My posts are a little out of order but that's OK!
Thanksgiving 2015 was one to remember! Gideon enjoyed his first Thanksgiving by being passed around the room by all this favorite people and looking like a plump little turkey himself.
We hosted both sides of our families and while missed those who weren't with us but it was still a big crows as usual! We pulled up an extra table, had our parents bring extra chairs, and just stuffed everyone into our house.
Ryan brined and baked the turkey as usual and it was his BEST one yet!! Seriously, this guy is the turkey whisperer. My mom and sister and I made homemade pies earlier in the week-pumpkin, chocolate pecan and a carmel apple cake. YUM! I made a sweet potato casserole and everyone else contributed the other side dishes.
It was a low stress fun Thanksgiving. We started the morning out by watching the parade (Gideon watched his first TV and loved the Rockettes, little tease!) and finishing up cooking and then had a house full of people by 1:00. Such a sweet day and day absolutely brimming with blessings.
We are grateful!
Look at that happy baby boy!!
Oh my the food was seriously EXTRA scrumptious this year. Not sure why but everyone just was really good at cooking lol
My mom made us laugh because this table of adults was the boring table and the other table was full of all the kids and she declared that one the "fun table" haha
Cousins!! Left to right: Sawyer, Henry, Ryder, Rilyn, Gideon
I will praise God’s name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving.
