Thanksgiving Dinner....

I took a pretty big break from the computer. I haven't done that for a long time.  I want to thank my family for humoring me.  Everyone was so hungry and I made them wait until I got a few pictures for posterity (and the food blog).  All homemade, except the donuts of course....I LOVE GLAZED DONUTS.  I dream about them and could easily eat a box solo.  YUM!
My Dad and brother put so much time into the dinner...as always.  It is a great service and sacrifice that they make with a smile.  This year I am grateful for the wonderful example my dad has been in our lives.  We (his children and grandchildren) are his life.  Since I can remember he has taken time to let us know how much he loves us, not only in word and deed.....but with time....TIME, PRECIOUS TIME.  Many a Sunday he comes over before we are home from church and is busy preparing a meal that he can share with his kids. He's the first to arrive, and the last to eat!  
I know you work hard Dad.  I know you do it for us.  I know that I will never, never be able thank you for all you do.  I only hope that you know that!

Oh dang, that looks so good! I love your detail shots naomi! That's something I'm trying to practice.
We went to my in-laws for Thanksgiving dinner and ate octopus (well I didn't eat the octopus), fishy-turkey(that's when they cook the turkey and the fish in the same pan!), and horse! I hate when they eat horse. (I told my husband I went to horse camp when I was a girl scout and my horse's name was Casey, and he said, "yeah and we ate casey"). Anyways, thats my Thanksgiving story.
