TURKEY DAY - A RETROSPECT

This Thanksgiving, we broke with tradition and had our family meal at my little sister's house.

I love her kitchen - she is an amazing cook and did a wonderful job of hosting everyone.

It was just crisp enough to enjoy a nice fire

It was a beautiful, perfect day outside

Not exactly what most people picture when you say 'Thanksgiving", but it works for me!
How did you celebrate??

Oh how warm and balmy this looks.
We celebrated with victuals and drink...
and had tons of fun at home! For the past 2 Turkey days we were away, so it felt good to be home!
fire in the fireplace, ping pong in the garage, plenty to share!

Beautiful home, great views. I'm completely jealous. I had a lovely Thanksgiving in NY, but It wasn't anywhere near that warm.

Anne it looks like an amazing day! Your sister has a beautiful home...and those images with water and palm trees! I feel warm just looking at them.

Your sister's home is beautiful! We went to my husband's family's house and my mom came along. It's nice to do Thanksgiving with both sides of the family.

PS I really cannot stop staring at her fireplace! OK, moving on now...!

We had the traditional Thanksgiving Feast at my folks. They still want to have everyone(we all bring side dishes and deserts galore) while they can. Fun and festive for all.

That weather works for moi... California Thanksgivings are usually warm! We had a little rain a couple days before to cool us down so we could have a fire in the fireplace too... it was a real treat!
Your sister's house looks lovely... love the view outdoors!
ENJOY your weekend!

I would do dishes by hand to look out her windows to see the view outdoors! I love her kitchen too.

What an amazing place by the water! Looks like so much fun! I agree with Courtney, if you're trying to make us jealous, it's working :)
