The PERFECT holiday!

Sometime before I was born, my favorite tradition was set in stone. Thanksgiving at Grandma McKinnon's house ...


There are very few things that I love more than Thanksgiving. We gather with family ... and we eat! Can it get any simpler than that ... yet so divine?!

This year we had the opportunity to have two consecutive Thanksgiving feasts! First, at Grandma's and second at Vince & Carol ... the other Shaker's! It was all amazing.

Food - GLORIOUS FOOD.

I spent time with over sixty people yesterday, yet two little quotes from the day just can't escape this post.

Little Miss Reilly - "My shirt is annoying."



Tiffany - "Am I laughing a bit much?"




It was a great day and I can't wait until next year!

Tiff told me about Reilly telling you that her shirt was annoying. I can't wait to see her she seems like she has a lot of spunk! The weather was great in Florida. We went to church on Sunday (the church was on John Young Parkway). My best friend lives in Orlando is that the area that Matt is in? My friends husband is in the bishopric and they said that the missionaries come over all of the time.

Wow, I have not been to Grandma's house in the longest time. It looks the same! You guys are lucky you see her so often. Sounds like you had a fun day.

Karen,
Yes it was a wonderful Thanksgiving Day, I love this holiday too. So glad we could work the time so you and family could join us. Did you realize you forgot pictures of your mom and me in your slide show? I was there after a day of cooking, how about you Tina? Anyway, it was a wonderful day and I still love you, even for the over site.

Wow! My first mistake ever! Thanks for bringing it to my attention. Actually, if we go down the list of people that aren't in the slide show, there are quite a few. I think it's time for one of the mom's to get a blog!
