Craig bought this kind of evaporated milk for the pies…he loved the cow on the front of the can!

William ALWAYS lays like this right in front of the oven whenever I cook.

I started a tradition last year, of taking out our Christmas tree and decorating it for Thanksgiving with fall leaves and fall garland.

I also print pictures of Thanksgivings from the past and hang those pictures up on the tree.

I make a request to everyone that will be together with us on Thanksgiving day to think about what they are thankful for and send me the list ahead of time. Rosanna printed them on cards and we added them to decorate the Thanksgiving tree. We love reading what everyone is thankful to God for.

Come outside with me and I’ll show you what it looks like out there…

William is so thankful for Celery. He LOVES his celery!

The best part of our Thanksgiving is being together with our friends and family… I so much enjoyed sending messages and love to everyone and I loved hearing from you too. We missed Rebekah and Michael so much, but we are so thankful that we did have friends to be with…

Craig’s mom and stepdad stopped by to say hello before they went on with their Thanksgiving plans. I am holding a platter of appetizers that I just made. They are dates, stuffed with half of a pecan and then wrapped with a piece of bacon and then cooked in the oven long enough for the bacon to get crispy. So good!

We started on the Oreo cookie cake first, then we ate the turkey and other food…

    I’m so glad we got a chance to stop in that Thanksgiving Day, and thanks for adding our picture to all those other wonderful ones. I love the Personality Kitties–didn’t realize William was so dedicated to good nutrition and health. Don’t remember any of my cats liking celery. Yay, William, Smart Cat! The picture of Craig in front of the fireplace feels so warm. All of these pictures are such great memories.
