Thanksgiving 2011

Better late then never.  I know, I'm a few weeks late on posting about Thanksgiving, but here we go. 

Ever since my Aunt Elsa moved back from Chicago it has pretty much become a tradition to have Thanksgiving at her house.  Her house is so nice, it has a massive backyard where pretty much everyone gathers.  There is a tons of sitting room and most important is the big screen TV they have out there for everyone to watch all the Thanksgiving football games on. 

This year the food I thought was the best ever.  Grandma made her traditional stuffing, Aunt Elsa made the dish of the night with her sweet potatoes, and of course the turkey was cooked to perfection.  The only one to miss out on the yummy food was of course, Skylar would refused to try anything yummy and just want to eat the dinner rolls.  What kid doesn't like mashed potatoes...mine of course. Once the pies came out, Skylar definitely didn't hold back.  She would sit on anyone's lap who would let her and take over their dessert plates.  I believe she ate my pumpkin pie slice and my Mom's ice cream pumpkin pie. 

It was a great Thanksgiving and the perfect way to start off the holiday season.

  1. We all have so much to be "thankful" for. Family, friends, moments, and all of our children trying to bring us into the modern age of computers, cell phones, and all they have to offer.
    I am happy to have these pix to enjoy. Thank you for keeping us up to date. You are a pro, Nicole!
    Love, Suzie
