Thanksgiving was such a wonderful day this year.
Dinner was delicious.
What was on the menu you ask?
Sweet Potato Souffle’
Mashed Potatoes and Gravy
Pumpkin Pie and Whipping Cream
Pecan Pie Bars and Icecream
The table decorations were so fun and eclectic. (pictures taken by Krysta Moes)
I used a menagerie of dishes.
Complete with a name card and napkin ring.
Krysta helped me set the tables, and snapped the majority of all the pictures.
It was so nice to have someone here to help with that.
The boys table turned out adorable.
I think the boys enjoyed sitting by themselves.
We enjoyed such a nice relaxing meal.
As we shared what we were thankful for I was amazed as the majority of thankfuls were for Family and Friends.
Isaac however, was thankful for his Mac truck.
I am thankful for a day to reflect on all the blessings we have been given.
I am also thankful for my time spent away from home that has forced me to learn how to cook a turkey and a complete Thanksgiving meal. This was our 7th Thanksgiving away from home. It is hard to be away from our family, but I am thankful that I can recreate the feelings I felt as a child in my own home.
What a wonderful tradition we have to celebrate our blessings by preparing the best meal we can make.
Blessings are certainly worth celebrating.
I also love that we only eat this food together once a year. It makes the meal even more special.
It was fun to share it with the Moes family.
After dinner, we loaded everyone up for a movie. We saw Tangled; it was adorable.
After the movie, we cleaned up, had dessert and put the kids to bed.
The adults enjoyed some time doing what we love; playing cards.
The whole weekend was so much fun.
I am glad we have a reason to celebrate and good friends to celebrate with.
