We gathered around our little table and dined on traditional Thanksgiving dishes.
Our grand girl had made the place-mats for a previous Thanksgiving and this year she brought us a turkey centerpiece she'd created.
It was a wonderful twenty four hours filled with family members, food, fun, lots of dirty dishes , a sleep over and ending this morning with the annual trip to the tree farm to cut the trees we tagged a month ago.
The days prior to hosting the feast are filled with many "to dos" on what seems like an endless list. While it's a great deal of work to get ready for the gathering, it's also a huge honor to do so. It's wonderful when everyone has their food on their plates and we are gathered around the table. . . just celebrating the moment and the family and the many blessings that have come our way.
Here are a couple of new turkey pictures that were made for us and of course the great turkey centerpiece. Also, the plate represents my favorite leftovers. . . my MIL's cranberry sauce, my mom's cranberry-jello salad, my DIL's dressing, my sweet potatoes and awesome homemade rolls I bought at church last Sunday (cuz I'm a terrible maker of yeast rolls).
THE STONE RABBIT wanted me to tell you that his favorite leftover is the pumpkin cake roll that I almost always make. In fact, shortly after I took this picture he was already enjoying another slice of that fine concoction!
We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, too! I am sure if you visit Beverly's blog, HOW SWEET THE SOUND, you will find lots of others who also have Thanksgiving fun to share with you!
Happy PINK Saturday!!
