We enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner at Helen's (the fine dining restaurant at 7 Springs).It was so beautiful inside. The fire was roaring, they were decorated for Christmas and we saw all our favorite wait staff that we closed down the bar with last night!! They treated us to a round of drinks and also a TO DIE for piece of chocolate cake.
- mashed potatoes
- sweet potatoes
- crab imperial
- green beans
- breaded cauliflower
- 3 types of stuffing (sausage, portabello and pine nut)
- homemade noodles
Then...we each had desert. Todd had pumpkin pie and I had apple pie with vanilla ice cream. We enjoyed a bottle of Ferari Chardonnay and I had an Earl Grey tea with desert. It was heavenly....but we are soooo stuffed now!!
This year, we are both very thankful to be nearing the completion of our dossier to China. We meet with our social worker next week to review our home study, and we are in the process of certifying and authenticating our documents. I am also waiting for my police clearance for child abuse from the UK. We one step closer each day, and that is something we are both VERY thankful for!!
...now if 'Winston' our Old English Sheep Dog would just PASS the leather leash he ate this morning while we were at breakfast....we would be even more thankful!! I think it's going to be a very LONG night....

This was the view from the balcony off the family room. There was so much fog all day, we couldn't even see the slopes.

We are headed to 7 Springs this week for Thanksgiving and a little R & R. It's been a busy week at work for us both, and we can't wait to pack up the car, the dogs and off we go!! Of course our work lap tops are going with us...but there will be plenty of time to RELAX in the mountains. We are going to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner at Helen's restaurant with table side carving and a nice bottle of wine...just the two of us!!
Hope you have a great week, Happy Thanksgiving!!
