We had my parents and sister over for Thanksgiving today since we are going to my in-laws tomorrow. It feels good to have all the work done and our tummies filled with good food!
It was such a gorgeous day today--the sun was shining as I cooked.
Bunny Fufu (Janae's now famous contest winning bunny) visited with my Dad before dinner.
Dinner was really good. My husband smoked a turkey on the Traeger and I cooked a ham in the oven. Both were delicious. My Mom brought her delicious rolls and french bean casserole. I made stuffing, my fattening mashed potatoes, deviled eggs ...all the must have foods for Thanksgiving. Of course I made my pie.. the one the kids love so much they beg me to make it in the summertime sometimes. You can find the recipe for the double layer pumpkin pie here. Last year I didn't take it to my Mother in law's dinner and my nephew told me I ruined his Thanksgiving. You can bet I won't make that mistake this year!
Bella loved that I used a bench for one side of the table..gave her a nice convenient place to sit and beg. Bella loves holidays that include a whole lot of food :)
Our pet family is a big thing that we are always thankful for!
There are some things that never change...
I hope this finds everyone having a wonderful thanksgiving with family and friends. Tomorrow our celebration continues at my Mother in law's house..and I will be bringing a pie!
One thing I am especially thankful for is my blogging friends. My life has been so enriched by you!
