Happy Thanksgiving

I'd like to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving.We spent Thanksgiving with my family. It was so nice to spend time with them. We went up last night and had a very nice dinner. My sister took the kids for the night so my mom and stepfather, Brian and I went out for a cocktail. We came home and watched some tv. My mom made these delicious pies... pumpkin and pecan... yummo!
I love my mom's story of when she was learning how to make pies from her grandmother and made one at home and got so upset with the dough she threw it against the wall. She called her grandmother and she was laughing so hard she couldn't stop! I love it! I learned how to make pie crusts from my grandma as well! Family tradition you can say... we make the best pumpkin pie, just ask Brian!
The turkey (or chicken) was spectacular... Clara ate Turkey, but Bryce ate "chicken" he doesn't like turkey, just ask him.
My favorite food is stuffing and my mom makes the best!!! Today's was yummy as normal!
Here are Brian and Clara watching The Grinch after dinner.
I started a tradition years ago, I can't even remember when... but I always got my pictures taken with my grandparents before I would leave a family event... well, it still continues so here is today's photo shoot... they are priceless to me!

I am so thankful for each of these people... I love them so much and I am so grateful that I got to spend time with them this weekend!
