Thanksgiving is almost here... one of my favorite holidays. Our Thanksgiving holidays are spent each year with my in-laws, out at the family "farm" in Alabama. It's a large southern gathering where the family all contributes towards the meal and there's a lot of hugs, laughter, and everything that comes with family spending time together.
This year I'm making cranberry sauce (this recipe is my favorite), sweet potato casserole and maybe a chocolate pie. Since my family moved here, they also spend Thanksgiving holiday with us and my in-laws and this year our special friends we have visiting will be joining us all too. I'm so thankful we can all be together on such a special day.
Anyway, obviously I won't be setting a Thanksgiving table this year, but I think that if I was, it might look something like this (smile). This fall I've loved all these neutral tones and warm textures.
I dug out my craft box to stamp a simple tag to hang on a pinecone (spray painted lightly with gold glitter). It's been a while since I've done a simple little craft and it was fun, even if it did take less than five minutes. The girls had even more fun making their own "name tags" too!
(This is my little craft caddy that I keep tucked away in a cabinet... Justus has been known to use the bakers twine as string for outdoor projects!)
This week we've been reading every Thanksgiving book we have... anticipating the upcoming holiday and the new memories made.
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving! What are your plans for the holiday?
