Thanksgiving 2020 🦃

Shelton loves to eat at the dinning room table and light candles. I’m thankful she enjoys hospitality.

I’ve learned a few things this Thanksgiving. First, it takes just as long to prepare Thanksgiving dinner for three as it does for a group. Second, I still eat too much even when making tiny portions. Third, I am grateful for technology to see my family for the prayer even if I cannot hug them. Just seeing their faces and hearing their voices was so meaningful.

This year we swapped our 9×13 Pyrex of sweet potatoes for twice baked sweet potatoes with marshmallows and pecans for Scott & me.

“Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence”.

This year we had a tiny smoked turkey & honey baked ham with miniature versions of our favorites. Seven-layer salad, twice baked sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, dressing, jello, pumpkin parfait, and cranberry relish from my sweet neighbor. I made our Piggott chocolate pie but couldn’t even eat a bite. I have no doubt it will be eaten this weekend.

the traditional pumpkin pie.

Each Thanksgiving we eat, watch Hallmark movies and football games. This year was no different. And a good time was had by all.

Happy Thanksgiving 🦃

Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours 🧡
