A Very Odd Thanksgiving!
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because it seems to be the one most unaffected by blatant commercialism. (I won't even comment on starting "Black Friday" on Thanksgiving Day this year!) This year the kids (we have a son and a daughter) had other plans and I didn't have to cook a conventional Thanksgiving dinner.
So, we decided to get together this past Saturday (the Saturday after Thanksgiving Day) for a "Build Your Own Pizza" party. I made my "famous" homemade pizza dough & sauce, set out every topping that anyone even mentioned and let everyone make their own pizza.
The top photo is one of the pizzas and the bottom photo is of three of our four grandchildren - aren't they all beautiful? Our oldest granddaughter is just as gorgeous and is married and now lives in Maine. It would have been perfect if she'd been able to join us also.
We may have had a very unconventional holiday but it was a fun time and maybe something we'll do again in the future!
We're so very thankful for our wonderful family and I'm very thankful to those of you who visit my blog and have become my online family!
