Thanksgiving Dinner, part deux

Because I was traveling during the Canadian Thanksgiving of this year, my aunt postponed the annual thanksgiving dinner to the week after my family and I got back from our travels.  And as I knew, there would be piles of food, from two turkeys and ham, to asparagus and two different mashed potatoes, Kristen’s famous bread, my dad’s shrimp cocktail and Uncle John’s smoked salmon.  There definitely was more than enough food, with Amanda, Bosco and Jeff joining this year’s dinner.

I just like the feel and warm of candles. It adds so much more comfort to the dinner table.

I loved the setting of the desserts and the colours of the flowers. Thanksgiving themed.

And we almost didn’t have room in our bellies for dessert!

I’m thankful for having family to celebrate these kinds of holidays and the food that we are lucky enough to have. Happy late Thanksgiving!
