Happy Thanksgiving

Today is Thanksgiving day here in the United States, a time to reflect on our blessings.  I am thankful for my family, friends and for the wonderful people that read my blog.  I am thankful that I live here in beautiful rural Nebraska with it’s changing seasons and friendly people.  I am thankful for learning how to quilt in 1981 as quilting has been a very fulfilling art form for me and full of future possibilities.  I am thankful for my computer and the internet as it has opened the world to me in ways I never would have guessed when we purchased our first computer many, many years ago.  Those are just a few of the things I am thankful for and I could make lists and lists of things I am thankful for as could everyone reading this but will stop here. 

Tomorrow at dinner at my brothers home I will probably eat too much, laugh a lot and get that warm fuzzy feeling all over from time spent with those I love.  Just the best things to have for Thanksgiving day.IMG_5596Speaking of eating too much, my part of the dinner is to bring the dessert, and what says Thanksgiving dessert more than pumpkin pie.  I made two this afternoon and have purchased some whipping cream that will get beat up into a sweet, white topping for each slice.  Can’t wait!

Happy, Happy Thanksgiving from my house to yours!

I haven't been on here in a few days, so almost missed this one. I do hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Your pies look perfect! Now it's time to decorate for Christmas at our house! Happy Holidays to you!

Happy Thanksgiving! I too, made pumpkin pies, but my crusts were gluten free. I followed the recipe on the pumpkin can, and found that the spices were better than any recipe I'd made before. :)
