Happy Gobble Day To You!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING to everyone out there looking and "reading in." We have had a most excellent turkey day here, with five grandchildren, a friend, one son, a daughter-in-law, a sister and brother-in-law stopping by.
Turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberries, salad, homemade bread and pumpkin pie. A good wine to go with the turkey, too. Lovely, lovely day.
We ended the day with art - coloring with Crayola Pip Squeaks Mix 'Ems. (You can pump red color onto a yellow marker or blue onto a green marker, then you'll have a streaked line. You have to see them to know what I mean.) And my son has a cool game, where he makes random marks on a piece of paper and his daughters - and whoever else chooses to play - have to make something from the mark. These turned into some exceptional pictures. Fun!
Here, on the right, everyone is participating in one of my crazy requests. Thanks, Jenny, for rounding people up to do this. Here's a shot from overhead of everyone's hands - little hands, young hands, big hands, older hands. Some hands were not with us. They were far away from "home" today (home is where Mom is). Some are no longer with us, and we can never again link our fingers together as we once did. Our memories of them are forever bound, however, one to the other.
I hope your day was extra special wonderful - femminismo

Wow, that's a really cool pictures. Things like that are the ones you'll be able to look back on "someday". It sounds like you had a really great day. :) I'm Canadian, so our Thanksgiving was like a month ago. I'm so jealous - you all got to have turkey!

What a lovely Thanksgiving you had! I love the shot of all the hands. I have done this with some students before. Teenagers love it too! Roxanne
