A quiet day of thanks

Subdued. That's how Thanksgiving was this year. After last year's big family gathering, our last with Grandma Shelby, we kept things quiet this year. Mama and Daddy came to the mountain for a quick trip. Sister Konnie and her husband, Jon Boy, hosted the crew, and friends drove in from the big city to join us in our low-key day of thanks.

We had a beautiful view of the Cascades. 

Sister Konnie and Jon Boy cooked a feast. 

I baked that Pecan Pie again. And even Miss Kym who professes to dislike pecan pie, liked this one. 

Crafty sister Konnie made a paper turkey for all of us to add our feathers of thanks.

I thought about all the things I am thankful for: family, friends, health, work. But these are things I'm thankful for every year. This year, I was thankful for something new.

And to build suspense, I'm going to make you come back here tomorrow to read all about it. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. 


  1. What a gorgeous view. And you dirty turkey leaving us in the lurch like that. ;-)

  2. I really am full of suspense now!
