6: November means Thanksgiving Watching the parade, pulling out the Christmas Decorations, and overeating.
7: November’s event was Thanksgiving with the Deckers at their house, our house, or even in NJ. Pat Decker brought us the tradition of stating our thankfulness. Our Thanksgiving had traditional New England foods: stuffed turkey, mashed potatoes with gravy, dinner rolls, green beans, yams with marshmallow, and cranberry sauce. Cranberry juice mixed with 7-Up was the drink. The food was simple. Pies were made a day ahead. Recipes were straight off the packages. Well made instant potatoes can be better than from scratch. Brand makes a difference! Pepperidge Farm’s stuffing already seasoned with just small chunks of celery. No one ever had room for dessert but still there was apple pie, blueberry pie, and pumpkin pie. Turkey sandwiches on buttered toast with stuffing and cranberry was a great use of the leftovers. The gingerbread men were a tradition from Mom’s Grandma “Honey”.
12: OurValentine's Day tradition was Chocolate Fondue. Winter weather brought sledding on the side hill when younger and Mountain Creek when older.
17: “Big” Nana died April 1st. Although funerals are sad they are also a time when the extended family gathers and shares stories of the past and takes photos. Here is one of our only family photos with everyone in that time period. | April
