What made this week sweeter was that this is the family that Dan and I used to spend our Christmases with when we lived in Seattle. My aunt and uncle live six hours away, in Oregon, and would welcome us whenever we could find the time to drive south. It was so nice to have time with them, with my girls. We all missed Dan...
Thanksgiving morning we were still awaiting two members of the family. We took advantage of pre-roasting morning to visit Buttermilk Falls, right outside of town.
A little geology lesson with Uncle Johnny.
Once everyone had arrived, it was time to get down to cooking. The day was so wonderful, full of visiting, creating, lounging, playing, roasting and toasting...oh, and eating.
So much to be thankful for.
