkey Trotters to return.  Everyone pitched in to help prepare the house and the meal - that was so appreciated.
 So we played cards and I cracked open a bottle of the anniversary wine from Flat Creek. {My birthday flowers are still alive! I combined the roses from Hubby with the mixed bouquet from a friend.}
We taught Hubby how to play Monopoly.  He was Daddy Warbucks and won, much to The Girl's dismay.
Big things are happening in December...

I love a simple table setting. Always good to have all the kids home. Congrats to your daughter. My daughter's "Big" is graduating in accounting as well.
