Thanksgiving Day

Started with this.  'Cause you know nothin' would have happened without it!

Decorated the table with Crafts by Erin

Set the mood with this yummy candle!
Mia Bella's Hot Orange Danish (Think orange tootsie pop.)

Had a quick snack for energy.

Got down to this.

Erin enjoyed cracking the eggs.  No shells in here!

Dishing it up.

Overfilled the pans.

It would have helped if I'd paid attention & greased the pans but alas, this was an exercise in fun with Erin.  After we discovered this problem, we went out for a light lunch since we eat pretty late in our house.  David & I decided to go shopping & pick up a few last minutes items for our meal.

When we got home, I set the table so we could enjoy some relaxation before David started cooking.  He prepared a wonderful meal for us - Cornish game hens, stuffing, roasted potatoes & onion, mashed sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, corn on the cob, salad & crescent rolls followed by a quick apple crisp for dessert.

The table looked so lovely that David decided to capture it on his camera.  And, if I knew where the darn camera was, I'd have uploaded pics.  Oh well. 

In the end, this is what I am thankful for.  Each & every day.

Still want to see pics of that table...sounds so good. My baby Olivia and I were sick with the flu and missed Thanksgiving this year. I was sad to miss the first with O as she came home from China in July.
