thanksgiving week

We had such a wonderful week at Mimi and Nonno's. We had so much to be thankful for - playing with new toys with Nonno, reading new books with Mimi, watching tractor shows on TV with Dada, bouncing with Uncle Michael on huge bouncy ball.

And did I mention Thanksgiving dinner? Butternut squash-from-Mimi's-garden soup to start, Nonno's delicious brined-overnight turkey, mashed potatoes, cornbread & pecan stuffing (too sweet - don't use that recipe again), Gwyn's cheddar-chive biscuits, Kim's cranberry relish, green beans and almonds, Grammy's coleslaw...and yummy lemon chiffon tart, squash pies, and Gwyn's mom's apple pie with whipped cream AND ice cream. Dreamy.

And you, at the head of the table:

Happy Thanksgiving, 2008!
