Happy Thanksgiving!

This year we were blessed to celebrate Thanksgiving with my dad's family.  Aunt Ruth and Uncle Tom flew in from Boston, Aunt Carol and Uncle Russ hosted an amazing feast, and we got to see Grandma and Grandpa for the first time since Grandpa went through his chemo treatment.  Plus, we had a lovely visit with Russ's mom, June, visiting from New Jersey.  I'd say it was a pretty darn good holiday -and I've got the pictures to prove it.

Aunt Ruth has the sweetest, easiest way about her.  She bring joy and a sense of calm wherever she goes and it's always wonderful getting to be with her.  We last got to visit when we drove up to Cape Cod this Spring and stayed at their lovely condo.  Here she and Bailey do some catching up.

And I'm happy to report that Wilder did not smash a single plate or glass.  Phew!

A little blurry, but I love this.  Brian and the babies.  My life; my treasures.

You can never run out of good stories with this crew.

*Sigh*  I love being with family!

I am so thankful to be close to my dad's family and can't wait to do our annual holiday baking in December.  Grandma Anne has 3 classic recipes:  Divinity, Fudge and Sugar Cookies.  It isn't Christmas if we're not able to make them together.  But with the hectic holiday schedule, if we don't get in our tradition together I will certainly continue it at our home and send the love on to friends and family.

In many ways, being with family is sweet.
We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are ringing in the holiday cheer as we kick off the Christmas season!
