I'm still here....

The Holiday Frenzie has begun.....
The Thanksgiving gathering and meal was fantastic this year. As more of the
next generation pitched in, the meal was somewhat different that Mama's traditional fixins, but still great none the less.
Reg roasted root veggies-beets, parsnips, and carrots-loved it!
Liz recreated grandma's sweet potato dish
Rena made pumpkin pies with her maple whipped cream to top them off with
Judy brought mashed potatoes
Pop cooked carrots
I made the green beans, cranberry salad, dressing with apples, cranberries,raisins, and pecans....
cooked turnips fresh from the garden, and sauteed fresh spinich...
Grandma of course had the most important role of "turkey cooker" and the turkey was delicious!
the list goes on and on...
Now, let the Christmas festivities begin....hanging of the green tomorrow at church, music, parades, crafts, cards, parties, gifts, .........
