Grandma loved having so many children, grandchildren and greats around for the day. She made all the dishes she is famous for. And I'm quite certain she loved every last second she spent planning and cooking.
Back at Dad and Mom's after the big meal we had a Seahawks game to watch. Everyone changed out of dress clothes and into Seattle gear.
We had a lot of fun times in the days following Thanksgiving. The only other time I got my camera out was the day we made wreathes. Mom and Dad's back yard is chalk full of greens--including holly--it was the perfect place for wreathe making. Thankfully, a Michael's craft store has opened about five minutes away from their house as well. After I got all the kids to bed late Thanksgiving evening I ran to the store to take advantage of holiday deals and grab all the forms, wire and decor we might need.
