Mom Remembers

From my mom, GrandPatty:

"Grandpa always had a yard project as part of Thanksgiving Day. In Richmond he would trim the ivy on the house, and Mrs. Sanders who lived next door, said she knew that it was time to put her turkey in the oven if Neil was trimming the ivy.

"In Oak Brook exterior illumination was the order of the day as Jon and Mike were enlisted to help Grandpa festoon the Steeplechase brick wall for the homeowners association."

What a cool idea to record all of your family Thanksgiving traditions! The yard project sounds like something my mom would do....LOL! Somehow she would have made it seem like a fun tradition to do yard work. LOL! Loved reading about your family in both today's entry and yesterday's.
