Today is our Thanksgiving Day, and soon the uncles will arrive! Dylan Thomas writes in A Child's Christmas in Whales of the uncles sleeping with their moist hands in the parlor after Christmas dinner, and that is what this day means to me!



My sister-in-law and I will do a puzzle this afternoon while the uncles rest with a glass of ice-cold Bailey's on the end table and the children pestering them for games, for stories, for a family movie (which will inevitably be Back to the Future II).

A comfortable sigh.

And with a little luck... we'll find them snoring for just a bit in the living room, and my heart will swell.

Family.

Happy Thanksgiving Allison. Your table looks lovely. I was having a hard time reading blogs yesterday, but I enjoyed reading your previous post. The pizza looks good. I miss Chicago pizza but we found a pizza place in town that the owner is from...Chicago...and his pizza is like I'm eating pizza from back home. I enjoy outings like that with my hubby.
Have a wonderful day today!

... et c'est déjà passé! Dear Alli, il me reste le souvenir d'un magnifique Thanksgiving et en fermant les yeux je peux me remémorer les goûts de Tom, du stuffing, des sweet potatoes (Mmh!), de la compote de cranberries et bien sûr des pies comme point sur le i . Wonderfull, thank you so much pour le chaleureux accueil. With love...
