Meet Lyllian Rose
She’s 3 weeks old and perfect in absolutely every way.
So, perfect, in fact, I didn’t want to give her back.
I mean… doesn’t this picture just work?
Holidays and babies just go together and my cousin’s newborn was a welcome addition to our family. She was passed from family member to family member receiving nothing, but love. I know my time for babies isn’t quite right yet, but it’s fun to borrow one in the mean time. 😉
Thanksgiving was celebrated at my Aunt Carol and Uncle Bob’s house this year. As always they did a wonderful drop welcoming over 30 family members into their loving home.
First up – the wine.
I had three small glasses of Merlot throughout the day.
My Mom’s famous cheeseball was a hit, as always. I had two or three cheese filled crackers as well as other various nibbles from the table. My Aunt’s bacon wrapped chicken went fast, but I did get a bite and it was too fabulous for words. 😉
It’s Turkey Time!
My Aunt found a THIRTY-FOUR pound turkey to feed our large family!
That’s one big bird!
And A LOT of turkey!
Don’t worry there was plenty of other goodies too. 😉
We dined outside in the beautiful Florida sunshine. Can you believe we were actually sweating outside?
I tried to squeeze a little taste of everything onto my plate – it filled up fast!
My favorites included the corn casserole and cranberry sauce, but honestly, I loved it all. 🙂
Now, the dessert table is really where all the magic happens.
Heaven on a plate!
My Pecan Pie came out! Can you believe it?!?! I had nothing but compliments for the pecan pie. Pie Success!
And , of course, it wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without the traditional making of Glurg.
Glurg is a super secret family recipe for a warm, delicious alcoholic beverage. Just one sip will grow hair on your chest.
Shhh…. don’t tell my uncles I showed this to ya. 😉
Just know it includes all of the above.
And these nuts are the best nuts you will ever have in your life. 😉
I’ve been picking at left overs all evening and have stuffed myself silly. An early bed time is in my very near future.
Black Friday starts tomorrow. See you at the malls!
