Thanksgiving Starting To Take Shape...

We told you about our friends Larry & Charlotte who custom made us a top to fit over our pool table providing us with a way to comfortably seat 14 people. With our regular dining room table able to sit an additional 8 people we are pretty much set on seating. Aly bought fabric and made a new tablecloth for the pool table. One of the coolest things she had done is with the homemade name place settings using leaves she collected while visiting her parents in Maine. Tons more to do but slowly but surely things are coming together. We have 3 turkeys resting in the refrigerator waiting to be brined. Two will be smoked and the third will get a more traditional roasting.





Come on Thanksgiving. This should be fun. We only hope the weather cooperates allowing us to all go outside for a group hug photo and a few boat rides. We're expecting around 25 friends and family members all together... Too much fun.

I was just purusing adoption blogs and saw yours. Your Thanksgiving decorations are just beautiful! I absolutely love the leaves.

Many blessings on your adoption journey! It's a tough one but I know it will be worth it in the end.
