Thanksgiving day

On Thanksgiving day we arose and ate bagels and doughnuts then slowly but surely started cooking our DELICIOUS Thanksgiving feast.

Ethan's doughnut :)
I got a kick watching him eat all the icing off then say " all done, I want another one"
After a bit something occurred that, to this "southern gal", was quite amazing.

It started to snow!!!
In November, on Thanksgiving day, I actually got to see snow!!! It really made the day extra special in my opinion.

Attempting to sled.
After running to get some groceries I started on the........ (drum roll please)

APPLE PIE!!!
I made up this "recipe" and its really very easy.

Sauteing the apples in butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and a little salt.
That's really all there is to it, just pour into an unbaked pie crust and bake till golden.

Hot out of the oven

Our Thanksgiving dinner, which included: Turkey and gravy, Mashed Potatoes, Macaroni and Cheese, Spoon Bread, Sweet Potato Casserole, Green Bean Casserole and Rolls.

Playing after dinner

Ethan and I
Everything was sooooo nice and even though it seemed strange not being in my own kitchen, in my own house on Thanksgiving day, I can honestly say that this trip was well worth it.
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving day as well.

I have enjoyed all of your new posts, Bethany! I had some catching up to do. :) It looks like you had such a wonderful Thanksgiving with family! What a blessing!

And how exciting that you were able to see snow! That's not something you are probably used to seeing much of. :)

Thank you for sharing about all of these special times as I have enjoyed reading about them and seeing the photos!
