Scenes from our Thanksgiving

Food
Thanksgiving arrived with cold weather and even the possibility of some snow! We spent the morning watching the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade and eating snacks. I made deviled eggs, glazed meatballs and cheeseballs and crackers.

Cheeseballs
This was the first time I've ever made cheeseballs. I used cream cheese, ranch dressing mix, worcester sauce, and garlic powder.

Acorns
I set out a few more Autumn decorations. Brenda at Country Romance sent me some special acorns from her home, a small silver dish and pretty doily.

Pinecones
She also sent me this beautiful chest which I filled with pinecones. Thank you, Brenda!

Table
After lunch we went to Phillip's parent's home for Thanksgiving dinner. There were 17 of us and we all had a wonderful time together. The food was delicious and we had fun playing games after dinner.

Dessert
Friday night everyone came over to our house for another Thanksgiving dinner. More visiting, laughing and games. Oh, and dessert. ;0)

Pie
Before several family members get on a plane to go back home, we are having a family portrait taken tomorrow afternoon. It has been wonderful to have everyone together again!

Thank you for looking at the scenes from our Thanksgiving!

Vicky said...

What a lovely family day! And how beautifully you prepared. I have to say I let the beautifying of my house slip, because I feel that I'm the only woman in a houseful of men, etc. But when I actually do anything, they are all very appreciative of it, and you inspire me to make more effort. Thank you.
