A Few Days in November

The day before Thanksgiving I made three different kinds of pie: sweet potato, pumpkin and mini chocolate cream pie. I also ate WAY too much of these. It was fun while it lasted but I'm breaking up with pie now.  
Our Thanksgiving started with lunch with the Foxes, where Sean was being his sweet, silly little self! I am so thankful for my precious boy! We've had our tough moments adjusting to parenthood this year, but we wouldn't trade it for the world! 
We took some family pics with both sides of the family, minus Ryan's dad in the top picture (he was running late because he got called into work) and Sean in the below picture (he was napping). I am very thankful for the wonderful people I get to call family.
At my mom's house we celebrated my niece's first birthday and ate delicious Thanksgiving fare for dinner. I am thankful for my mom's good cooking and for the fact that she got to actually eat it this year due to certain food allergies getting better! God is so good!
The next day we went to my aunt's house for an all day get-together with the relatives. I'm thankful for the beautiful day we had, for how sweet the kiddos looked playing in the sunshine, and for more good food and company!
It was so great to see my cousins and reconnect with them! I'm thankful that they are kind and Godly in addition to being good looking and talented! 
So there you have it, my two day Thanksgiving extravaganza! (By the way, I'm also thankful for all you sweet people I've gotten to meet through blogging! Thanks for reading and taking the time to visit and comment!)

  4. Mini pies are a brilliant idea! I think I should make those in our house sometime, my husband and I can never finish a whole pie on our own. Glad you had some fun family time :)
