Thanksgiving recap

Wednesday, November 30, 2011

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and took time to reflect on all the things they have to be thankful for! I know we did! We spent ours visiting my aunt and uncle who live in a secluded home in the woods in a small NC town! The kids always love playing there b/c they get a chance to run and play in the woods which is not something we can do at home. Ella enjoyed going on little hikes and nature walks, Halle and Hayden enjoyed the rope's the simple things in life that are the most fun. My uncle now has chickens so the kids found it amusing to toss feed to them and chase them around a bit, lol! I enjoyed playing a few games of Rummy with my cousin, her boyfriend and college roommate. I haven't played Rummy in probably 10 years...but it was kind of like riding a bike. I lost though, lol! And Todd, I think he just enjoyed relaxing, playing with the kids, and watching a little football! The food was great too, as always. We had a smorgasbord of delicious choices including turkey (of course), mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, corn casserole, butternut squash souffle, deviled eggs, 2 potato salads, the best stuffing ever, green bean casserole, my mom's cranberry jello mould, a veggie casserole, broccoli cheese casserole, homemade rolls & homemade bread. Then there were desserts...pumpkin pie, pecan pie, my pumpkin cheesecake, homemade cinnamon rolls and reeses peanut butter cup pie/cake (whatever it was it was GOOOOD!). The weather couldn't have been more beautiful...around 70 degrees and sunny! Perfect! It was a wonderful day spent with family! I didn't take too many photos...I was too busy enjoying my family! Here are a few I did snap. How was your Thanksgiving?!
