We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner at my youngest son and his family's home. I use to have the dinner at my home until I just couldn't keep up with it anymore ..cause of my bad ankle and back.I handed the reigns over to my DIL ..Liz...a couple of years ago.. and she took them and ran.LOL She made a scrumptious Turkey by marinating it over night and it was sooo moist..and sooo pretty I just had to show you.:)
The table and side counter was pretty much full of food for all.Liz made the turkey and dressing, mashed potatoes with cream cheese..mmm....corn,celery sticks filled with peanut butter and some with cream cheese..my favorite..then she had dinner rolls,(Jimmy supplied them)deviled eggs and cranberry sauce to go with the meal.Carrie(my oldest granddaughter)..now fourteen..helped her with some of the food and did a great job too! I made my Macaroni and cheese and Waldorf salad that everyone there loves.Christy made the sweet potato souffle this year and it was yummy too!For dessert..Liz made pies...pumpkin,chocolate pudding pie and lemon meringue (Jim's favorite). We all ate way too much and still had some left over to bring some back for our supper on Friday night. After the dinner at Robby's house..we all came back to our house to decorate for Christmas.Robby and Melisa(Liz's sister) and the girls decorated the Christmas tree and Robby and Melisa hung the Christmas lights outside for me.Wow..don't you just love a large family?LOL Thank you for helping me decorate!:)
I wanted to give a shout out for "Just So Scrappy" and her COOL brag book pages.I LOVE her designs .They are soo cute.She gives ten brag book pages away for every kit she makes.If Jim would get me a pay pal account..I would buy out her whole store. Maybe that's why I don't have one yet?LOL I asked for one for Christmas.We'll see.hehe Her link is in my sidebar...be sure to go see her and please tell her I sent you.:) I will show you some brag book pages soon of Katlyn (my great niece) pretending to cook.I used "Just So Scrappy's cooking brag book pages to do it and they turned out soo cute!

Thanks for stopping by and looking.Love your visits!
