Welcome! -Well here in the USA the Thanksgiving holiday has now come and gone.
We had a very small and somewhat quiet Thanksgiving. Most of my family spends the holiday with either their spouses family or just celebrates on their own. So it was just Mike, myself and our daughter Greta and her two girls, Coleen and Joelle. Greta's boyfriend had to work so he wasn't able to join us this year.
Greta did most of the cooking and prepared some great food. She made a sausage/vegetable stuffing, green beans almondine, mashed potatoes and gravy. We did the turkey and I made some cranberry/orange sauce and an Apple Pie. I bought a Pumpkin pie (mainly for hubby) since I don't like cooked pumpkin pie.
Here is the food and company shots.
One of these days I'm going to have to remember to have someone take my picture as I was the one taking these and never seem to get into the family photos.
Of course after Thanksgiving we have a bit of a tradition of getting the outside Christmas lights up as soon as possible. This year ours went up a few days before the holiday but didn't get turned on until after Thanksgiving.
We got one new elf and also moved my mom's Nativity set into our yard so that our daughters family could put up what they wanted in their yard (which use to be my mom's place). They still have to get their house lights up but yesterday Mike & Coleen worked very hard to get the yard decorations set out. Everything looks very festive now.
I spent the day getting down the holiday glasses, doing dishes, some laundry and puttering around here and there.
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and are looking forward to Christmas and the holiday season to come.
Thanks for stopping by.
