Hi everyone! How was your Thanksgiving? Hope it was lovely. Our was wonderful and relaxing…a day of cooking, watching football and sipping wine. Such fun! Tomorrow our Christmas lights go up and I’m so excited. There is something so enchanting about all those twinkling lights! I do love this time of year! So when I got the chance to steal Grace away from the crowd for a little photo shoot, I couldn’t resist adding some Winter magic to each shot…
Now, let’s hope we get a little snow this winter, just enough to make everything pretty for a few days.
Do you have snow in your area right now?
Have a lovely weekend!

Tonight my brother came over to make pumpkin pie with Grace.
It was so sweet. He patiently measured out each ingredient and then allowed her to add it to the bowl. With her tiny hands, she carefully emptied each cup or spoonful, making sure she didn’t spill a drop. I stood back to observe the magic and take pictures…
Grace didn’t like the sound of the mixer but managed a smile for me.
The pumpkin pies won’t win any prizes for beauty but they tasted delicious and my brother and Grace got to bond. I’m so thankful to have him living here in Portland! It means so much to me that Grace will grow up knowing her Aunt and Uncle.
I hope tomorrow, your family and friends will experience the delight of preparing delicious food together! Being surrounded by those we love is something I will always be thankful for.
