Thanksgiving Fun

It was a wonderful day with family at the farm, and way too much delicious turkey, stuffing, potatoes, gravy, ....... pie. On the drive home, I made my proverbial vow to never eat again, but somehow I was talked into roasting marshmallows. With temperatures hovering around 30, it seemed the perfect weather for the firepit and a little fun outdoors. Another day with many perfect moments to celebrate.

About my firepit.


  1. I think we all feel like we will never eat again after the turkey, dressing etc. and of course the pie!! oh my, Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. Kathysue

  2. Look at those little faces.. Ohhhh, so cute. Even the dog looks eager...

  3. Dear Rita,

  7. Rita,
    Your children are beautiful. Looks like so much fun. I will say I have not seen the giant marshmallows before and I like your skewers too. Much nicer than coat hangers!

    You can not put a price tag on special memories. Glad you had such a nice Thanksgiving.

    Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog post. I love hearing from you. You always warm my heart.

  8. Just found you through you comment on Millie's blog.
    Cute kids? Your grand kids?
    I make my own marshmallows. They are the greatest roasted.

  9. Oh, no, how tragic. I've lost you? And, right from the beginning you were one of my all time favorites.

    Your Thanksgiving appears to have been wonderful. How I miss the holiday, it was always my number two favorite.

    Hope all is well in all ways in your world.

    (I have a good reason for not visiting often -- or at all for a while -- but don't want to go public. Do forgive me though.)

    Warmest regards,


I hope this made you smile. I look forward to hearing what you have to say!
