Give Thanks.

This year was the first time that Ben and I have ever hosted a Thanksgiving--and I think all of our guests would agree that it was a huge success!! There can be a lot of pressure and stress that comes along with hosting a Thanksgiving for your in-laws--but don't start feeling sorry for me, I didn't have to deal with any of that because I am the lucky girl whose mother-in-law brought the turkey, mashed potatoes, and helped prepare the desserts, appetizer, and side dishes!! Oh and I was told not to get off the couch during clean-up!! So yea, it was a very relaxing, filled to the brim kind of day.
Thanksgiving breakfast--yummy scrambled egg brunch bread
My first time making stuffing and green bean casserole.
Chocolate pecan pie, pumpkin pie, apple pie cupcakes, and homemade whipped cream!  
I didn't have room for turkey!!

We sure have a lot to be thankful for around here--family, babies on both sides, friends that are like family...and as I am settling into my new job, I just want to say that I am so thankful to work in an environment with some of the strongest, supportive people I've ever met...products of the military in one way or another, I tell ya, they're a resilient bunch!!
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving day and has a wonderful, family filled weekend--whether you're idea of fun is finding the best deals and knocking out your Christmas shopping, or sitting on the couch reheating leftovers all weekend! 
For us, the boys are golfing and the girls are trying to avoid the shopping crowds and instead check out the quaint boutiques downtown.  
Happy Friday friends.
