Thanksgiving at our home

The cooking is done. Our stomachs are full. The dishwasher is running (for the third time) and everyone is heading to bed. Another thanksgiving is now a memory..and a nice memory it is!


My favorite part of preparing for thanksgiving is setting the table..I have never been one to love cooking. But I do love to set the table!


My Dad , Mother, my sister, and my father in law were among our guests...along with the 6 of us.


Well, we can't forget the furry family...while getting ready I noticed the cats seated themselves at the table in the livingroom.


They were in luck because Janae bought a turkey breast just for the pets that we cooked along side our family turkey.


We had a really lovely dinner. I am very thankful for that.



I couldn't believe Papa ate the whole plate!


There were 10 people and 7 dogs at our thanksgiving celebration.


Everyone had a full tummy--even the cats got to have some turkey.

Now that thanksgiving is over you know what that means...time to decorate!

I hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving...

Thanks for visiting!

Hi Sandy,
I'm enjoying looking at the pictures of your lovely celebration. The animals have stolen my heart. I was just showing the pictures to my husband and of course, bragging on you.

hugs

I wish I could get my cats to just stay on the chairs. I have to set the table right before we eat and we eat well before their feeding time. Otherwise they'd be jumping all over us. You have your animals trained well!

Beautiful table setting and what a nice feast for you family. Your dogs always look so nice. I can;t believe them all. I keep thinking Mazi needs a friend. My husband doesn't think so. Your home looks super cozy and clean.

You set a beautiful table. Love those blue glasses. Glad you had a great Thanksgiving. I was coming by to see if you had any of your Christmas decorations up yet. I am in need of some inspiration!
