Thanksgiving Meal Menu with Recipes

Usually Turkey Day meals require only one dish of us – since we have a large family and everyone pitches in, pot-luck-style. The year we did Thanksgiving Menu on our own – when we lived in Arkansas for a brief while – it took me two days to get everything done. I called my mom […]

Over a year ago, my friend Angela sent me some flatties (flat laminated images of their family members inspired by Flat Stanley) to take a little Texas adventure with our crew. We had high hopes of taking them to the Capitol Building, the Texas History Museum, the Texas-shaped corn maze in Marble Falls at Sweet […]

It is that time of year again… time for the long shadows of fall, the golden evenings, the brisk sweater weather, and pumpkins everywhere. I thought it would be fitting to skip down memory lane this morning before we head out to the harvest field trip we are about to go on… and share with […]
