We have been through so many weather changes. Warm lovely outside then we got the extreme cold that nobody wanted to go outside. Now we are back to regular temperatures, but people are dealing with sore throats and colds. Tis the season.

Happy Birthday to all who celebrated their day this past week. Big balloons go out to Alazandra Navarrete, who celebrated her day Nov. 18; Harvey Proctor, Nov. 19; Arianna Bonner, Maria DaSilva, Nov. 21; Gustavo Sousa, Nov. 23; Daniel Serpa, Nov. 24; Griffin Craig, Nov. 25; Jack Oteri, Nov. 26; Eloah Zotti, Nov. 27; Ava Townes, Nov. 28; and to Hugo Callen, and Felype DaSilva who celebrated their day Nov. 29.

I have to say Happy Anniversary to my brother and sister in law Frank and Linda Noble who will be celebrating their 55th wedding anniversary Nov. 30.

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. It was a cold day but from what I have heard around me it was a great day for many. I was at the Weagle Dolby home. Linley and Dave are very gracious hosts and we all enjoyed their little son Owen who kept us entertained playing with his cousins and sliding down his big slide.

Dave smoked a turkey that was amazing and of course a regular turkey. We all gathered around the table and when Gary Weagle was through with giving grace, Andrew asked if he could say something. He then proceeded to thank all the turkeys that gave up their lives so we could enjoy Thanksgiving. This is another one for the memory books.

Now it is on to Christmas. The wreaths and trees are a hot commodity at the nursery. Town is getting festive and ready for Christmas in Edgartown in a couple of weeks.

Give your child the gift of Christmas by letting them journey through the Advent Season with the Federated Church, 45 South Summer Street, Edgartown. This four week exploration is for K-8 children, and is held during the 10:30 a.m. Sunday worship, in the Federated Church Parish House. The program begins on Dec. 2nd, with The Gift of Hope, the story of the Wise Men. For more information call 508-627-4421, or email officefederatedchurchmv@gmail.com.

Have a great week and keep the home candles burning.
