I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  We had a very nice day along with a delicious meal.  The pack was thankful that we shared some turkey and gravy with all of them, too Smile1

This year, it was just Carlos and I sitting at the table to enjoy our Thanksgiving feast.  Carlos’ cousin has joined us several times in years past, but this year he decided to save his vacation time to visit us and other family on Christmas.  My brother lives in Atlanta; my parents, my sister and her two kids live in Tucson, AZ.  Carlos’ family live in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Indiana and St. Thomas.  We are all spread out, as most families in the USA are today.  We’d love to spend the holidays with family, but we are also quite content to do our own thing and enjoy the time with our dogs while we plump ourselves up on left over Thanksgiving chow.

Check out the spread.  It might not exactly be magazine cover worthy, but it was all delicious!!

We also made pumpkin pie and bought some pecan and sweet potato pie, but I forgot to make some peas!  I know; it’s still a lot of food for two people, but its Carlos’ favorite holiday, and he loves the leftovers 🙂

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner.  Did anyone go shopping on Black Friday?  We stayed home and played with our dogs in the yard for a while, then took Sasha, Tommy and Argus swimming.  It was a nice and quite weekend.  Just the way we like them 🙂
