Hi! I’ve been on a posting hiatus because I’m having too much fun with crafties. I wanted to take a minute to share my Thanksgiving holiday though because I’m super thankful for these special moments in life when we can enjoy the company of loved ones in lovely environments. This year was the first year my husband’s family came to celebrate in my hometown. It was also the first year I got to be fully in charge of the tablescape and the first year we set up Thanksgiving lunch in the backyard!
As usual my Dad cooked all the things — pancit, pasta, scalloped potatoes, fried chicken, Spanish rice, corn, lemon shrimp, pork and gravy. Is your mouth salivating yet? The in-laws brought pork buns and desserts, and my niece and nephews made pie! And if that wasn’t enough food, we picked some treats from the tree — pomelo, my fave!
My Mom and I decorated the tables with freshly cut bay leaf twigs and grapefruit (from the garden!), and a few decorative pumpkins. The trees got a makeover, too. Honeycomb ornaments and a “Thankful” sign made for some fun Thanksgiving family portraits. We also had a thankful tree and asked everyone to write down what they were thankful for on a leaf.
I hope you all had a blessed Thanksgiving!
