This year our Thanksgiving was SUPER SPECIAL!! Why? Because EVERYONE was there!! I do want to explain that we hosted Thanksgiving early this year because some in our family go to other places on the actual Thanksgiving day. We are always flexible when holidays roll around!
The fam arrived and it was the usual- the kids played with Gma’s toys and the adults gathered around the snacks, I mean the kitchen island, and talked stocks, sports, recipes, home repair, etc.
The main event was served at 4:00 pm that day and we ran the usual buffet of turkey, potatoes, noodles, green bean casserole, rolls, broccoli salad, and my favorite…pretzel salad! The desserts were plentiful, too. Apple pie, pumpkin cake, and pumpkin cheesecake with caramel sauce were demolished after dinner.
I forgot to mention that it was our son’s actual birthday that day, so we serenaded him with some harmonious happy birthday songs!
We had 2 new members of the family at the dinner. Our new puppy was there, but more importantly, our new granddaughter was there- she was recently adopted from Colombia. It was fun to watch her experience new foods and new people.
As always, if you went home hungry it was your own fault. Hahaha!!
An extra special blessing was having my parents there. My parents make homemade noodles, rolls, and jam. Mom surprised us by bringing my favorite pretzel salad- YUM!! Here they are with their 4 grandchildren (all adults now.)
I hope YOU had an amazing day!!
Oh….. and this happened after everyone left!! SO CUTE!!!
