Like many families we have Thanksgiving traditions that go many years back. In our family, it goes like this,... Thanksgiving is held at our house. My husband slaves away cleaning the house; my son brings extra tables from downstairs; I typically decorate the table...
|#14: Only the Decorations|
... (and perhaps make the mashed potatoes and a salad); my sister-in-law makes green-bean casserole, her famous cheese balls, and pumpkin pies; ... and my sister brings turkey, dressing, sweet potatoes, rolls, often another type of meat, sometimes an extra dessert, and several side dishes.) Now, I used to argue with my sister about this--year after year, in fact-- thinking it just wasn't fair to her, but she was insistent, until one year I finally stopped and asked "Why?" (Not why was she insistent, but ... "Why on earth was I arguing with a sweet deal like this?!")
So, for macro-Sunday, here are a few photos of the table decorations. And my husband even helped decorate this year! What a deal!
|These four are from a pumpkin-shaped basket |
we keep out from pre-Halloween through Thanksgiving.
We've had it for many years, as you can probably tell!
|Sunflowers--Our Kansas State Flower.|
These are a little on the fake side--
but no wilting and no watering required!
|Each year I get some new small decoration for the tables--|
too large and we just move it off the table
so we can still see each other while we eat and chat!
Anyway, this year it was these carved pumpkins.
Hope YOU had an easy Thanksgiving and a happy holiday weekend! You can see more macro-photography at Studio Waterstone:
