My photo
I am a girl/woman/human who has random thoughts. Sometimes you can find me here rambling, other times i might have useful stuff to say. For the most part, my friends and family can see what I might be up to in the days events. Or, for sake of sakes, its all made up... only i know.. and MAYBE a select few of you! Either way~ I am an American living in Australia. Oh, and any photo you see on this blog IS NOT FOR YOUR USE. If I have taken the photo myself or have permission to use it, YOU CAN NOT USE IT FOR YOURSELF. So be warned... and just dont use my damn photos.

Thanksgiving 2009

What a gorgeous day! It was hot as anything outside, reaching into the 40 degrees CELCIUS mark, so our usual eating outside didnt occur… it was much too hot!

After a mad dash of rearranging the tables, seating, and setting up fans, the first ding dong of the doorbell rang just as I plugged in the last fan. Whew.. made it in time!

This year, mom and I did majority of the baking the day before. Our thinking was to be more prepared, and have a more relaxing day with the people we love to share our special day with. 

So, here’s some photos of the day.. I didnt get any of the food.. wonder how that happened? But, I did happen to see a funny face in a butter spotch… can you see it or am I delirious from all the baking?


We had some cute decorations…


IMG_2894 Great decorations sent from a very special aunt in the US… since Australia doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving, decorations are nil to find here.

and finally… time for a nap….


We loved having our “extended family” to celebrate the day with us. We are ever so thankful for all of you.

Must add that i couldn't have done it without you! You make Thanksgiving so very special. Lots of hard work goes into the days celebration. AND by the way..your pecan bars are to DIE FOR! They're all gone soooo feel free to make another batch when the urge hits! Love you, mom
