Happy Thanksgiving to you! I know I'm a little late, but it's been pretty hectic around here.

We had a fabulous and wonderful Thanksgiving holiday at our house. There were 9 of us this year, which worked out really nicely because we could all fit at the same table. My parents, my brother, and some friends joined us. There was much food. The menu included:

Deep fried turkey
Mashed potatoes
Giblet gravy
Traditional bread stuffing
Smoky bacon and biscuit dressing
Honey roasted root vegetables
Green bean casserole
Baked cranberries with rum
Buttermilk biscuits
Deviled eggs
Bourbon pecan tart
Pumpkin pie
Lemon shortbread
Homemade whipped cream

Mmmm.... it seemed like the favorite this year was the bacon and biscuit stuffing. Truly decadent. I wish I had some pictures to share, but I was kind of distracted what with all the cooking and feasting.

There is so much to be thankful for this year. I try to count my blessings every day, but it really is just extra special to have a day to really focus on all of the wonderful things in my life. Between that, and the fun feasting that always is a part of the day in my family, Thanksgiving is definitely my favorite holiday.

And I'm also very thankful for my friend, E, who brought a super special gift:

super nifty basket
With tasty treats!
super tasty treats inside the basket
How cool is it to have crafty friends??? The basket is just perfect.
