Happy Thanksgiving

We had a wonderful and very tiring Thanksgiving here in Minnesota. The weather was a balmy 40 degrees and no snow in sight. We ate a good breakfast and watched the NYC Macy's parade (wishing we could visit there this Christmas season). After that is was crunch time, or clean up time that is. "Take that upstairs to my room!" is a phrase I repeat often when company is coming over. This time was pretty good, only a few things on my bed as I was crawling in.

We had two families over and ate a traditional thanksgiving meal... plus homemade perogies! They were awesome and a good appetizer too when the turkey was still in the oven. It was great to spend the day with good friends especially when family is so far away. Emma made her "famous" cranberry sauce and Abby made her newly "famous" apple pie.

All the kids played Yahtzee

And had a candle light dinner

This is the table runner I made this year the day after, notice the candles are much shorter. God is good.
