Thanksgiving 101


This year my mother dear taught me all the how-to's for all the dishes! ~Whew! ~ how the hay did my mum do all that on her own all those years? So mother, a sincere, thanks & props to you! There was some frustration in the kitchen... I think I was a distraction to my mum's concentration to get things right at times... but it all came out just fine.

This year my sisters went to their spouse's families, so it was just my parents, my brother, and me. Taylor got called out on Monday to work in New Mexico, i had low expectations that he would be released and be home for the holiday. Poor Taylor, luckily he and his co-worker found a place to eat for the holiday. I really wanted him to be home...Oh well. I love him soo much, He amazes me, with all he that he does. I admire him so much.

I was finally able to use my GORGEOUS china my mother-in-law graciously let me pick out as one of my wedding gifts! (Thanks Janna!) It was just stunning! I'm very grateful for my husband and my whole family. I'm grateful to the Lord for all he has given me. ♥ ♥ ♥

The table & china look beautiful. Hurley is so cute in that picture with you. Yup--Thanksgiving dinner is a lot of work and stressful, too, when you want everything to come out just right!!!
