Thanksgiving In Photos...

Just a few photographs of our Thanksgiving day this year.

Cranberries, orange juice, sugar and vanilla stewing. I love hearing the cranberries pop as they cook!

 They came together to become a perfect sweet side dish for dinner.

Each year, our dear friend, Richard takes our annual Christmas photo. It was a perfect day for posing outside this year. Of course, we took our Thanksgiving photos with him, too. 

He and Handsome have been friends since fourth grade, and he lives about four miles from us. He stood up in our wedding and he's family to both of us. We're so glad we could spend the afternoon and evening with him again.

We received calls from family members far away, and friends near and far. We shared weather reports and watched football. (Our team lost. sigh)

 Taking the turkey out of the oven is always a little like opening a gift.

The right temperature for the right amount of time, and this fourteen pound bird was perfect this year. There was enough meat, dressing and sides for our dinner; leftovers for Richard to take home; two dinners I delivered to a friend while the guys did cleanup; and still more for turkey sandwiches on the weekend!

Rick always brings dessert. This year, it was a beautiful pumpkin pie topped with pecans and caramel. It tasted as good as it looked (of course).

We are blessed indeed.
I hope all of you had a wonderful day, too.

I have been sewing the past few days (except yesterday), so I'll share my projects with you tomorrow. I never do "Black Friday", preferring the quiet of my studio to the craziness of the shops. In keeping with that, I'll be happily completing projects that will be shipped to customers early next week.

The perfect way to spend Thanksgiving with family and friends and enjoying blessings and being thankful. No crazy shopping for me either...I prefer the cozy quiet of my home and husband. Studio Sewing Dear...
