Our daughter Stef is a fabulous cook. (She did NOT get that from me!) Every year that she and Jesse have lived here she’s had Thanksgiving dinner at her house. This year it was even more appreciated than ever given that I’ve had to resort to reading recipes with a magnifying glass! (Though I did manage green bean casserole, and pumpkin and pecan pies… 😀 ) My sister Cindy and my b-i-l Greg (who is paralyzed from chemo treatments) came as well as did their daughter Holly. Though I don’t know where Holly was hiding when I was taking pictures.

For five hours we sat and talked and ate and drank wine. And my oldest grandson Ethan made his very first Oreo pie for dessert! Everyone was so relaxed (no talk of politics). And Greg, who is normally really quiet, was pretty darn chatty. It was SO good to see that. He laughed a lot tonight. It was good for everyone’s soul.

It was without doubt the best Thanksgiving we’ve ever had. And afterward we came home and watched our traditional Thanksgiving  movie — Christmas Vacation with Chevy Chase. We bought the VHS tape when it came out in 1990, and it’s been a Thanksgiving tradition ever since. 29 years! (Though Bran thinks we missed it two years…)

Anyway, thought I’d post some pictures since I seldom do that… You can see from the pictures there was more than ONE “turkey” at the dinner! LOL 😀

Brandon and Ethan. I told Bran he looked like Tina Turner and he
burst into a rendition of What’s Love Got To Do With It?
Did a fine job, too! LOL

Brandon, Liam, and Ethan all managed to find wigs in the toy box,
though Liam’s has a set of horns growing out of his.

My sister Cindy and my B-I-L Greg. He was supposed to have died three years ago. He rocked out at the Trans Siberian Orchestra (TSO) last night. 😀

Lydia and Bran playing with Bran’s phone. His nibs trying to stay awake!
