Thanksgiving 2013

The numbers for Thanksgiving ebb and flow and this year it was a smaller group which is fine. We were small but mighty. Brother Bob came up from Corpus Christi and my Dad Gramps flew down from Idaho. We convened at Nana’s house just a few miles away for a meal of great food and fellowship.

I was the official event photographer. I work really cheap. 


Heather and her mother Nana made the magic happen. My goodness we had a lot of food. I smoked a turkey, Nana provided a smoked ham and a hen, we had noodles, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, dressing, purple hull peas, cranberry sauce, rolls,  and on and on. Oh yes, the deserts we had pumpkin pie, pumpkin bars, and bread pudding, and oh yes, asparagus.

Yep, we got plenty of leftovers. 


These two mutts didn’t get to go to Nana’s house. 


This one did, Rascal was pretty proud of himself. The other two were a little growly toward him when we got back home.

We are really blessed to be able to be together. Not everybody is so fortunate.


And of course, if you haven’t heard before, the agents of everything good in the universe, the Dallas Cowboys defeated the godless heathen Oakland Raiders.


Outside the stadium Tom was standing a little taller, and it looked he was almost smiling. 

So all is right with the world.

    Looks, and sounds, a little like our Christmas Day fare. Not a clue what your bread pudding is but we have bread sauce as a “condiment” with the turkey.

    I’m with your other reader, size definitely doesn’t count when it comes to family.

    Like your way of photographing people and food by the way.

    Awesome! What a beautiful table! Looks great–all those wonderful people.

    The pups–at first your duo looked to me like mine. Had to do a double-take!

    Congratulations on your team’s winning. You deserve a fabulous day like that.

    hee hee… No Swanson TV Turkey Dinners this year?!

    «Louis» must be displaying a suicidal tendency in writing this: living as he does near Oakland, he can attest to the accuracy of your description of the Oakland Raiders…
