Thanksgiving Week

And....we're live! Hooray! Back in business! First things first: Thanksgiving. A belated post on one of my all-time favorite holidays.

It was so nice to have my parents here for the week. My younger brother Joe joined us on Wednesday. We spent a lot of time resting, shopping, visiting the tree fort, and enjoying each other's company. For Thanksgiving dinner, we hosted at our place (a tradition!) with everyone contributing to the meal. In attendance: my mom and dad, brother Joe, Ben's mom and dad, sister Jennie, Eskedar & Zenebe (family friends), plus us four. It was perfectly lovely!

my little carnivores love them some turkey legs:

A beautiful, wonderful, glorious day! Thankful for sunshine, family, friends and more than enough food for our bellies.

What a beautiful table! I have never hosted Thanksgiving -- it is so much work. But you pulled it off beautifully!
