I cherish these pilgrim costumes for kids my mother made for my children. She also made Sullivan’s Indian costume. Aren’t they wonderful?
Sully is my little Indian peacemaker.
These two are so close. It makes me so happy to see them snuggle on the couch together at night. She endures Dora, and he actually asks to watch Little Women with her. (Talk about give and take.)
The Super Bridgy makes them both a little crazy at times, but they love her and are considering keeping her.

Thanksgiving is a rich holiday in our house, and this year, in honor of my husband and children’s roots and membership in the Achumawi Tribe, we are starting a new tradition. Tonight, the five of us will gather around our big dining room table – the one we eat at three times a year – for a feast of Native American foods, including venison roast and molasses bread. I can’t wait!

You can’t forsake the ties that bind
