Thanksgiving 2009

I realize most everyone is busy getting ready for Christmas now, but we have just gotten home from our Thanksgiving trip and I thought I’d share a little bit of our celebration while waiting for the loads and loads of our laundry to dry.

I guess it would have been nice to post on Thanksgiving or the day after, but I was too busy enjoying my family, the food, and watching football to spend much time on the computer.  And let me tell you … I REALLY enjoyed myself.  There’s lots to share, but here’s just a quick peek …

For starters, my mom went all Martha Stewart on us and prepared a pumpkin spice cake complete with a green “stem” made of green icing on an ice cream cone.

I was pretty impressed.  I only dream of doing these kinds of projects.  I never get around to actually doing them!

There was tons and tons of good food and we all enjoyed it so much (Deah and I even got in a quick run before lunch so we didn’t have to feel so, SO guilty for having pumpkin AND pecan pie.  Just so guilty.)


And Jacob really, really enjoyed his turkey leg …

And we all stuffed ourselves pretty good.

And later that night Caroline and I snuggled up to watch the UT/Aggie game.

I thought the day was perfect!  I am thankful for so many things … including all the family seated around our table.

I made a pumkin cake once. It was awesome!

How about that game?! Sheesh. My boys were looking awful!!! Good thing our defense can suck and still pull out a win! Not without a ton of screams from us!

LOVE that cake! Reminds me of one I did once… but that cone for the stem is brilliant!

It was a great time together.
The cake idea came from a magazine but is so simple. Just bake it in a bundt pan and it looks like a pumpkin.
Martha Stewart-not!!
