Thanksgiving reflections

 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.
 It's grand!

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

My family! 

And my bread.... Isn't it lovely?
