Thanksgiving 2013

Happy Thanksgiving!

We love Thanksgiving.  Our dining room table belonged to Mike's grandparents.  Mike's parents brought it to us from Michigan when they visited last Christmas.  Our tablecloth was a gift Mike's mother brought back from a trip to Ecuador while visiting Mike's sister, Tammy.

The buffet all set.

Kristin is a wonderful cook!  Here are a few shots of the culinary delicacies.

Mike and I ready to dig into the delicious food.  We feel there is someone missing from this photo.  Kristin's aunt and uncle as well as another cousin will be moving from California to Colorado in the new year.  We look forward to hosting them for Thanksgiving next year.  We are thankful for the blessings in our life, but we pray there will be a baby at next year's Thanksgiving table.

Kristin is a fourth generation pie baker.  She, her mother, and sister, are all well known for their delicious pies!

Mike then set up Kristin's Happy Spot in front of the fire.

Kristin made this pillow her freshman year of college to place against the wall to study.  It has a few holes in it and needs to be replaced after twenty-one years.

Games after dessert are a Thanksgiving tradition.

Tonight it was Carcassonne, one of Mike's favorite games.

We enjoy the holidays and spending time together.  We feel blessed to have each other and our marriage.  We anxiously await the time when we can share this time and traditions with a child.
