Thanksgiving Dinner for 25

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday as it involves good friends and family and a menu I adore....and I find not hard to cook.....and no presents are involved!
This was our Thanksgiving dinner...I had someone ask if it was a "sit down" response was "I have enough chairs for everyone to "sit down" after you "dip up" your plate! " so there...hope everyone had a great day....

Our first snow

Not only is it our first snow of the season, it is Sparty's first snow as well....he seemed to not mind the snow and I could not get him to come in as he was eating the snow.....just like a kid!

ABC Wednesday R is for Railwalk

It is ABC Wednesday-- here is my contribution. This is the train station near me that takes you downtown to Chicago. The village has worked very hard to make this appealing so homeowners might want to buy near the railyway or railwalk!
Thanks to Denise for hosting ABC Wednesday!
