Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s that time of year again. We will be heading to my sister’s in the western Maine mountains for our 40th Thanksgiving together!

I believe there will bet 32 at the table this year. Of course, this is subject to change with a family of this size. But, there is no doubt that however many make it up the driveway, we will all enjoy our holiday traditions together.

The younger generation now helps out in the kitchen as the wee ones watch 
the parade on TV. 


Then, after we all feel like this guy… 

we don our safety orange vests and hike up the hill for sweeping views of Mount Washington and all the world has to offer.


I wish each and every one of you a Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. Happy Thanksgiving Wendy! Just curious as to why you wear the orange vests.. Is it hunting season?

  2. Sounds like a lovely time together with family, Wendy!
    I'd bet Lori is right about the reason for the vests. Smart to take no chances. Some hunters shoot at anything that moves.

  3. hiking up the hill sounds like a good tradition. I wish more of my family would keep on with a family tradition, but spread wide and all with their own families now they don't seem interested in keeping it up with the extended family anymore - you have fun with yours and it sounds wonderful

  15. Thirty-two people! Must be one long table! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. It will be a quiet one for us but that is okay. We are going out for dinner. We could probably show up at your sister's and no one would even notice us being there. We could just blend in with all the other people.
