Our Thanksgiving, In Pictures

Our Thanksgiving, In Pictures

The day before Thanksgiving: Pies cooling on the table.  So pretty.

On Thanksgiving morning, John and Jack ran in the Turkey Trot.

Then our cousins stopped by to visit and pick up a pie.

The cooking on Thanksgiving is always a team effort … it’s more fun for everyone that way.  This year, Jack and Papa peeled the potatoes.

Then Chris mashed the potatoes and added the butter and milk.

Matt was in charge of carving the turkey.  (What a gorgeous bird!)

Matt also made the gravy, with my mom’s help.

I made the marinated broccoli salad, and then Jack helped me toss it.

Broccoli salad is such a colorful dish.  One of my favorites.

I also made the creamed spinach.  John’s favorite.

It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without cranberry sauce, so Mimi made a batch.

Then Mimi and Jack set the table.

After a morning of cooking, we were all eager to sit down and enjoy the food.

Then everyone was ready for a piece of pie, football, and a nap.  What a lovely Thanksgiving, possibly the best one yet.
