Thankful

Thanksgiving wasn't anything different than any other year, but I loved it just the same. There's really just a great feeling in the air when it's a holiday. As a family we saw "Life of Pi", then finished preparing dinner, ate (a lot), then watched another movie. Because that's what you do on Thanksgiving.

I set the table this year, and it was extra special because I was able to use my Great Grandmother's China and Crystal.

We didn't have a center piece, so I pulled on my Sorel boots and went exploring for twigs and natural things, outside.

The rolls are my favorite part, but seem to be the hardest to make...

One of my other favorite parts, would be the homemade grape juice! It's amazingly delicious.

There's also the sparkling cider, of course.

Oh my goodness. I'm so glad our Thanksgiving and Christmas meals are the same...

I love your table set up! So pretty.

I'm with you. I want Thanksgiving and Christmas meals to be the same but it doesn't happen as Thanksgiving is with my family and Christmas is with my inlaws.

Happy Sunday!

Oh Gentri, it's so beautiful! The dishes and things are just lovely. And the pictures you took of everything turned out nice too--I love the lighting : ] I also really love that your table is square--really cool. AND you make homemade grape juice?! What the heck?! Awesome!! Was this in Oregon or Utah?

And a huge congrats on the Tv spot!! I hope that brought in a lot of business for all of you! And can I just say your voice is higher than I thought it would be? Really. It definitely works with you, but for some reason I always read your blog in my mind with your voice--except that voice is deeper. I dunno. Haha! But you move pretty much the way I would have expected. (Is it weird that I thought of that? haha)
