Thanksgiving at the Ritz-Carlton in Half Moon Bay

       Thanksgiving day was gorgeous. It was sunny and warm and we felt so happy to be able to spend part of the holiday with the Genet family at the Ritz-Carlton in Half Moon Bay!

      There was delicious food, art projects, a menorah lighting and singing, and also a fun kids project, where each kiddo got "cash" and could pick out which farm animal they were going to buy for a family in need through the non-profit, Heifer. What a great learning and giving experience for all these little ones :)

       Cheryl's family gatherings are always filled with beautiful details, like custom backpacks for the grandkids and lovely floral centerpieces by De Young Flowers. We just had to share some holiday joy and these photos are brimming with it! Enjoy!
