This last weekend I headed down to Málaga for Thanksgiving with the American Crew. Hans and Jennifer and kids from Arizona; Dan, Tara and Family from Port Angeles; and no idea where the Thorndikes come from…

These guys are all amazing cooks, so I didn’t every offer to do any more than chop veggies with detailed instructions, but I did my research and thanks to a funky toddlers craft webpage I came up with a Thanksgiving gift for everyone – with their ow fluffy Turkey tails.

Since I’m not doing the family Christmas this year – Thanksgiving was just what I needed: a huge family meal, kids everywhere, way too much food, inelegant sufficiency, parked on the couch before a wander down to the park to make space before the second shift of eating – Pie for everyone… coffee, tea and spending the afternoon into the evening with friends until you are all crashed out, only to get up the next morning and start on the left overs (and being in Málaga, a break from the cold!).

Sunday morning, a slow start to eggs and a cuppa before heading to the rumpus room for home church. Slice of heaven. By the time I headed back up the freeway the next day, I felt well and truly refueled, family time, hang time with really great people, good food and being loved. Ahh the holidays!
