I cleaned up the mess
and changed the sewing room

back into the dining room.
Two tables set for 15 family members.

My mom's beautiful Croatian crystal water goblets.
Mini pumpkins and artichokes used as votive candle holders.

Flowers arranged.

Let's eat!
The pies are baked (apple and pumpkin), 
the pudding is made, the turkey legs are in the brining mixture. 
The stuffing is prepared, the creamed corn casserole is ready to be baked,
the dough is rising for the rolls.
I have planned and prepared well and hope I can pull off tomorrow 
without any problems,
I'll try to post a recap of our Thanksgiving with a complete menu and photos
in a few days, after the turkey coma has worn off!
Have a blessed holiday and enjoy your family!

Thanks for stopping by,
