We enjoyed a nice Thanksgiving holiday at Grandma and Grandpa’s (my parents) house. I always enjoy making the mashed potatoes. There is something homey and decadent about fresh mashed potatoes. Since the Sugar Snaps and I are vegetarian, Grandma and Grandpa got us a tofu ‘turkey’ from Trader Joes which was very good! My brother, much to his surprise, did not know which one was the vegetarian gravy. Grandma and Grandpa set up their living room as a playroom full of books and toys when we visit. Grandma even rotates toys in and out to keep them interested and entertained.
Thanksgiving 2013: Ryder, Grayson, Xayden and Capri
The Thanksgiving Table
Capri admired Uncle David’s “monster truck”
while Xayden and Grayson gave it a ‘test drive.’
Then, Uncle David took the Sugar Snaps’ 97 year-old Great Grandma home in the Hummer (‘monster truck’). People were amused to see her in the truck on the way to the Thanksgiving dinner earlier in the day and waved to them as they drove along. We enjoyed spending time with family this Thanksgiving. It was a great way to share gratitude and a wonderful meal. What did you do this Thanksgiving? What are your traditions? I would love to hear from you. I read every comment.
