We have hosted Thanksgiving at our house the past few years, but this year the thought of it was just too much. I was barely getting through a normal day, so certainly not a holiday. My mom is always willing, so she was the great host this year.
I did bring a couple of items that have gone over well in the past, and had some helpers, including cranberry sauce (which Zoe refers to as jelly).
It's a great recipe and does not have any sugar, just dates to sweeten it a bit. The girls LOVE it and asked for a bowlful when it was done.
Beach insisted on a special drink for us!
Zoe helped me with the thankful rolls (where we hid what everyone was thankful for inside). She does love to help and be involved. This is great and a sign of hope that she will be a better cook than her momma.
Our evening was documented by Aaron's great camera (he took all the great pictures).
Amazing meal with some holiday special treats.
One of the best things about the holidays is that Lauren is around!
We helped in putting up some of the Christmas decorations at my parent's house.
The babes were (mostly) happy!
And the tree got a little love...
until my little love broke a glass ornament.
We attempted some family pictures.
With some funny shots of the grand kids.
Here is to so many things to be thankful for!
