Thanksgiving Success

With Ryan unable to travel during this time, we decided to host Thanksgiving this year and invite friends and family who were unable to go home for the holiday. We ended up with a party of 8 and it could not have gone any better! The food was great and the opportunity to introduce 4 adults to cornbread dressing was fantastic! (I never knew there were people out there that hadn't even heard of cornbread dressing. How sad!)

*During preparation for lunch, the kids fell asleep watching the Macy's parade! (Elliot is in the jumpersaucer back there. Look at that insane play room!!!)
Sorry for the food shots but my mom wanted to see pics of the dinner. This was the first year for me to make my Memaw's dressing & gravy recipe. I think they turned out pretty well and everyone else loved it. It's just like when someone else makes the coffee in the morning, it just taste better for some reason.


Oh, and yes....we made it through a holiday with almost no incident! After the kids woke up from their nap, they were playing with the travel swing (which probably needs to be put in storage) and Keaton fell off (or was pushed off) and hit his head. This was his first pretty good knot! These pics don't do it justice but I am sure he had a nice headache last night. Other than that...no teething, no puking and no #3s!!! May we be so lucky at Christmas!
I hope yall had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Man, do we all have so much to be thankful for or what? Enjoy the day after shopping! Get out their and buy your loved ones some computers or laptops (got to support my husband you know)!

Never had cornbread dressing? The horror.

That turkey was sooo yummy. I'm still thinking about it today. Have any leftovers? ;-)
