We had a very lovely *Thanksgiving*. We stayed true to our family traditions and only veered slightly. We went sans tablecloth (loved it, no last minute ironing) and because I missed out on making sugar cookies for Halloween I had to make some for Thanksgiving. I added our guests names to turkey cookies and had intended them to be place-markers, but my icing script needs some work so I saved them for the dessert table. We also made mini turkeys, fall leaves and flowers with the extra cookie dough. This year's centerpiece was my favorite from last few years. It consisted of four flower bunches from our local grocery store (salmon colored roses, orange and red berries & greenery) with some red leaves from our yard and peasant feathers added in to complete the look.
Little O had his first meal and year ago last Thanksgiving and he surely enjoyed his Thanksgiving meal again this year! In this picture he looks so much like my sister as a baby.
