Thanksgiving this year was somewhat quiet compared to other years. Our daughter Becca and her husband came home. My sister and family also had Thanksgiving dinner with us and our good friend Dr. Charles Jessup. Even though not everyone got to come home this year we still kept up with our usual Thanksgiving traditions; lots of homemade pies, homemade rolls, the tradition yams with little marshmellows and green bean casserole, mashed potatoes with turkey gravy and of course the turkey and dressing. Every year I also make a cranberry jello salad that has become a tradition. It is made with raspberry jello (using the juice from the pineapple and a fresh squeezed orange for the liquid), with chopped apples, chopped cranberries, chopped pecans, tidbit pineapple and pomegranates. I decorate it with raspberries.
Our Thanksgiving pie table includes pumpkin, apple, mince, lemon meringue and this year instead of pecan we had a Dixie pie:

And of course the traditional cookie turkeys:

Jen and Adam and family enjoyed Thanksgiving this year in Phoenix, Arizona with close family friends the Esplins. Just wanted to share an adorable picture of Henry, Caroline and Becca on their way back…completely tuckered out.
