Thanksgiving Past and Present

This week we celebrated Thanksgiving here in the United States. In honor of it, I found some photos taken by my father (who always tried to get the quintessential shot, whilst not letting the turkey get too cold).

This Thanksgiving, we celebrated with my husband’s family, and I am so thankful we could all be together.
