I'm republishing this post of last year because this year we are going to my son's and daughter-in-law's house for Thanksgiving. It is easier for them with the kids and it's little Jacks birthday the day after so we'll be having a birthday party too. He will be Three!!
I'll be cooking and bringing several things but Carl, my son, is deep frying the turkey.
This is the first Thanksgiving in my new dining room. I wanted to make it perfect. Of course it never is. The names on the leaves were a last minute thought. I was so busy trying to keep organized in the kitchen that I didn't get any pictures of the food on the table or the family around the table!!! Really dumb mistake.
Another mistake was that I set the food on the "buffet" table then served the soup. Of course by the time everyone was done with their soup, the food was only luke warm!
Also have to make a note to use smaller soup bowls next year!!
The one different placemat is because I had thought the children would sit at a little table but Ava wanted to sit with the big people and I only had 4 of the other place-mats!!!
Michele took these last two of the table.
