Glorious Thanksgiving

    How nice it was to have this old house filled with family for Thanksgiving. All my hard work last year makes the holidays even more special.  Decorating my new spaces and having room for all of us was amazing.
   Here's a shot of the table, looking better than ever:

    I love that the family room is no longer off the dining room, it makes it seem more formal. The kitchen was rocking too, with wine slushies and appetizers: 
    I know it's a lot of work, but the smells and sounds are what I've always dreamed of. A big happy house.
    My rolling dessert cart made it's debut, loaded down with goodness and the party was so good Hiawatha himself came.
From daughters helping me, to grandmother's first selfies, and did I mention wine slushies? It was a holiday to remember. 
     Anna helped me every step of the way and if I ever go down, she can recreate the meal. You just need 2 lbs of butter!
  Even the teenager visited, laughed, she may have even eaten, and entertained her grandmother with her music.🎶❤️
It was a magic holiday with a lot to be grateful for. That's why I love old houses. They remember what came before and the stories of all the families that lived here will forever be part of it's history and future. We've much to be grateful for in the old village farmhouse!
