|Poor Grandpa. He is as photogenic in this picture as I am.|
To that family who was selling a box of almost 20 brown glasses at a yard sale for $5.00 years ago but tried scaring me away from buying them by telling me I would regret it because they took up too much room: I don't.
In the bottom of the dining room hutch I found a box of fancy silverware that Gram had left here- and a turkey knife and fork! How perfectly perfect.
A Thanksgiving chalkboard tree takes mere minutes to fill. My children are very good at counting their blessings.
I cooked a turkey the day before and made broth with the bones and boiled the giblets. Then the stuffing and the gravy were ready long before the Thanksgiving Day turkey was done.
Pretty paper plates made it more elegant, not less...
A Thanksgiving playlist playing softly in the background is a great idea... if you actually remember to turn it on. ;-)
Toilet paper roll crackers were a highlight. I filled them with candy treats, a joke, and a little gift.
Grandpa's false mustache makes me happy. I knew he'd be a good sport about his gift.
We need more children to fill up the children's table!
A million leftover rolls make a mighty fine french toast casserole.
Moses fell asleep when we were praying for the food and slept through the whole meal.
(Next year, put the snack table outside of the kitchen- so no one congregates there. Thank you and amen.)
We sang the doxology before we feasted... praise God from whom all blessings flow indeed.
