Thanksgiving 2013

                                     Thanksgiving 2013
When dressing the table I kept the little ones in mind.
Gummy pumpkins and licorice cats 

Lots to be thankful pumpkin pie, for a start.
I'm thankful for this wonderful family with all that we share. 

Riley chattin' with Audrey
Yes, she stuck around today. She couldn't quite figure out what to make of Riley, though. She wasn't giving up her bed to anybody. They just stared at each other most of the time.

We had a long-time friend of the family join us this year. I have known Chels since she was a tot and look at the beauty she is today.
                       Allie and Chelsea

 " Cheers, everyone"
                  We were squeezed in like thankful sardines. 

I hope all my Canadian friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Does this mean I can start thinking Christmas now? YES!! Right after I take a nap.

hugs, Deb

  5. What a wonderful holiday dinner you had! Love the are so blessed! Looks like Audrey there is something to be thankful for!!

  6. Audrey's thinking, "please let me sleep...."

    Thanks for sharing the pics!

  7. I sure wish us Americans would have Thanksgiving in October. Would be so much easier on travel plans. And it's so pretty outside and still not so cold, instead of gray and dreary! Looks like you had a lovely Thanksgiving with family. Riley is getting to look like quite the little lady also. Lovely grandchildren.

  8. I wish our Thanksgiving was in October and then it wouldn't feel like the mad rush to get Christmas done. Happy Holiday--love the gathering, XOXO

  9. Your table is lovely and so are these photos. Yes, there IS much for which to be grateful. Sending Thanksgiving wishes to you!

  11. What a beautiful thanksgiving! Food, family, friends and felines. Doesn't get much better than that.
    Oops, sorry Kane, dear dogs too!!
    Love the licorise cats and where do you find all of those great napkins?

  12. How fun! Happy Thanksgiving to you all! The table was lovely and precious for the grandbabies!
