Night before Thanksgiving dinner of homemade crabcakes with a roasted red pepper remoulade sauce, cream cheese mashed potatoes and peas.
Thanksgiving morning breakfast – Breakfast Braid – stuffed with honeycrisp apples, white cheddar cheese, sage sausage, scrambled eggs and some sharp cheddar cheese on top… mmmmmmm
Lots of napping by this one…
The never ending battle with the hot rollers….
But I mean – when the result looks like this it’s totally worth it!
Thanksgiving dinner at my Aunt’s house… So great to get to spend this day with family… This year was such a positive day for us…
Ryan was even given my Dad’s old seat at the table – a little bitter sweet but still made me smile.
Can you believe I made that little turkey guy in 2nd grade? He’s held up well!
almost the whole crew was there by dessert. Love these guys more than words can express – including everyone that was out of frame!
Got the tree up and decorated – Mom described it as “delicate” in appearance – I guess that’s a good thing right?
I prefer it at night all lit up – though this picture does not do it justice
My little side table with perhaps my favorite sign :)… I’ve also hung my stockings from the shelf above it and make the most of the small spaces I have for decorating.
Had a little of this to kick back and relax and hold on to my time in louisville
Spoiled this little girl silly for a few hours… She wasn’t one to complain…
Sunday – I made brunch for my mom and grandma since I didn’t spend Thanksgiving with them… Homemade hashbrowns with roasted peppers and onions…
Cinnamon roll casserole prior to the maple sugar glaze on top
Eggs Benedict Casserole before we topped it off with homemade Hollandaise sauce
All ready to enjoy – btw I could bathe in that Hollandaise sauce – a fat kids dream
Mom wanted a family picture – Minnie included… I think I’ll get her and my grandma a mimosa next time to get them to relax a bit!
At Friendsgiving Sunday I got to hang out with this cutie pie 🙂
THEN! Merry Christmas to ME! On black Friday I bought myself a Kitchenaid Mixer on Amazon. I’ve wanted one for 6 years and finally bought one…
Chocolate Chip and Butterscotch Chip Cookies… SO EASY…
