We had a quiet, peaceful Thanksgiving.
We are used to huge family get-togethers, surrounded by brothers and sisters, grandmas and grandpas, food, cousins, nieces, nephews and the like all running around and filling their plates.
So it's a bit strange for us to have a quiet day.
I spent some of the early morning baking bread. And I'm rather proud of how it turned out. Isn't it lovely?
My son helped a lot. He even made the banana cream pudding himself
- at 7 am!
The little girls helped with fruit salad and setting the table, etc.
We covered the table with paper, put out a cup of markers,
and they went to town- writing what they were thankful for.
Below are the entries:
My daughter and new son-in-law , enjoying their first Thanksgiving together!
Also, my youngest daughter (and Abby), who is usually stuck like glue to Steve when he's around.
They make a nice foursome, don't you think?
Thankfulness in all its simplicity.
Everyone waiting for dinner...and playing a little Rockband
And my bread.... Isn't it lovely?
