Well, Saturday we had another family feast! My goodness, the food at Thanksgiving is SO very rich, isn't it??
My mom and dad drove down from north Georgia and they brought a truckload of goodies, cornbread & biscuit dressing & gravy, sweet potato casserole with brown sugar and pecan topping, squash casserole, an amazing marshmallow/pineapple salad and a couple of pumpkin pies too! We roasted the turkey and made the traditional watergate salad, made tea and had soft rolls. Sounds like a true feast doesn't it? It was incredible and was so steeped in the tradition of my family.
Seems like that's one of the most wonderful things about Thanksgiving, the tradition of it all. The same foods, at the same time of year, no matter was has happened along the way, through the year, here we are, together, eating wonderful food as we do each and every year and just loving being a family.
I realize that there are so very many who don't have much family, if any....but tradition is always important to us, as human beings. To observe the holiday in our own special way, it may be ordering pizza in every year ~ no matter, just to enjoy and appreciate all that we have been given is the most important thing of all.
A few little clippings from my collection that I though you might enjoy ~ I've always loved the Victoria magazine calling cards page ~ and of course this is one of my favorites! Click to enlarge to look at the beautiful business cards that were featured. This is a clipping from an old Victoria ~
From another old magazine, look at how beautiful this box is decorated. I think it's just one of those paper mache boxes too! The box would truly be the gift, wouldn't it? Click photos to see and read the instructions ~
Lastly, I scanned in a wonderful old Christmas card that I have ~ never used either! Just print it out and fold it in half then in half again! Don't you just love the snowpeople?
