Well I had planned to write more about Thanksgiving much sooner. I had also planned to take pictures of our lovely dinner, and of the people giving thanks. I guess I was too thankful for all the feasting to remember. Here is what our dinner started out with, Nana's china.
A lovely centerpiece made out of leftovers from my mom's garden.
That was as long as I lasted before I forgot all about photographing and got busy cooking and eating.
Another highlight of our week off for Thanksgiving was a trip to Sedona with Fran and baby Tristan.
We hiked out the Cathedral rock trail to a place where I used to Mountain bike to called Buddha Beach. It's not really a beach, but a pretty place to hang out next to the creek, and there were lots of yellow leaves and of course, beautiful red rocks.
Chris came with us, but of course he rode his bike and had a great time.
We met up with the whole Suby family (my friend Juliana's family) at Buddha Beach, and then went to visit them at their rental house nearby. We doubled up on our Thanksgiving leftovers by eating with them in the afternoon. Mmm.
Last, we decorated my mom's little agave stalk Christmas tree with ornaments and lights (a tradition that we borrowed from the Suby family).
We're back in Tucson now enjoying a warm, sunny day, and it sure doesn't feel like it's almost Christmas.
