Our Thanksgiving

"In everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus."

1 Thessalonians 5:18

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and I hope all of my sweet readers did too!

We hosted Thanksgiving at our home this year.

Here is my Mom "Grandma Robbie" and our little Robert. My Mom crocheted this adorable little turkey hat for Robbie to wear.

Here is my little man ready to eat!!! Showing off his sippy cup skills for all the Grandparents!

Our Thanksgiving table setting! I gave each person a tiny frame with a photo of them holding Robert. This was a nice little gift as well as a way for each guest to see where they were sitting.

Our Dining room

Now, time for the good stuff . . . THE FOOD!! I made a 29 lbs turkey!!! I also made stuffing and my famous cheesy potatoes. My Mom made her green bean casserole and candied sweet potatoes. My Mother In-law, Carla, made a fabulous pecan pie and her corn pudding! We also had hot buttery rolls, pumpkin and cherry pie, wine and SO much more!!

More food, glorious food!
