We had the sweetest little Thanksgiving this year. We didn’t have everyone, due to illnesses but we still had a house full and our hearts were all full.
We actually kicked off Thanksgiving on Wednesday. We have a half day of school and I was able to sneak into Guy’s classroom for his feast with the first graders. He was the cutest pilgrim.
After school I took the kids out for some burgers.
Once we were home it was all hands on deck for the cooking to get underway. I made my Simple Cranberry Sauce, prepped all the sides (green bean casserole, homemade rolls, sweet potatoes, , and made some Pumpkin Cheesecake.
On Thanksgiving morning we always have breakfast sandwiches and watch the Macy’s parade.
We even snuck in a family picture.
Our guests started arriving and I had the cutest gravy whisker I could ask for.
We had a great feast with a big spread.
After everyone left we loaded up the car, dropped some leftovers off at my grandparents house (my grandma was really sick so it was a quick drop) and then we went to the lighted Christmas park to walk around and burn off dinner.
When we got home the tree went up.
We got into our jammies and watched Elf and then went to bed.
We had a great day. There is so much to be thankful for. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well!
