It is already time to take down the bittersweet from around the house.

Thanksgiving came and went this year much too quickly.

We had a house full of family for nearly 4 days with 12 around the table.
Nels and my brothers fried our first turkey (we women had a backup roasting).

We ate many pies and tarts.

There seemed to always be a game going--small groups playing chess, checkers, and crokinole and the whole crowd playing Apples-to-Apples and Pit (which is quite a romp of a game).

As everyone headed over the rivers and through the woods back home, I reflected on how wonderful it is to have a holiday that really is just all about being together as a family.

We love Apples to Apples and Pit, too. We always try to end the night with Pit when we play games, otherwise we have headaches for the rest of the night, lol! Such a noisy game, but so fun. :)

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays for the same reasons you mentioned. :) All those pies and tarts look so delicious...

What a beautiful post! Your pies look fantastic. How did the fried turkey come out? :) We love Apples to Apples in my house too... I'm going to have to check out crokinole now!
