Thanksgiving Day was lovely: spending time together as a family, doing a bit of work and a bit of play. My parents journeyed down and arrived by evening to spend a few days with us. Our days were spent in a variety of ways. The men accomplished some electrical and renovating projects. Grandma and granddaughter sewed a felt ornament and began an embroidery sampler. We celebrated two fall birthdays, went for walks, played some games, feasted, and attended the Mountain Masters craft fair.
One activity that the children look forward to is decorating sugar cookies for Christmas. This year, we baked with Grandma in the camp kitchen: some cookies for us and some to give away. We had some creative artists!
One night, we admired a beautiful sunset.
Holidays: a time to reflect, rejuvenate, and reconnect.
