It just goes to show, no matter where you are in the world, the United States is something to be thankful for.

And I have to agree with everyone else, those are some mighty fine looking pies you have Mrs. Cleaver.

Swimming on Thanksgiving. That is AWESOME!!!! It was cold here in Kentucky, but it did get a little warm were we could open the front door. The food looked great, also you had some great drinks, Coca-Cola, I love it!!!

Kath said...

What a great day--especially with the grandkids! :) What a joy! Before you know it, they'll be at your side while you're baking and cooking--fun! :)

Brooke said...

I logically know there would be warm weather on Thanksgiving where you are, but I can't wrap my head around that! LOL!

Pam said...

I enlarged each photo to get a closer look at all the gorgeous wood!! I loved those weed block or chunks on your wooden bookshelf. What are they exactly? The pies, made me drool! So glad you got your marshmellows. Was the dad of the other group the fellow I met here at the mall last year when I was out shopping with you guys at WestShore Plaza???
Oh and off topic, What did you mean that you can't see my Christmas tree on my header? That's weird! Others who left comments could see it, so I'm just wondering!

Jungle Mom said...

Pam,
Yes, it is the same family. The weed blocks are wood stamped with flowers, and I can now see your tree so it was probably my internet here.
Any more questions??? LOL!
