Thanksgiving Dinner At The Souto Household 2016

Thanksgiving Dinner At The Souto Household 2016.  Thanksgiving at the Souto house is a day of family, but this Thanksgiving there was a little twist to our Thanksgiving dinner.  Thanksgiving dinner was at the Souto Household, but it was at my youngest son's house it was held at instead of mine.

With my oldest son moving down to Pickens, South Carolina, and not being able to be with us, my youngest son Brandon and his wife Leah wanted to have us and her parents over for Thanksgiving dinner.  So we broke from our long tradition of having Thanksgiving dinner at my house, and we began what may be a new tradition.

My wife always made sure Thanksgiving dinner was special, and Brandon and Leah did an excellent job of making sure Thanksgiving dinner at their house would be equally as special.   They even made sure there would be enough leftovers for everyone to take home with them.

I hope yesterday was a special Thanksgiving Day for everyone here in ActiveRain, as it was for me and my family.  May all of you be blessed, and enjoy each moment you can with those who are close to you. Those are the best blessings of all, and what I am truly thankful for.

Thanksgiving Is A Family day at the Souto House no matter witch Souto is hosting it.  I hope yesterday was as special a day for your family as it was for mine.

Yesterday was indeed a lovely day with 3 of my children plus a significant other sitting round my table.  It was our first Thanksgiving without my significant other so it was kind of bitter sweet,  he was with us in spirit.

I've never had turkey with bacon wrapped around it, but it looks great!  Everything is better with bacon - and it sounds like you had a great time with a new table to enjoy your meal.

I've had Thanksgiving at my home for the last several years.  But, I envision a day when it may be held at one of my children's homes.

I would be happy to let someone else take over the holiday entertaining but all are too willing to keep it where it is.

Wonderful George and traditions always need a bit of 'sprucing' up and it looks like yours too was wonderful.

George, there comes a time when the elders need to pass the torch and let the younger generation carry over family traditions.  Your son and his wife carried the torch well.  Gobble Gobble 

Now, for the record ... I am in no way implying that you and/or your wife as "old".

Hi George...nothing wrong with starting some new traditions... and it doesn't mean you can't go back to the old ones on occasion as well.
