Thanksgiving in DC

For the past few years we have spent Thanksgiving on the Eastern Shore with Mark and his Dad's side fo the family! It is a wonderful time and I love seeing his cousins. This year hwoever, thr crowd dropped to 6 and we couldn't spend the night so we decided to relocate the Friday after Thanksgiving lasagna night to DC! It was exciting tog et to host Mark's parents and grandparents in our new apartment and to finally get to play hostess. (We still don't have a kitchen table so we had to borrow some folding tables for the occasion - this is also why we have not had many people over for meals since we moved!)

We drove around the tidal basin, got out by the Lincoln, visited the Korean War memorial and then walked along the (empty) reflecting pool to the WWII Monument. The wind was fierce, making the walk quite brisk, but spending time with family was great.

After our walk, we went back to the house for dinner. Mike and Kelsey's wedding in October inspired a bit of the table decor as I used their place card holders for my table settings. The beautiful green runner was a gift from our friends Kyle and Courtney and the napkins were a wedding gift from my bridesmaids. Lots of love went into this table and I loved how it turned out!

Oh yeah, and the lasagna was pretty good too!
