A Happy Thanksgiving 2011

I was thankful all day.  

The turkey went in on time.  I whiled away the hours it baked making a bag from the sweater I felted yesterday:

I love the color!  Inside are two big pockets and a loop around the middle flower keeps it closed.

I wore traditional Thanksgiving colors 


And we feasted at Mom's house!

...who also baked pies yesterday!  

Lest you suspect we only had turkey and pie I will give your our menu.  It's very traditional.

Roast Turkey w/cranberry sauce
Spiral Ham
Mashed Potatoes & gravy
Sweet Potato Caserole
Sage & Apple Dressing
Broccoli w/cheese sauce
Relishes Tray w/olives, veggies & dip
Deviled Eggs
Squash Soup
Rolls & Butter
Sangria or Ginger Ale
Apple, Pumpkin or Chocolate Pie
Orange cake frosted with chocolate

 Uncle Bob still managed to have room for dessert after a full plate!  Go UB!  Looking pretty good with his 89th birthday just on the horizon

As with all family gatherings, a four generation photo has be taken before the young family must leave to visit other family groups...

And then the cleanup......
Working with Mom and my sisters was like old times.   Washing, drying the good china.  Sorting over leftovers to take home and fun talking.  We didn't break into song though.  I think that is a first.  

Now...  It's full blown Christmas!

The Mr. was covered in glory when he came in with these beauties yesterday!


Happy Thanksgiving! It looks like you had fun, but I always find the worst part is the clean up!
The felted bag looks great! Your post makes me hungry for pie :).

Thanksgiving is a time for family and food, the company the reason we love the day, the food a great reason to converse together. Our meal was not quite as large, however the sentiments the same!
