Thanksgiving

Y'all, we've had the best little Thanksgiving this year, and I'm oh so very grateful for it.

It was just the four of us on Thanksgiving Day, so our celebration was small but deliciously sweet!








Olivia was such a doll helping me in the kitchen.  








Kevin was in charge of the turkey and gravy.  He used Ina Garten's recipe for Herb Roasted Chicken Breast, and it was super flavorful and juicy!  Delish!

We also had Macaroni and Cheese, Pioneer Woman's Green Bean Casserole, Grandma's Corn Bread Dressing, Pineapple Souffle, and, for dessert, Mocha Espresso Cream Pie!



Friday morning, we were up and out early for our annual trip to the Merry Christmas Tree Farm to find and cut down our Christmas Tree!



It was a beautiful, but cold morning!  Look at that blue sky--not a cloud to be seen.  It's my favorite kind of sky!

















We stopped at Starbucks on the way to the tree farm to get their new Chestnut Praline coffee (that I just can't get enough of) and their frosted snowman cookies for the kiddos ('cause what kid doesn't need a giganto snowman cookie for breakfast!?!)  

This is Davis on the way home after he destroyed a candy cane and then moved on to finish his snowman cookie.  This kid's a MESS!




Once the sun went down, we made our annual Christmas hor devours and snacked while we decorated the tree.









And to round out our Thanksgiving festivities, we spent today visiting with Granny and Papa and having Thanksgiving lunch at Mama and Daddy's.  On the agenda tomorrow...I can't wait to get to church, and then we're going to tackle the rest of the Christmas decorations around here!  

Sincerely,

Leigh
