What were you Thankful for this Thanksgiving?

As for me, I was thankful, and still am, for the wonderful family I have...

This year DH and I drove to Youngstown, Ohio to celebrate Thanksgiving with all of my cousins. As usual they're a lot of fun, no matter the occasion. After eating our delicious turkey feast and hiking to the historic "Indian Grave," we came home and settled in my Cousin Mary's living room for a knitting lesson.

Cloe, me in the middle and Zoe casting on.

Fortunately my cousin Zoe is already a knitter and she was lots help, I don't think I could have done it without her!

This is Cleo and Allison mastering the knit stitch! I'm so proud of them, they stuck with it and now want to venture out and try knitting some scarves on their own!

I was equally impressed with Carol, Cousin Mary and Marie! Actually Carol and Marie had both knit before and it quickly come back to them. And Cousin Mary was picking it up...


Here I am giving Cousin Mary a private lesson. Sadly I don't have any pictures of Jessica knitting, she was equally impressive and with a little help from her daughter Zoe she mastered the knit stitch.

The second part of our Thanksgiving trip involved a weekend in Washington DC to see my cousin Cleo dance in the Nutcracker, she was a Little Butterfly this year and was simply wonderful.

And I also learned how to dance to some video game....

Zoe is showing me the finer points, she won!

But I'm not looking to shabby!

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!

Looks like a great time!
I was thankful for my MIL, who took my 18-mo old son to pick a Christmas tree so me and hubby could have some time alone. Also thankful to him, for being far kinder to her than he is to me. So now she thinks I'm the best parent ever lol.

No, no knitting men, this time at least. But to their credit they were very interested in what we were doing!
