Thanksgiving Day 2015

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, overflowing with the blessings of food, family, friends, and faith. Our Thanksgiving was truly blessed!  :)

I did most of my cooking on Wednesday, which made Thanksgiving Day relatively easy and peaceful!  :)


Thanksgiving morning, while Alan and I stuffed the turkey and got it in the Roaster, the kids ran the annual Turkey Trot.  Bethany won first place in the 1 mile fun run! :) The others made a good showing in the 5k.



When the runners got home, I treated them to Pumpkin Pancakes with maple butter syrup and bacon! :)



Here's my Thanksgiving selfie!  :)  Why do I look so happy?  Because the cooking was done and it was time to eat! :)



Our menu included: Turkey, Stuffing, Mashed Potatoes and Gravy, Sweet Potato Casserole, Broccoli Casserole, Squash Casserole, Green Beans, Cranberry Sauce, Pumpkin Bread, and Pumpkin Yeast Rolls. 


Here's my plate! (Thanks to Plexus Block, I didn't overeat on Thanksgiving, and half of my carbs and sugars were blocked from being absorbed by my body!)  :)


Here we are sitting down to eat!  This picture shows everyone but me and my granddaughter Sarah, who is in the highchair to the left! :)  The two beautiful blondes on the right are international students that we are hosting for Thanksgiving - Lizzie from Scotland and Beata from Sweden! :)


It was a delicious feast!  We saved dessert for later that night . . . Apple Pie and Pumpkin Pie! :)




It was a fabulous Thanksgiving and we enjoyed the time with family and new friends counting our blessings! :)
