Thankful...

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving today!  I have so much to be thankful for, but what I am most thankful for is the health and well-being of my family, and a husband who loves me despite my flaws.  I love my family so very much!


(one of the pictures from our Christmas card photo shoot this week - more to come soon!)


Since my mom and mother-in-law do all of the Thanksgiving cooking, I got off easy this year - I made this turkey cheeseball (inspiration via Pinterest from Brandy's blog Gluesticks here).  I think my turkey head/neck was too big, but in my defense I was making it as we were running out the door!  The cheeseball recipe was YUMMY though.  Emily made the most ADORABLE place cards for everyone using my scrap ribbons.





 We had some DELICOUS food - including my mother in law's famous fried okra, which I could eat all day, every day, and never have enough!  My mom's dressing (in the South we call it dressing, not stuffing, just so you know!) was out of this world, too!  We were so stuffed.





A rare picture of four out of our five kids (Will had to work today so we went downtown and took him out to dinner).  Thanks for smiling, Zach =)



Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!

Hi,Heather,thanks for stopping by & yes, we do not live far from each other. Nice to meet you! Don't be surprised if you run into me one day. My sister actually lives closer over your way and that red barn door is 1/2 way between my house & hers. It's a small world, so glad you left a note!
