Giving thanks.

"We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures." ~Thornton Wilder

Thanksgiving this year was quaint and quiet but everything Thanksgiving should be...

It began with a small gathering of friends a few days before...

Then, on Thanksgiving morning, we had a small brunch at our house where Steven made his now-famous homemade cinnamon rolls...

...followed by dinner with Steven's parents - Luci Belle's Papa T and Halmani.  Steven made both fried and smoked turkeys and pulled pork, too.  And we splurged on Monster Cookies.  YUM!

Conscious of our treasures, indeed.
