It's time for turkey! It's time for pie!

It's time for Thanksgiving!

Don't get us wrong, we love Christmas and decorations and the holiday music (Especially our sweet Six Appeal Christmas album that we bought at the concert last Friday!), but there is a wonderful holiday that comes between Halloween and Christmas - Thanksgiving!

Yes! That wonderful holiday that offers a wonderful transition from Fall to Winter. That holiday that allows us to enjoy and massive turkey, Mom's fancy mashed potatoes made with cream cheese and parmesan cheese, green bean casserole and the pièce de résistance - the pumpkin pie. We'll give you a moment to fantasize about the meal coming your way next week... go ahead! We'll wait!

We love Thanksgiving here at AOG. We're thankful for the wonderful weather, our time with family, our comfy sweaters and the food on our table. We're especially thankful for you, dear AOG members and supporters. Your passion for the arts fuels ours and for that we say, "Thank you."

On that note, we leave you with our featured painting to celebrate the season, Norman Rockwell's "Freedom from Want". Can you imagine a better image to celebrate this fantastic holiday? Neither could we.

Much love, many thanks, and happy Thanksgiving to you all!
