Happy Thanksgiving!

Homemade pumpkin pies, caramel apple cheesecake, and Oreo cream pie (because that’s Adam’s favorite). Also, deviled eggs and beats. We had mashed potatoes keeping warm in my crockpot, as well. LOTS of food!

Turkey, macaroni and cheese, stuffing, and corn.

We had a great Thanksgiving! My dad and his girlfriend came over. She brought her kids, who are such good kids. We also had a man who is a real refugee from Afghanistan. He was an incredibly sweet person. He’d never been to an American Thanksgiving dinner. I was so happy to be able to represent the spirit of Thanksgiving, and show him some kindness and fun. He had never thrown a football, until today! He didn’t know how a buffet dinner worked. It’s a powerful reminder to be grateful, thankful, this Thanksgiving, for the blessings I get to enjoy.

I’m exhausted now! It was a beautiful day, though.

  1. Eve, so glad that all turned out so well for you and the family. Thanksgiving is a time for all the family to give thanks and show the love they have for each other. It is a lot of work preparing but brings pleasure when everyone enjoys the festivities. God Bless you, Adam and all your family.
    Sir 🙂

    Linda and I changed our plans to join y’all because after reading about all you were preparing,was afraid she would gain way too much weight! Having seen the pictures I have to agree. Lol!
    Thank you so much for your wonderful blog!
