Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #179-109

With our Sponsor


I do hope everyone had a fun time with your families for Halloween and you didn't eat too much candy.
Now for our American followers you have Thanks Giving coming up on the 4th Thursday in November.   For someone that doesn't celebrate Thanks Giving it must be like having a practice run and  a lead up to Christmas.  It's hard enough preparing for Christmas without having Thanks Giving to prepare at this busy time of year.  When you wake up you'll  also find out the results of your Presidential Election.
Happy preparations everyone.
