Happy Thanksgiving

I know I say it every year...But Thanksgiving is really a great celebration.   We had all our kids and their kids over for a big turkey dinner.  We've been roasting a turkey all day. And like everyone else, we can't get over the beautiful weather for the past few days.

Jessica and Emily came for a visit a day early.  As usual, we had a long list of things to do.   Jessica wanted to work on a Halloween outfit.  She's going to be a corpse bride. ...a dead bride.... yuk....but once we did a little research, we made a fabulous wedding outfit.  Now the rest is up to her to find a bouquet of dead flowers and do a good make-up job.   I love her mysterious look under that veil!!

As a treat for the rest of the guests we were expecting for supper, we made "cookie dough truffles".  Emily is doing the dipping of the truffles into the chocolate in this photo.  These truffles were a real hit.  The recipe made at least 3 or 4 dozen.   There is not one left in the fridge.    As the kids were making up the recipe, I noticed that there was a lot of "taste testing" going on.   "You know, Quality Control Grammie", they would say.        I quipped back, but you know kids, the Yield on this recipe says more than 6 truffles.  They laughed and laughed at that.    But seriously, don't those truffles look so delicious.

Jessica is has been practicing knitting for a few months now.  So today, she knit a whole project.  A coffee cup cozy for her mother.  She knit the whole thing herself and it fit her mothers favorite mug perfectly.  I totally forgot to take a picture, but it was sweet. 

And finally, here is a picture of all six of my wonderful grandchildren at our Thanksgiving supper table.    Aren't those all beautiful smiles. 

Yes, we are so Thankful

Happy Thanksgiving.
