OUR THANKSGIVING GATHERING


Thanksgiving 2014 turned out to be yet another glorious holiday in Texas!
The weather was absolutely gorgeous....a chill that warranted a light jacket and 
sunshine on our shoulders! The trees were at the peak of their color! 





 The darling and me.....I believe this is our 43rd Thanksgiving together! 
I was so happy to wear my beautiful apron that was handcrafted by 
Susan at My Mother's Apron Strings! 


Everyone's favorites.....The Appetizer Table



The Thanksgiving Pies......Pumpkin and Apple


The Best Cherry Pie Ever



Greg and Jenn


Nick and Cat


The gathering....the family minus Miss M and her family, and Rob....boo-hoo/boo-hoo
Enjoying champagne, wine, story telling, the firepit and some Cowboy football.


My precious grandchildren, now catching up to me in height


The greenbelt was absolutely stunning this day


Playing Frisbee


The Bobo



Papa and his boys......frowning over the Cowboys.....


The brothers....minus one.....and their big sis


Turkey carving


 Papa and his one and only, favorite granddaughter



We gather together......


It was our Happy Thanksgiving, 2014
Hope yours was blessed as well.

  1. Lovely to see you and your Darling!

    And what a beautiful family you have. And I know, another part, could not be with you, this year. They are a beautiful family too.

    And what a magnificent spread you put on! You Southern ladies know how to do a festive meal! :-)

    And still look unfazzzzzzzled yourself. An Art in itself.

    Hugs,
    Tessa~

  5. Dear Estelle, What a wonderful day, great food and thos pies were so pretty! It made me happy to see the family together! The grandchildren are getting so big! And I loved your apron! It looked so festive! I have been enjoying oranges and golds. Also, I loved the gray and lavender colors you posted on those cozy blankets. It has inspired me to crochet a new blanket!
