Better late than never! Thanksgiving 2021...

Thanksgiving 2021..πŸ’–πŸ’–

Not everyone in this picture but a good amount...

The boys and their girls..Dusty, Chelsea, Holly, Seth, Adam, Erin, Mason, Owen, Aaron and Jesse πŸ’— Little Cassidy running away πŸ˜€

We headed over to Fair Oaks, CA and my sister Linda's house on Wednesday before Thanksgiving to drop off 2 days worth of cooking πŸ˜‹ Visted with her and Bobby and then headed to the Super 8 where we had reservations for 2 nights. 

We relaxed and had dinner in the room that I brought from home.  

Thanksgiving morning we had hard boiled eggs and toast in the room that I brought from home.  Since Covid (or at least that's their excuse) no breakfast in the lobby and they used to have a pretty good one. Prices didn't drop because of it either. 

Ken dropped me at Linda's and he headed to Rio Linda to visit KC, his annual tradition. 

Eric, Christina and Mason were the first to arrive and then everyone else trickled in. So nice to see everyone! We were missing Bryan (who was working), Cheryl, Jacob and Allissa but at least the last two were enjoying Thanksgiving together in Italy. Thinking it's going to be hard on Allissa leaving him to come home after all this time together. Hopefully it won't be too long before Jacob is back in the states visiting. 

Brothers...Seth and Mason..πŸ’™

We all had a good day together and before you know it was getting dark. Neither of us likes driving in the dark anymore, so we said our goodbyes and headed to the hotel. Certainly was awesome all of us getting together and enjoying like the old days! Love my familyπŸ’•

Friday morning we took our time and then headed for Auburn, CA and Edelweiss, our favorite restaurant there! Had an awesome breakfast and then stopped at Eric's house for a short visit with Eric, Chris and Mason. WE just missed Seth and Holly πŸ˜”

Then to Bryan's house where we had a visit with Cheryl, Adam and Erin (Bryan was working).  We picked up my orange Jeep Patriot from there.  We loaned it to them a few months ago when Bryan's car broke down. No hurry to get it back but this saved Bryan a trip over.  

Adam spent two nights with us before ending his vacation. Northern Nevada got a little cold for tent camping when morning temps are in the teens. πŸ’™

We got home, unloaded a few things and then headed next door for Happy Hour. Nice to see Karen's family who are in town for the holiday. 

Yesterday morning we went back for breakfast with her family.  Very nice! Last night we went back for dinner with them before they head home Sunday morning. 

After coming home did some decorating, we'll do the tree Sunday evening.

Ken made a fire outside when we got home so enjoyed that for a couple of hours. 

Ken hung these two lanterns yesterday.  One of the last presents
my mom gave me before passing away in 2009. πŸ’•πŸ˜žThey've been in the
original box, decided it was time to get them out for Christmas..

This morning took our time getting ready and having breakfast, more like brunch so it included champagne for us! Ken's suggestion, not that I said no LOL.  Yummy! A little more decorating and now looking forward to this evening and getting the tree finished. 

Christina took some nice selfies while at Thanksgiving..so I stole them from FB.

Another Thanksgiving came and went.  Thankful for our family and friends. Blessed to be healthy and oh so happy in this wonderful life we're living. πŸ’–πŸ’• Thanks for following along πŸ’–πŸ’—


  1. Lots of great family photos. I didn't see one of you and your sweetie, though! ♥
    I love the colour of your sister, Wendy's hair. I wish mine would hurry up and make the change. The sun keeps doing a 'blonde' number on it. Ha ha
    No doubt Adam would be cold in a tent. We see lots of tents here in the Q and it has been down to single digits. Brrrr. I love our warm Suite.
    Glad it was a wonderful Thanksgiving for you, no such thing as a late celebration.

    1. There were a couple of pics of me...but I didn't like them so since I pick the pictures..LOL..Wendy was a dirty blonde, but she was in the hospital a few years back and literally overnight she woke up to that color!! I love it on her too, and sister Linda's is natural too. Yep it was a great day!

  2. The photos tell the story of a great family get together. Lots of happy faces. Glad you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving.

  3. That was a BIG family gathering. How fun!!!! Great pictures too.

    1. It was nice having all of us together felt like a "normal" day!

  4. From the pictures alone, I did read the words...lol, it looks like a wonderful Thanksgiving. Lovely lights from your mom attached to a memory.

    1. Yep it was wonderful :)) Love having things from my mom...would rather have her with us though..
