We were so lucky to have a Thanksgiving visitor! Kevin flew out for the week! Just having him here was so nice. He was another wrestling buddy for Zach, and great entertainment for Lily! We didn't do anything too special, just lots of food, good conversation and catching up! He had only two requests: spinach salad and sweet potato casserole! I was happy to oblige! I love my family, and having them around is just not something I take for granted anymore! I know how Zach felt as he cried for 5 minutes after dropping Kevin off at the airport, family bonds are strong, and it's hard to watch them leave when you've had so much fun!
We shared Thanksgiving dinner with the Hansen and Dixon families. What a GREAT meal! I was so impressed with all the food. The turkey wasn't so intimidating after all! I know that I will use some of the new recipes from Amy and Alissa at future Thanksgiving Dinners. This is what I love about food. Food carries memories. I make dishes that I learned from family, or old friends, and I think about them, about things they've taught me, and about life in general. We all carry little pieces of each other.
