A look back at Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving day was beautiful! It started out a bit frosty out.....
Then slowly the sun warmed things up.....
to a nice November glow.
Preparations for Thanksgiving started the day before with pie making....
one apple two pumpkin.
If it were not for Dave's help, I would have been more exhausted than I was! He did a marathon of dishes all day!!
Caitlin made two appetizers, stuffed mushrooms with pecans, and a very yummy batch of humus.
Turkey is almost done....
Table is set....
food plated up...
Pierre's cousin, Marlene came to celebrate.
Time for pie!

A spirited conversation....
and a little bit of hamming it up.

I sure hope everyone had a very Happy Thanksgiving and enjoyed their day with family or friends.


  1. cabages!!! I love the outdoor pictures!

  2. PRETTY! Look I put a picture of the turkey after, go look!

  3. I took the pictures of dad on your camera! I only have one of you on mine! I didn't use mine that much anyway.

  4. Looks like a wonderful time was had by all. Food looks great too!

    Have a great weekend!

  5. your holiday looks like it was as beautiful as always. i love how you have your family help out in the kitchen and your table looked gorgeous. the food looks delicious, too. enjoy your weekend!

  6. Your table and food always look so pretty and love-filled. Glad you had a good holiday!


  7. Your photos are beautifully shot -- good work -- that lighting can be very tricky! I love your table setting, too, I'm going to keep my eye out for gold chargers for next year.

  8. Looks like your family had a lovely Thanksgiving. Your photos are so nice--you have a real knack for it. Your girls are so cute!

  9. sounds like you had a wonderful thanksgiving. the appetizers sound delicious. i now realize we always make hummus for holidays and we forgot to this year. the mushroom sound good. i wish my family were not so afraid of them.

  10. WOW your pumpkin pie turned out really good...mine, not so much! I'm not sure what happened, but my apple pie was "the bomb," as my sister said, so I guess it all worked out! I'm glad you had a nice Thanksgiving!!
