I have loved the above Norman Rockwell photo for years. It symbolizes what Thanksgiving and life is really all about, family. To be blessed with a loving family that you can sit around a table full of delicious food and laugh and share stories is what it really is all about, isn't it?!!
Now that I am married, live in the country and have this romantic view of our farm life, I truly feel holidays will be that much more if I can get everyone together here at our farm for fun filled weekends full of laughter, food and tall tales. Theres just something about living on a farm, I can't explain it!! In fact, I have already requested a dinner bell off our front porch to ring and call in the family whenever dinner is on the table..how fun would that be?
DING DING DING..... DINNER!!!!
this was taken this past Summer at the farmhouse in Heritage Park, LOVED this dinner bell ;)
Now, truth be told, I have never made a turkey before. I mean, I helped mom a few times here and there but never have I made one from scratch on my own! Sure, I've roasted chickens before..but only recently. And yes, you can guarantee I'd still want my mom in the kitchen with me if they were to come to the farm for Thanksgiving, but thats all part of the fun!!
So today, if you are Canadian..I hope you put on your cutest aprons and enjoy the day with your family! I can smell the turkey already...Mmmm, Happy Thanksgiving Y'all!!
