Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope you all have had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Made a pecan pie(pea-caan peye) for desert and way too much of other real foods. We had a small gathering of my mom, step-daughter, son and myself.(also 4 dogs if they count in your world) DS and DH left at 3:30 to go deer hunting and came home empty handed and hungry.Menu of turnip greens, sweet potato casserole with nuts, brown sugar coconut and corn flakes on top(I know it sounds weird but it is the only way to top the sweet potato) dressing, turkey, pork loin with mustard sauce, fresh cranberry relish, and giblet gravy. I wanted to get a picture of the table but they started eating before I could snap a shot. So here are my left overs instead! lol

Close your eyes and imagine a table with an antique blue and white china and pipping hot food. Don't blink or it looks like above photo before you can tell them to wait.

 I managed to get some beading done on a exchange piece and hope to complete the finishing work tonight.I just love this one and hope to post a pic soon and they will allow. 

I do hope that amid the stress that family can sometimes bring and hopes for perfect meals we put on ourselves, you were able to find time to celebrate all the goodness in this life God has given you. If it is not a holiday in your country be a trend setter and start making it one. A day to be thankful without the stress of gift giving or other expectations is a nice day. 

Thanks for stopping by,
