Feast Your Eyes On This…

Thanksgiving is such a beautiful time to remember the daily blessings that we often take for granted, isn’t it?  We have SO MUCH to be grateful for…it’s truly overwhelming!

I hope you were able to enjoy your Thanksgiving weekend, not only the meal and the gathering, but the bountiful blessings as well!

We survived hosting, and were grateful for the opportunity to have loved ones in our home. Here’s a glimpse of our own family celebration with Brad’s side of the family.


Gramma came over the night before to help us dress the bird. 


The Reynolds Cooking Chart called for an internal temperature of 180 degrees.  I think we nailed it!


Great Grandma helped Brad with his first Turkey Carving…


The Pioneer Woman’s Creamy Mashed Potatoes were melt in your mouth goodness!


How in the world did the Pilgrims and Indians Cook Thanksgiving Dinner Without the Crock-Pot Invention? 


We got all 19 heads seated and served!


And No Thanksgiving is Complete without a Little Tossing Around of the Football Make That a Blue’s Clues Stuffed Animal

    Thank you so much for sharing your Thanksgiving day, what a treat! I felt as if I was there! Next Thanksgiving I am going to make your mash potatoes, they look delicious!! You have a wonderful family! I started a new tradition this year, I made a Breakfast Thanksgiving which involved 2 different breakfast casseroles. I haven't had a chance to post about yet but it turned out great. This way some of our children could spend Thanksgiving with their in-laws! We now have to share and this was a great way of still being together.

    Looks like a blast Jen!! (I would NOT have wanted the job of cleaning the kitchen after cooking and feeding 19 peeps tho!!) Glad to see you had such a fun day. And btw…Brad looks great…has he lost even more weight??! Those mashed potatoes look like they would have put a few lbs. back on him tho. 😉 And you are looking stunning as always. Such a hot mama you are!!
