Getting Ready

There are lots of good smells in the kitchen today.
 I'm just about done cooking for now. The stuffing ingredients are waiting to cool out and then they will be combined and stuffed into the refrigerator to await stuffing the turkey tomorrow morning. 

 Jake's favorite, berry pie, is cooling on the counter, along with the cranberry sauce. Someone else is bringing the pumpkin pie. 

The centerpiece for the table is done, created out of grocery store mums and clippings from shrubs in the yard. 
 The table is set and ready for our guests. There will be seven of us: our son Jake, Tom's sister Jan, my cousins Dan and Kris and Kris's guy, Charlie, will be joining us. Jill and the kids are with their other family in Colorado. 

This has been a year of changes for some of us, some good things have come our way, and we all have plenty to be grateful for. 

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
