November and the first week of December proved to be a Michigan adventure involving friends, family, and of course- the Thanksgiving holiday!
Being able to watch "The Nutcracker" at the Detroit Opera House was a special treat! Thank you so much, L.J.! (You'll see a bit more of that later.)
When my son Steven calls and says "Come Fly With Me!", I'm out the door before I hang up the phone! Our flight in November was to Jackson, Mi. for breakfast- then some exploring by air!
|Exploring by air, it's amazing to see the number of lakes- they're everywhere!|
I hung with my friends in Canton- coming up with creative ideas for "bad weather" days!
|At the Library on a cold day. 7 year old Meghana has become quite the reader!|
|Red sun in the morning, sailors be warning.|

My granddaughter and Sanica are close to the same age, so I arranged a play date. They got along famously! Meghana was wonderful, sharing her Barbie cloths with them!
They are both hoping for more play dates to come!
I had the privilege of being invited to a very special Birthday party- India style!
The poor Birthday girl, Sanica (on the far right) was sick!
Thanksgiving was an extraordinary time; the company of family, delicious food, and small grandchildren to delight us all!
My visit to the Detroit Opera House to help with the matinee was a delightful experience!
During intermission a choir sang- and they sounded heavenly!
And Santa was there to hear the children's wishes, with my friend L.J. playing the part of Christmas Carol -relaying those wishes to the parents.
The first part of December saw me traveling a bit north! I am so honored to be part of my friend Gail Wyatt's celebration in Big Rapids, Mi., where she was honored for her work in the community!
My friend Gail's a calendar girl! She helped form this 18 month calendar as a fund raiser. (She's Ms. February!)
Gail and I laughed until I cried. Gail's doll seemed none to pleased with the mess I made in the guest room! Ha!
If laughter's the best medicine, my friend Gail and I will have a very healthy 2012!
This month was a delightful time of being surrounded with friends and family, where laughter was in abundance, and good food a plenty!
With December came an invitation to California, Holiday activities, a special Birthday celebration for son Steven, and of course- Christmas! Please join me tomorrow as I conclude this most amazing year!
