Thanksgiving for our family this year was not a traditional one spent with extended family around a bountiful feast. That day found us traveling, and enjoying the Thanksgiving meal Cracker Barrel had to offer. We still enjoyed our time away with just the four of us!
But...when we returned, I decided an impromtu feast was in order to celebrate before our oldest returned to college--to make memories and show them love. We set the table with our nicest stoneware, and silver inherited from parents.
We added fall decorations, and prepared a feast of rosemary-roasted chicken and potatoes, green bean casserole, corn, and homemade buttermilk biscuits. Yummy! I think they appreciated it after meals on the road. We enjoyed spending time together over the meal.
It's so important to build pleasant memories while we have our children with us. Now that our oldest is at college, we have very limited times with her, and we try to make the most of them.
