Thanksgiving

Christmas is only 12 days away and I’m just now posting about Thanksgiving!  This has been such a busy month but we are loving this season of family, fun, and celebrations!

We had a great, low-key, Thanksgiving in Tulsa.

It has become a tradition that we have my family over on Thanksgiving Eve.  My Uncle (Mom’s Brother) Danny, and his son, Dillon, try to come every year for Thanksgiving and it is the one time of year that we get to see them.  The family came over on Wednesday night and we served Hobo Stew and cornbread.  Then we watched the Thanksgiving episode of “Modern Family” which is currently our favoroite show.

Dillon is SO good with Emma and Foster.  You would think he has younger siblings, but he doesn’t.  He played with my kids non-stop for 3 hours.  They played hide-and-seek, played trains, even baby dolls.  Emma and Foster just adored him!

On Thursday morning we all go to my Mom’s house where she and Judy always prepare a phenomenol Thanksgiving Feast- one that could be compared to Martha Stewart’s!

Here is the most amazing, tender turkey ever!

Waiting in line for dessert… my Mom’s pumpkin chiffon pie is always a huge hit.  It was my Great-Aunt Auntie’s recipe and I’m so glad she passed it down to my Mom!

I really wish I had gotten more pictures on Thanksgiving Day!  Emma was wearing a dress that was mine when I was little.  Auntie made me a dress with removable patches for the different holidays and Emma is wearing the Turkey patch. :)

I had to work at the hospital on Thanksgiving evening.  It was very hard to leave the comfort of my Mom’s house and my family to head to work but luckily it was only for a few hours.

We have so much to be thankful for and I praise God for our blessings!
