Our First Thanksgiving in our Little House in the Big Woods

 Elijah's Blackberry Pie

 The sun was really bright!!

 Our Thanksgiving, the first one in our new house . As we ate I shared again with our children the story of my family's 'first Thanksgiving' and how some of these dishes came to be part of our traditions. My mom's mom, Honey, always cooked a big Sunday dinner for us after church. She loved to cook and always cooked for Thanksgiving and every holiday. After she passed away in 1984 my Mama (who has never liked to cook) was now tasked with cooking her first turkey...her first 'big meal'... Many of the dishes Tony and I have as part of our Thanksgiving are from that first Thanksgiving Mama made
