Thanksgiving Memories 2005


Isn't it beautiful? One of our family traditions is that Dad makes the turkey and his fabulous wild rice and sausage stuffing. This year he made two--one for dinner and one for leftovers.


Dad wasn't the only one in the kitchen. My Mom was bustling around so much, that it was only when she sat down to check her e-mail (and my blog) that I was able to snap this picture.


Just a glimpse of our boys eyeing our Thanksgiving Feast. Everything that was suggested made it onto the menu--turkey, stuffing, mashed potatos, gravy, green peas, ginger carrots, cauliflower with cheese, mushrooms, cranberry relish, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, corn on the cob. . .


For dessert, we had pumpkin pie, pecan pie, gingerbread, oatmeal scotchies (made by J9) and ambrosia.


Not everyone was eating turkey. . .

Dad and I were trying to tally up which Thanksgivings we've been together. I think we've spent five of them with my folks, in the ten years we've been married. One of the most momentous ones was 2001--just a few days before we flew over to Ukraine.

More pictures.

Love the pics. I am so glad you are having such a delightful reunion. (Hand someone else the camera before the weekend is over so we can see YOU!) I wish I could stop by! :-D

Thanks for the kinds words, everyone. I'm having such a wonderful time with my family here. *grin*

Kim, yup, my sis. *grin* She has a new blog: http://www.mountainmamagoat.blogspot.com .

Mrs. Happy, great aren't they? Durable, goes well with just about any decor, great for mix and matching.

My sis did take some photos, but it seems like I was looking the wrong way or blinking or whatever. This is my blog. I'm not putting up anything of me that is unflattering. *g*

Too much fun!

and your boys are adorable! (they probley wouldn't like it if they knew I said that, if they are like my son he doesn't like to be "cute" anymore, even though he is only 4, but they really are!)

Lovely! Beautiful family, and beautiful to see you enjoying each other. Here's another vote for a pic of tulipgirl too!

Happy day!

Good to see all your little "injuns" enjoying themselves, like the little pilgrims they are. You, like me, have a lot to be thankful for.

Your parents are so young! Great photos. Thanks for posting them. That bottom picture is a classic - I did that for 6 1/2 years straight!
