Thanksgiving 2013

I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving. Ours was nice but very quiet. The best part was, it was just the three of us. The worst part was, it was just the three of us. Holidays just aren’t the same without extended family.

Even though it’s just us, I do try to make things festive and special. Sometimes it’s hard and I think “why bother.” But, if I didn’t go out of my way, it would be just an ordinary day. I’d like to smack those people who complain about having to spend the holidays with relatives. They need to shut up and deal with it. You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone.

I broke out the good china and silver, and bought a small floral centerpiece.

It wasn’t the most fancy or elaborate Thanksgiving table, but I think it looked very nice.

In the morning, we watched the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

In the afternoon, we had some appetizers while we watched It’s a Wonderful Life.

I definitely need to get a little more creative with the appetizers. I always do cheese and crackers and shrimp cocktail.

We’re finished decorating for Christmas, so we enjoyed the trees.

The puppies were happy that everyone was home and that we were all together. Our family is small, but I’m so thankful for each and every one of them. Even my fur babies!

Gubler got a new sweater and he loves it! He is soooo cute!

My darling child fell asleep right after appetizers. I think he was bored with our choice of a movie. He was complaining that it was in black and white! Typical. Sigh…

We had a much bigger Turkey than we needed, but I wanted leftovers so it worked out.
