Sassy was already finished when I got to her with the camera

The turkey did its magic.  Passed out. 
 Well here I am up a 4 o'clock in the morning on black friday.  Not because I'm hitting all the sales (I honestly saw nothing worth while that I knew I would get, so why bother).  No I'm up because my phone woke me up (nothing exciting I promise).  So I figure hell why not share another Thanksgiving Tradition with the world.  Its kind of a silly one.  So the family dogs are like...well like family and what does the family get on T-day... Food.  So a silly family tradition in our house is that we make the dogs plates (on the china) for them to enjoy thanksgiving dinner after we are done.  This year was Patches first Thanksgiving with us so I took pictures and again I figure I will scrapbook my silly tradition.  The tough part about it for me was it was our first thanksgiving without Buster.  Even though I had to make the same amount of plates as last year I still felt the empty space.  I am a sappy, sentimental person and Buster was by far my best friend.  I literally would talk to him when I felt I couldn't talk to anyone else and he always just sat there and listened and let my just cry on his shoulder.  Penny and Patches don't sit still let alone listen on let me cry to them.  There will never be another Buster in this world.  I'm thankful that he's not suffering anymore and that I had so many years to cry on his shoulder without judgement, but I'm sad that he's not here for me to stop and just lay with him during my day or just pat him on the head and tell him I love him.  I hope someday it will be easier, but at the moment I'm not sure it will ever be.
RIP Buster I miss you

Well its Thanksgiving eve and I completed my big thanksgiving tradition.  Being the baker in the family I had to bake the pies.  I'm known for my french style Apple pie and thanksgiving wouldn't be the same with out it.  So today I set out to do my baking.  I decided to document it this year with pictures so that I can actually scrapbook it.  So tomorrow is the big day of family, the parade, and that lovely bird with all the fixings.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! Hope its a great one and remember tell those you are thankful for that you are thankful for them because you never know what next year will bring and who will be sitting around the table or missing from it.  Its amazing what a year can bring.
