Tal, Savannah, and I gave thanks for family, food, and fellowship as we celebrated Thanksgiving in Salter Path.
After a yummy Thanksgiving dinner, Tal's family surprised me with cake to celebrate my recent National Board certification. I was so touched by their thoughtfulness!
Tal's mom baked red velvet cake inside mason jars, topped it with chocolate ganache, and then attached a spoon. Wasn't Barbara so creative?!
Savannah loved the red velvet cake!

As always, Savannah loved swinging in HER swing

Don't they have gorgeous views from their backyard?!
Benny and EJ's house was beautifully decorated for Christmas:
As an early Christmas present,
Aunt EJ gave Savannah a jumbo coloring book:

Savannah loved playing Uncle Benny's guitar:
Sausage Balls and Christmas Cookies
Tal fried shrimp on Benny and EJ's deck:
In keeping with Thanksgiving tradition, our family ate a low country boil...complete with corn on the cob, sausage, potatoes, and boiled shrimp:
We also ate boiled snow crab legs (a first for me and Savannah!). Thanks to Grandma Barbara who showed me and Savannah how to crack the legs and pull out the meat:
It was a wonderful evening filled with food, family, and fellowship!
