Giving Thanks

And suddenly the holidays are upon us, in all their dizzying glory! We kicked off the season in Roanoke this year for Thanksgiving with the Waldvogel clan. It was hard not to have my Grandmother there this year, and as always we missed Aunt Boo in London, but Erin’s friend Joel and his children joined us for dinner and the house was full of beauty and laughter.

My father and Raymond ran a 5K in the morning while the kids watched the Macy’s parade and Lola Gray continued the Waldvogel tradition of making Thanksgiving place cards.

Lola also insisted that she make the pumpkin pie this year, and NayNay graciously agreed. Despite the fact that I set the oven wrong and tried to burn it, it was delicious.

It was so wonderful to be home again, and wonderful, too, to return to our Savannah home and dive into December and all the fun it has in store for us.
