Happy Thanksgiving in Pictures

Happy Thanksgiving!  I am loving being in east Texas with my family.  We are so full after a wonderful Thanksgiving meal.  Right now most everyone is napping in preparation for the big game this evening (gig 'em!).  Below are pictures of our day so far!

the best cherry pie with a festive leaf crust

Mom's lettuce for our salad  (she is quite a little farmer!)

 We've just got to have a gun nearby for any squirrels that might make their way into the back yard.

the fryer and his apprentices

Mom's pretty table

gourds from the Dallas farmers market and cute place cards


cheddar pecan shortbread in festive shapes


Is this not the all-time cutest outfit you have ever seen?

delicious desserts: lemon curd pound cake, cherry pie, and mini pecan pies

the feast: turkey, ham, jezabel sauce, homemade cranberry relish, dressing, corn casserole, broccoli and rice casserole, sweet potatoes in orange cups, green bean casserole, salad, and rolls
my plate - and I ate every bit of it!

It has been a wonderful day, and I am so thankful that God blessed me with an amazing husband and family to spend the day with! 

"Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.  For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations."  Psalm 100:4-5
