The day began with our "Thanksgiving" notebook. I wasn't sure how this would go over, but it was a huge hit. So was the cream sherry! Everyone had fun listing funny "thanks" and heartfelt ones.
While the turkey roasted, the family chilled.
My mother is on the right, my son on the left; the guy in the black shirt is my brother. (The dog, Jazzy, is my mother's Shih Tzu. Mister is mysteriously absent--he was right behind my brother.)

Lynne, you'd asked about my shelf--it's here!
Here is the dessert bar
Meanwhile, the rolls were rising...
We bought a fresh turkey this year (Publix--not from our farm! :0). My mother said, "It was the BEST turkey ever." But she always says that. :-)

And the snowman
So, how was your Thanksgiving? Any favorite dishes?
