Nov 30: Sorry for the lack of posting the last couple of days. I thought I would be able to keep up while celebrating Thanksgiving – but Grandma had internet connection problems. No internet for three whole days – ack! So, I’m finishing writing and posting today and post dating them so they appear in order.
Today I am thankful for the rest of Papa’s family. As you can see, we all get along … usually. (Well, we are a normal family after all; there will always be squabbles at times).
When the planning for this year’s Thanksgiving dinner started, we were going to be a small crowd – only about 10-12. That may sound like a lot, but the house has been known to swell to 20+ people for holiday gatherings. Then suddenly it was the case that almost everyone was able to join us! Grandma was worried there wouldn’t be enough food. Turns out, the only item we could have used more of was the baked corn.
And can you believe I forgot to bring the camera?! This shot was taken by my sister-in-law because she’s going to use it for the cover photo of a couple of recipe books she put together for her two children. They’ll get them at Christmas. We were all contributors to the family recipes.
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving day!
