Our Thanksgiving this year is not the traditional Norman Rockwell one.
Growing up, my mother would always put the whole turkey on the table.
Dad would carve it.
It is tradition and Allen and I continued that tradition.
Here is the turkey my mother made for us another year.
She always decorates it so nice!
This year is a little different.
With Mom's fall, it was going to be too much to do the turkey.
And Mindy was working on Thanksgiving Day.
So on Thanksgiving Day Mom invited us to the Home for a cafeteria-style meal.
As we walked the halls of the Home, a comment was made that this would be a great place to find names for new babies. The old names seem to be coming in vogue, don't they? How about....
We will be celebrating our family Thanksgiving Day on Saturday.
We decided not to do the traditional turkey/mashed potato.
We are going to do bbq meatballs instead. But we WILL do pies!!
Apple, pumpkin and pecan!
