Hello friends,Sorry I'm so late getting this post out,I've just been incredibly busy.We had a very nice and quiet Thanksgiving.For the past couple of years it's just been us.The grandparents used to come,but they say it's too cold for their old!

So we just did our usual starting off with making a lot of phone calls wishing relatives a Happy Thanksgiving and talking to our son who's in Georgia.

Next we sat down while waiting for the turkey to get done and watched some specials we always watch.
The first is The Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.

                                 and The Macy's parade.

Then we ate our Thanksgiving dinner.We always have turkey and all the trimmings.
Mashed potatoes and gravy,stuffing,green bean casserole,sweet potatoes,pistachio salad (Ariel's favorite),cranberry sauce,rolls,deviled eggs,sparkling cider and usually four or five kinds of pies.

                MMMM turkey just out of the oven.
               Sandwiches the next day are our fav!!!

         After that we sat down and watched some more of our traditional shows.
 The Ultimate gift is our absolute favorite movies to    watch for Thanksgiving.    
 If you've never seen it,it's a wonderful movie that really shows you what is important in life.A good reminder especially this time of year.

Then we ate pie as we watched the musical Newsies I personally love musicals my kids not so much,well they like some better than others and The Disney Holiday Spectacular,which I thought was way better than the Macy's parade.
It was a mellow,yet very enjoyable day.I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
