I loved having Thanksgiving at my house! Mama and I had so much fun cooking together. The meal was good and the leftovers are rapidly being consumed. I’m going to make stock today with the turkey carcass and we’ll have turkey noodle soup tonight.
It was so nice to have our small family together for the day. We were worried about Mr. SP’s dad, but he survived the day. I know that it was sad for him.
Mama brought her antique carving set with her. She inherited this from one of my grandmother’s cousins and guesses that it is at least one hundred years old. The knife is super sharp. I love the detail on the handle and on the ends. We always use this set at Thanksgiving.
I decided to serve the food buffet style. I had planned to pass the dishes, but some of them were really hot, so this was was easier.
Mama waits her turn. Isn’t she young looking? She’s 63 and single if anyone knows of an eligible nice man. (She will kill me if she sees that I typed that!!)
I love how Reese popped into this picture!
Mr. SP and his dad:
Reese loves to play with my old Barbies and her favorite activity is to have a Barbie fashion show. Doesn’t every family have a Barbie fashion show at the Thanksgiving table?? If you are a child of the 70’s, then you might remember some of these Barbies or their outfits.
Mama and Reese prepare their Barbies for judging:
Do your remember Ballerina Barbie?
Rich eyes Barbie’s negligee…It was a bit revealing which scored Mama bonus points on this round.
Reese won by two points!
It was a good day spent with family.
Mr. SP, Rich, Mama and I went to her house yesterday so that the guys could work on the stove. After much labor, the oven was pronounced officially dead.
No Black Friday shopping for me other than on-line. I have done very little shopping, so I’d better get on it. The rest of this weekend is going to be spent either cleaning or decorating for Christmas. We are leaving for a ski trip on the 15th (we think), so I need to get the decorating done now so that we will have a little time to enjoy it.
