What a whirlwind! Thanksgiving was nearly perfect for our family. The food: roast beef & ham & turkey, potatoes & dressing, salads & sides, and my favorite Thanksgiving dish: Pie! I made it my personal mission to have sampled each of the six different pies before the end of the weekend. I am proud to report that I succeeded in my lofty endeavor.

We shared the holiday with my in-laws and one of the activities high on our list (nearly as important as pie-sampling) was spending a day on the mountain exploring around a couple of old cabins.

In addition to exploring, my older boys did what boys do: played in the dirt, dug under rocks, and practiced new photo-hijinks when Mom came by with the camera.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
