don't you just love our beautiful table?
Happy Thanksgiving from our home to yours!
This year I give thanks for my husband and son, our extended families combined that raised us to be the people we are, our home, good food and a wonderful harvest, all my friends that are dear to my heart.
From the 1600s to now celebrating a harvest of amazing food is a day I love to rally around.

the turkey getting basted! Yum!
It's okay that... sometimes holidays can be stressful when you have to travel between houses and leave early or arrive late. I don't do that, it's not really by choice, our two families live 1500 miles apart. Sometimes I am really grateful that we can just celebrate at one house and enjoy the whole day, but the down side is you don't see an entire side of the family for a holiday and that can be hard. Usually that's only a fleeting thought and I really enjoy the company that is present.
time for pie baking!
My favorite part of Thanksgiving, the annual Monopoly Marathon.
With root beer floats and pie all night, of course!
