It must have been freezing cold when we cut down the tree that year. You can tell by the way the kids are dressed that in south Georgia, we are never ready for cold weather.
Worth is wearing a Chicago Bears hat (he was a big fan), MY acid wash jean jacket, and a weird assortment of sweatpants/sweatshirts. He is waving that saw around, so proud of his lumbering skills.
I don't even know what to tell you about Kate. She looks like a babushka-wearing old woman from some poor eastern European country. Clearly she is OVER getting the tree but it didn't scar her; she insists on a live tree every year, at my house AND hers.

I don't even know what to say about this Thanksgiving.
Some things are as they should be. Kate, Jay, and Bo are with his Alabama family; Worth and his crew are with Ashley's family. E.W. and I are thankful that our kids married into families who love them unconditionally and who have become our families as well.
E.W. is spending the day with his folks while I'm with mama (it's her first Thanksgiving without daddy AND her first birthday without him as well). While we'd love to be together, it just seems as if this is the best plan right now. We are thankful for that, too.

I've never been especially happy with our sofa. A very long time ago we had the furniture store bring it out on approval. It's been here ever since and a new sofa was a long way down on the household wish list.
A couple of months ago, I saw a friend's post on Facebook. The camel-back sofa her mama (a lovely southern woman) had given her forty years ago needed a new home. I was more than happy to oblige.
She and her husband brought it over and although I was hoping to use it as is, the color just would not blend with the rest of the furniture in the living room. After scouting and ordering fabric, then connecting with another friend's upholsterer, I am happy to report that our new-to-us sofa is content in its new home (although I have no idea why the walls look so yellow in photographs). Pillows aren't finished yet, but I'm loving it already.
Oh, and Poof has moved on to another home, too, where it will be appreciated and loved.
