Happy Thanksgiving

We had Thanksgiving dinner at Lisa and Craig's this year, with Janae, Lisa's niece's husband's sister. It was a wonderful dinner and as usual, Lisa's table was beautiful.

Janae made a yummy peanut butter cheesecake, I made green bean casserole, pecan pie, and frozen pink salad (recipe from my former mother-in-law). It was a lovely dinner, but all of us agreed it just felt weird that it was only us and no other extended family. We watched Christmas Vacation (a tradition) after dinner, then had pie. The girls cleaned up dinner with some help from C and then we headed home.

It was wonderful to be able to spend time together this year since C and I had Thanksgiving all alone last year - he had to work all day and L&C and S&W had gone to Cindy's cabin in Utah. We are so grateful that we live close enough to spend the holidays together. Christmas Eve is the next holiday we'll have together and it will be at our house. It will be our first time to use the new dining room furniture with company!
