Thanksgiving 2012

Thanksgiving 2012

Mom and Dad hosted our Thanksgiving dinner again this year, with help from my sister, Julie and I. We had 13 for dinner, plus a take-out for Peter's mom, and plenty of left-overs.
Take a peak at our Thanksgiving!
I made place cards for the tables

***making my most favorite Thanksgiving dish.....the dressing.

some parade watching
our NEW tradition: paper plates!!!!!!!
 
So, after all these years, we finally wised up and bought throw-away dinnerware. We'll never, ever, ever......use china again! We are even talking about ditching the casserole dishes next year, and baking in throw-away aluminum pans. :O) The tables looked so pretty, and we spent very little time cleaning up afterwards.

Hi Susan,
Thanks for sharing beautiful pictures. Throw-away plates are helpful to save energy and time. Good idea.
