Thanksgiving 2016

Thanksgiving pie

This holiday began to a slightly chaotic start, but that isn’t anything out of the ordinary for my family. The day before the big Thanksgiving meal, a family member ended up in the hospital after cutting their hand on wine glasses, and therefore all the food had to be made the morning of by all the cousins. Having everyone in the kitchen and doing their part made the meal more intimate and exciting for everyone.

We took plastic candle votives and tied some rope around it to change the lighting effect (as seen on the right). We also used small mason jars to hold tea lights
