Thanksgiving Day

This year we had the privilege of hosting Thanksgiving at out house. It was so much fun and right up my alley. We were hoping to have all of the Abshire clan but Becky and her family weren't able to make it up. We missed them very much and it wasn't the same without them but we knew they were being well taken care of by Daiquiri. Here's a few pictures of our day....
Ben brought home these beautiful flowers for me on Wednesday night. This is my attempt at being a photographer. Not quiet like her stuff but I thought this was a pretty picture.
Here's my turkey going in the oven
And here it is out of the oven. It was so good...I love turkey!
Grandma and the boys making the fruit salad. They loved helping her and they were very good at "cutting" the fruit.
All of us working hard in the kitchen. I felt like I was in there most of the morning but it sure was worth it.
I was going to make two different kinds of pies but we all LOVE pumpkin pie so I decided to just do two pumpkins.
Zac got tired of waiting for dinner to be ready I guess. I have to say that it was nice not having him in the kitchen with us right at the end when it's all crazy.
I just had to throw one in of Sarah saying "cheeeeeeesssse". Every time that I get the camera out she looks at me and says it.
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving day. Sally, my friend Jill and I all got up way too early (3:15) on Friday morning and did the whole black Friday shopping. It was a blast and we got a few really great deals. After shopping we headed to Omak for the rest of the weekend and I was able to see the rest of my family. I am very tired and not feeling like I'm ready to start the week (and the month of Dec.) tomorrow but I had a great weekend. I have an awesome family and I am very very thankful for each and every one of you. Love you!

It all looks so beautiful. You've got your mom's touch. : ) I love the flowers. I guess I raised Ben right. ; ) I was so blue on Black Friday. It was so weird just being home all day and not out shopping with you guys. Next year I will be with you!!!!
