Thanks and Giving: Round Two

 We had a wonderful road trip to one of the most relaxing places I know. I mean, it doesn't get much more perfect than right here...

We finally got to meet lil Tucker. He stole all of our hearts in a matter of minutes. 

Especially hers.  

Occasionally Oliver even tolerated the little guy.

Thanksgiving morning started with a five mile Turkey Trot along the country roads of Chazy. It ended with a group of friends meeting up at a wood working shop with deviled eggs, chocolate peanut butter fudge and bloody mary's!

We headed over to Uncle Lee and Aunt Kim's house for Thanksgiving Dinner. It was great to be surrounded by family and my best friend. It was a very comfortable and cozy dinner. Everything was very much homemade and fresh. Out of the twenty eight Thanksgiving dinner's I've had, I remember this one the most (from what I can actually remember) as the most farm fresh natural Thanksgiving meal. Besides from the gravy, which is a must for most people, everything else was healthy and fresh.

Uncle Lee and his sous chef, Aunt Nan, carved the beautiful turkey....

while everyone else gathered around the table for this amazing feast.

What a beautiful spread it was!

The best part, I didn't over eat. One plate and I was done! It was so good, and I was so satisfied  I didn't need to fill my belly to that uncomfortable state. I believe it was from all of the fresh vegetables registering with my brain. 

Sara, Mom and Dad seemed pretty happy too!

The dessert was out of this world amazing. Five different options was four too many for me to choose from. I ended up only have a piece of the Maple Pumpkin Cheesecake (left).

Aunt Kim found and pressed leaves a couple of months ago for the place cards.

They were beautiful!

Oliver and I had a wonderful relaxing and somehow exhausting weekend. Between the early mornings, long runs in the vineyard, Black Friday shopping, movies and puzzles, we are ready for a bit of relaxation.

And Little Tucker gets to meet his new home. Good luck Tuck!
