Thanksgiving 2015

This was our fourth year hosting Thanksgiving and third(!) in our house, which I can hardly believe. We lucked out this year with unseasonably warm weather, which allowed us to take some much-needed walks between feasts.thumb_IMG_8329_1024I took this snap on my usual walking route, the Community Path, in Somerville. It was rainy, but such a pretty scene.thumb_IMG_8332_1024A couple of weeks ago Mike gave a talk at Creative Somerville at Aeronaut Brewing. His dad even made it up for the evening and Mike did so well!thumb_IMG_8340_1024And just like that, it was Thanksgiving. This year we used Muzzy’s tablecloth, napkins and runner on the sideboard and Mike’s grandparents’ glasses. I love adding special family touches to our home.thumb_IMG_8342_1024Apparently our Christmas cactus didn’t get the message that it’s not quite time to bloom yet. No matter, we LOVE this beauty, which brightens up out kitchen a lot during the short days this time of year.thumb_IMG_8345_1024Thanksgiving crew, unfortunately my dad wasn’t feeling well and couldn’t make it down. We still had a nice time, though he was missed.thumb_IMG_8375_1024Cuties all dressed up for dinner on Friday night.thumb_IMG_8386_1024After a day of resting and cleaning up from fall, we decided it was time for Christmas. We absolutely love this season and try to make it last as long as possible. thumb_IMG_8392_1024We got our tree at Ricky’s, a local nursery, and had so much fun decorating the house inside and out!
