Our Thanksgiving....

Our Thanksgiving was good, except DH wasn't at home. The meal was good. We actually had it all done at 1:10. Which is good because I said we'd eat at about 1. I'm usually running behind more than that so I did GOOD this year! The kids and I had been talking about what we are thankful for leading up to Thanksgiving. I try explaining why we celebrate the holidays that we celebrate. Trying to teach them right anyway.

I didn't make the Pumpkin Crunch Cake like I had wanted to. I made just the Holy Cow Cakes instead. We definately needed something chocolate. So, the desserts were Holy Cow Cake, Pumpkin Pie, Pecan Pie, Mincemeat Pie and Jello with fruit and marshmallows. So, there was plenty of desserts to eat.

The Sweet Potatoes were right up there on my list with the ham. Oh it was good! I made the ham with brown sugar and pineapples. I didn't have the rings of pineapple like my mom has always used. I had chunks so I just used those and put toothpicks in them to hold them onto my ham. I pressed some brown sugar on it and then poured the pineapple juice over the top. It was so good!

The turkey was good. I don't usually eat much of it. My DH is the turkey fan in our house! I could take it or leave it and he's that way about ham.

My DMIL was here, my parents, my brother, my sister and her boyfriend and their dog were here. The kids enjoyed getting to see everyone. They really liked playing with the dog. Dobbie was a hit I do believe.

That's it for our Thanksgiving.
