We had a very quiet sort of Thanksgiving. Well, as quiet as it gets with three little boys. We missed my grandparents, who were unable to travel up from California (love you Grandma and Grandpa!!); we missed my sister, Holly, and her family, who were spending time with the other side of their family. My dad just had open-heart surgery two weeks ago. So, we kept things simple.
My brother-in-law, Casey, made the turkey and delivered it to us before heading to his parents’ house. My sister, Shannon, made twice-baked potatoes and roasted green beans. Mom made bread dressing and candied yams. I brought hot rolls and our traditional jello salad. We set the table with my grandmother’s dishes.
I didn’t snap very many pictures.
It was dark and rainy. Not the best weather for our traditional walk after dinner. It’s a good thing Aunt Shan and Uncle Ben were such great sports and played games with the boys. Mastermind is the current favorite. When there is only one game board and only two people can play, a Mastermind iphone app comes in handy…
I am blessed. Yes, I certainly am.
