I was also thrilled to try out my "new" china. This lovely place setting of pseudo vintage (Made in Japan) china was a whopping $12.50 at a recent auction. TWELVE DOLLARS and FIFTY CENTS! And my DH bid on the lovely LENOX water goblets and wine glasses and "won" them at another bank breaking 50 cents. I may never shop at another store again! This brings up another thought which I will leave for another blog...
But anyway, to the right is a photo of the Thanksgiving table...waiting for the feast to begin. And what a feast it was! My DH and I had a nice sized turkey, stuffing, potatoes...a special sweet potato casserole made by my Step-daughter, the traditional green bean casserole made by my big Sista, deviled eggs (one of my favorites,) 2 pumpkin pies (DH.) an apple pie (same Step-daughter,) and more!
And let's not forget about the V-8 juice! We had a special guest visiting from San Diego who had never heard of this unique tradition before, and boy did she make a face when she tried it! Ok, so it is an acquired taste... miss you, Grandmom, and your V-8 toast!
How thankful I am for everything, especially the new memories made on this day with people I know and love.
