PILGRIMS + indians

Since our New York family has a yearly tradition of an Indian group shot when they gather for Thanksgiving festivities...

we decided to counter with a pilgrim shot this year.

My mom & my sister constructed little bonnets & hats out of scrapbook paper, filled some baskets with bread & fruit, & substituted a chicken costume for our pup in lieu of a turkey outfit. It was pretty windy yesterday in Georgia & best we tried we couldn't get Hazel to face the camera, but maybe next year we will perfect the shot. Perfection was attained, however, in the form of a 26 pound turkey.

We ate & then we rested like this...

Very thankful for a great holiday with my family & weeks of leftover turkey sandwiches in my future.
