Thanksgiving 2009

The boys are helping me break up bread for stuffing as we begin our Thankgiving preparations. I love this holiday - I truly have so many things to be thankful for, and it's great to have a day with not much else to do but enjoy family. And cook! Thanksgiving foods are seasonal, traditional, and delicious, and even though (or maybe because!) it's a lot of work to make the meal, it's fun to see it all come together.

Here's what we have planned.
