The notion of home means something different for everyone. As part of our Thanksgiving series on the home, you've been sending in the images and sounds of the things the invoke home to you.
For some of you, home is the company you share. To Erin in Dearborn, Mich. and Nicholas in Joplin, Mo., that's a cat. To Michael in West Palm Beach, Fla., it's a human being — his girlfriend, Laura.
A typical image in a home ideal is a comforting hearth. That's the case in real life for Alexsis in Ossining, NY, who sent us a video of her crackling fireplace.
For Carl in Detroit, Mich., home is something he can take with him: his wind chimes. He just moved to a new neighborhood and he says the new house wasn't a home until the wind chimes were up on the back porch.
And for Nik in Milwaukee, home is "the smell of warm waffles & syrup, the sound of Saturday morning cartoons, the glint of sunshine streaming through the curtains."
Here are some of the images and sounds you've sent us.

Carl Gladstone from Detroit, Mich.
Just moved to Corktown, Detroit. But our new house wasn't our new home until we got the wind chimes up on the back porch. Now all the residents both housed and homeless can enjoy them.
Jean-Marc Russ from New York, NY
Having recently moved from Australia, this is the sound that most identifies my New York life, moving into Winter. It's the sound of my central heating system, as the boilers fire up all over Manhattan.
Nicholas Lawson from Joplin, Mo.
I know I'm home when my cat MJ comes and greets me.
Steve, from Troy, Mich.
Happy Thanksgiving, it was our last Thanksgiving in our home of 20 years. It was a very memorial one. We have been foreclosed on but we are thankful we are all healthy and together.
