Thanksgiving Views

Oh, we had the best Thanksgiving celebration yesterday and I really do mean that.  We woke to snow, just enough to make things really white, but not too much as to keep me from going out to feed my parents' horses.  Roan and Willow went sledding for the second day in a row.  I went to Voldemart and bought Coke, silly me.  That place is strange right before the big shopping day!

Sleeve Flakes

I tried to capture the flakes falling on my jacket, but I'm an amateur.

Snowy Homeplace

Out at the Old Davis homeplace, it was so very white.
I think they had four inches of snow.
It is hard to hold off the Christmas Spirit in weather like this.

Thanksgiving Snow

Everything is just so quiet in the snow.
I enjoyed my time alone and was especially thankful for it
when I fell two times trying to put out hay at the stables.

Thanksgiving 2

Laurel Mae is usually quite vocal about the food coming quickly,
but she settled into her Thanksgiving meal with quiet focus.
She loved it all.

Thanksgiving 1

I don't think Thanksgiving should be complicated, so I took various shortcuts like boxed stuffing and instant potatoes.  I didn't have any fresh potatoes and my sweet potatoes had gone south on me.  I just cannot get those things to keep more than a couple weeks!  Nonetheless, the instant potatoes were wonderful!  Lots of butter and evaporated milk did the trick.

Glitter Cone

We ended the day drowsy and covered in blankets.  Early bedtimes for all and pumpkin pie for breakfast this morning.

Laurel Mae is just too cute for words.

Our weather report says for us to expect snow tomorrow! We'll see what happens. :) May be nothing more than flurries.

Wal-Mart was really weird. They had everything covered in saran wrap and people guarding the stuff.

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
