Thanksgiving Highlights

It was a very good Thanksgiving at our house. The grandparents came from Georgia, bearing gingerbread men.... furniture for Katie made by Grandpa...

and making cornbread dressing with "helpers".
Add some smoked turkey and eighteen casseroles, and you've got yourself a great time. We had twelve people for dinner, which is a formidable task when you only own eight chairs, but it was really fun. My cousin and his family came over, who I hadn't seen in years, and the kids ran and played while the adults chatted over coffee and red velvet cake.

This weekend it's cold and rainy; perfect weather for turkey soup, watching movies by a fake fire, and tree-decorating while listening to James Taylor Christmas music.

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!


  1. Yay! I've been waiting to see you post again :-D Sounds like a great time, and that's a LOTTA casseroles!

  2. Glad y'all had a good time! 18 casseroles??? Sounds like you don't have to cook for a while! We have also been eating leftovers, but we will be done with them by tomorrow, probably. Love you!

  3. Disclaimer: number of casseroles may have been slightly exaggerated for effect. It just seemed like that many when I tried to put them back in the fridge.

  4. I'm glad you had such a lovely Thanksgiving. Mine was beautiful too. :)

  5. Too funny about the casseroles. I HATE trying to find room in the fridge for all the leftovers, but I do love not having to cook while we eat all of them!!

    That doll house is awesome!!

  6. sounds like a wonderful time. i LOVE cornbread stuffing.
