Each year for Thanksgiving we break out the table top decorations that mom gave Amanda about 5 years ago. Peter loves these figurines and played with them a lot last year. He didn’t remember them, so it was like opening new toys again this year.
But unlike last year, Penny Lane also showed a lot of interest in the Thanksgiving figurines. Though she seemed to like the miniature salt and pepper shakers better. They were more her size.
I am grateful that we had beautiful weather on Thanksgiving Day, even if today was cold and rainy. Yesterday we played out on the porch. Penny loves to play t-ball lately.
We’re still working on her form. And someone needs to tell her that even if it’s 80 degrees on Thanksgiving Day, it is still football season. Peter’s on top of that one.
Meanwhile, Mike and Amanda prepared our assignment for dinner: pies, stuffing, and rolls.
Thanksgiving has long been my favorite holiday. What’s not to like? A whole day of anticipating great food and good company. Although, I wish I could spend it with the rest of my family, too. Until then, I will feel close to them through mom’s delicious rolls.
