I've been thinking about this post all day and I know I am going to have a lot of trouble writing it. Our Thanksgiving Day was so perfect that I don't think there are words in the English language to express how I feel about it. I am so thankful for every blessing that we have been given this year especially my wonderful family. Without them my life would be terribly empty.
We carefully planned the menu. In our household, snacks are the most important feature of the meal. Anna and I both agreed that we were going to do mostly snacks and we were going to skip the turkey and just get a chicken and the fixings. However, we were blessed with a free turkey so we changed our plans a little bit. We still did the fixings...stuffing, potatoes, rolls, squash and green bean casserole. But the snacks were really the star of the Thanksgiving show.
In all, we had fourteen different kinds of appetizers. Some of them I didn't even get to eat. They were all soooooooo awesome!! Here's the awards:
Best Newcomer: Boneless Buffalo Chicken Fingers
Returning Favorite: Cranberry Puffs
Fan Favorite: Pigs in Blankets
Best Use of Balled Cheese: Crab Ball Dip
Best Use of Pickled Bologna: Pickled Bologna
After we let our stomachs rest from the snacking, we took some family photos. Here are some of my favorites. I wish I had a video of us taking the pictures. It was hilarious!
Funniest part of the meal was when Tony noticed that Spencer was molding his mashed potatoes. We were sure to get a shot of his hands.
Other favorite things about this Thanksgiving: not having any stress, not having a timetable, being with my dear sister and her dear family all day long, not having to get dressed up, the food was so good, being with all my children and having them get along with each other, having Chris home. It was a glorious day!!
