This Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving I am counting my many blessings and feeling thankful for so many things in my life
My awesome husband who fixed my apple peeler today when I thought all hope was lost.
My three little ones, who are not so little any more, and who helped all day today in the kitchen. I love our cranberry sauce and apple-pie making Thanksgiving tradition.
My wonderful mother, who took my three little kitchen helpers out of the house today so I could attempt to put my kitchen back in order.
Our friends and family who will be celebrating with us tomorrow. Hooray for Friendsgiving!
I am also missing my brother Derek deeply, and bracing myself for another holiday season without him. Derek, I will always serve canned cranberry sauce, and not just the made-from-scratch kind in your memory.
Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. I had to share that we ALWAYS make turnips on Thanksgiving even though not one of us eats it or likes it. It was my mom's favorite and we all laugh as the bowl gets passed around the table and the serving spoon never leaves it!
    You never forget, but the memories do seem to get gentlier.
    I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

  2. Looks like you had a great (and delicious) Thanksgiving! We too were thinking of Derek, we used his water carafe he gave Joe and I as a wedding gift and Tommy said that he was typing something in his phone and his automatic spell check changed it to "wonky". I'm sure he would have loved your homemade cranberry sauce (or definitely teased you about it) and would have loved spending time with your three lovely and amazing kids! I am in constant awe of you Katy! Hope we see you soon:)
