Thanksgiving Memories




"The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together." ~Erma Bombeck

Great pictures!
We loved the Crockpot Dressing for Thanksgiving! I'm so glad you posted the recipe on your blog....I've been wanting the recipe ever since my friend made it a few years back.
Thanks so much....it was fabulous and I'll probably make it again....even in the "off" season!
