To my sister’s house we go! We will soon be on our way to a fabulous feast with family and friends. We are at 33 (and counting) this year. Our record was 42 back in 1982.
For nearly 40 years my family has been making the trek through rain, sleet and often snow to meet up at my oldest sister’s house in the western mountains of Maine. I will head up Wednesday night to help with preparations and then the masses arrive sometime before dinner on Thursday.
It is fun to see the ever so slight changes in this event over the years. We used to take the little ones to the Nutcracker the next day in Portland. Then in a flash the little ones grew up and went shopping in nearby North Conway on Black Friday. Now, that generation has little ones and we are all content to hike up the hill to view the snow on Mount Washington and come back for a nice hot coffee and piece of pie!
I am very thankful for my family and my friends old and new. Thanks to all of you for reading my blog and sharing your quilting life with all of us.
What are your Thanksgiving traditions? However you celebrate, I hope you have a very happy and thankful day.
