What am I thankful for... I am incredibly thankful for my family and I am thankful for Mustang Man's family. They had me over for my first Thanksgiving without my blood relatives. I did have my niece for 5 days though, but she couldn't come with us for dinner, so she cuddled up in the blankets and slept while we were away.

When Mustang Man and I arrived at his Aunt's his Ma and Jeffrey were dancing the cooking dance in the kitchen, sampling the dishes, deciding what they  might need more of. 

Everyone else was playing Trivial Pursuit, being protected by Oliver.

 And Mustang Man's Ma brought the center piece straight from her garden. I had no idea she had so many different flowers, and the arrangement was fantastic! Helen made the escort cards on the fly and they looked great!

We all wrote down what we were thankful for... and a few were very moving for much deeper reasons.

Then Helen and I sat and drew Alexander McQueen's shoes... and polished off the bottles of wine...

 It was a wonderful Thanksgiving... amazing family and friends.
