How was your Thanksgiving? We had a great time with our parents, our children, and grandchildren over to our house for a feast. It was nice to have everyone together, and we were able to take a family photo.
Here is our oldest daughter and her family,
both of our parents,
and Fr. Don, a friend of the family.
We set up the food and beverages up out in the garage, and serve buffet style. You could see more about how we organize and use our garage here.
We really like keeping everything out in the garage, it keeps our house nice and neat. If it is cold enough we leave the food out overnight and it is easy to go and fill a plate with leftovers to reheat in the toaster oven. (We don’t use a microwave.) Not to mention cleanup means just covering all the food.
This is a Taffy Apple Salad. (A family favorite.)
Salad, and several other delicious dishes.
We added some fall decorations.
We all ate at tables throughout the main floor.
Everyone was stuffed and had a great day!
We are thankful for our family!

Who did you spend the day with?
Did you do any Black Friday shopping? (This is the first year in a long time I stayed home.)
