Preparations have been underway for several days.
We have family and friends coming over for Thanksgiving dinner :)
A short drive to the local market and soon the mini is overflowing
with good things to eat. Let the feasting begin. We are so blessed.
We enjoyed a houseful of dear family and friends this year. We had three delicious turkeys to choose from and scrumptious sides of all of our favorites. Missing those loved ones who were far away.
Here are a few photos that tell our Thanksgiving story. I was so busy preparing and enjoying that camera didn't get picked up too much. We had 30+ for dinner and most everyone stayed at least one night. We had the best time playing Pictionary Thanksgiving evening. We also had some great "funniest home videos" to share. We all not only had very healthy helpings of delicious food - but our share of laughter as well. Sweet memories to tuck away. The last holiday for awhile with our nephew, Tyler who leaves shortly for his mission in San Antonio. We were truly blessed.
It was so wonderful to have two ovens this year!!
Cute nut cups...remembering our Pilgrim Ancestors, the Whites.
zzzzzzz right where Grandpa and Grandma should be after a lovely meal with family.
And the pies...
Coconut Cream, Pumpkin, Apple, Berry,
Banana, Chocolate Chip Cheese Cake and Lemon Meringue
We deemed Grandma Joan's Berry Pie as the winner.
There was only one small sliver left.
Hey...who got that last piece??
And now our house is very quiet.
We certainly enjoyed having it full to the brim!
The studio was well broken in.
Hope you can come visit soon!!
