Just a little bit about our Thanksgiving.......

Ok, so I changed the look of my blog again, thanks to my sister. She helped me after everything was done on Thanksgiving Day/night. I do love this new look, it's for Christmas, and I may even keep it for winter.

Our Thanksgiving was wonderful! The food was delicious, and the fellowship with our family was wonderful. We all missed dad, but all in all the day went very well. Mom looked great, and she really helped my sister with the dinner. The kids all played so nicely, they all get a long so well together. We sat by the fire, watched the "Cowboys", my hubby's favorite team! The turkey was moist and delicious, we had mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, two kinds of stuffing, one sausage with cranberry's and pecans, and one plain...which one do you think I went for? Yes, you are correct, the sausage with cranberry and pecans....yum!!! My sister made green beans with bacon, corn spoon bread, and then of course rolls. My sister-in-law Beth, made her delicious pumpkin bread, which I just love. Mom made the pies, of course, just like she always does. This time she put sugar in the apple pie, thanks mom! Lately, she wouldn't add sugar to her apple pie when dad was still here, but honestly, it never was very good that way:( She also made pumpkin pie, and I made my pecan pie, which I thought was too sweet, so I probably won't be making that pie anymore. My sister-in-law Beth, made these delicious mini chocolate cheesecakes, they were delicious, and I love cheesecake! But lately, I'm having a problem with sweet foods, ever since I've been watching my carbs, and sweet intake, I just don't care for sweet foods......which is very strange for me, since I've always been a sweet lover. Enough about that, afterwards what a treat, my sister set up a special activity for us.....decorating gingerbread houses!!! We used graham crackers already formed into houses (thanks Lois and Phil) and then we all went to town decorating our little houses. The kids absolutely LOVED it. It was a true highlight of our holiday. Hope your Thanksgiving was as special as ours! Enjoy the pictures.
