We had a fantastic Thanksgiving yesterday! Daddy Russ and I hosted it at our house for his family and my grandparents (Nannie and Papa). Tomorrow we are going my to my mom’s and stepfather’s hous for my family’s BIG Thanksgiving so my Thanksgiving isn’t officially over! Yay!
We had a very full day yesterday. We have some friends through Daddy Russ’ work that hosts a Turkey Fry every year. It’s so much fun and we had a wonderful time visiting with everyone while at least 10 fryers cooked everyone’s turkeys. So we woke up early to head over there. I stayed for a little bit with Luke and then came home to cook lunch. I just love having people over, particularly family. It’s so gratifying to just watch everyone eating the meal that you prepared and just having a great time visiting with one another and being thankful for each other. I have to say though today I feel like I ate way too much!! I’m pretty tired today so Luke and I have being laying low. I pretty much feel exactly like Luke in this picture!
I have a problem with always making too much! No matter how hard I try I just can’t seem to estimate the amount of food correctly.
Pumpkin pie and pecan pie for your sweet tooth!
One of my favorite times of the whole day was watching Luke and his cousins running around my house and playing together. Children’s laughter is just so uninhibited. I also spent some really special time just sitting with my sister-in-law and my Nannie visiting. I’m so lucky to have a wonderful relationship with my sister-in-law. We get along so well and I always love talking with her!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
