Here is a recap of our Thanksgiving. It was truly a day of good food and even better company!
We started the day like usual by watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!
The girls helped me make place cards. :) We didn't have brown paint so we made blue/black/purple turkeys instead. Ha!

Later on when it came time for dinner, we had a fire going and ate the most delish food. Ina's Parmesan Thyme Crackers (homemade) and Ina's Butternut Squash Hummus for apps. Our turkey was maple and mustard with a Port and Black Pepper Gravy (recipe from Food & Wine mag). Sides were Ina's Herb & Apple Bread Pudding, mashed potatoes, cranberries, Ina's roasted parsnips and carrots. Dessert was Ina's Pumpkin Pie with Bourbon Whipped Cream and homemade Apple Kuchen. So so good!!
After dinner, we app worked on a 1,000 piece puzzle! So addicting!
For the Evans family Thanksgiving, we started with a stop at Starbucks. Always make the drive more fun! And hot cocoa for the girls is always a special treat!!
It was SO foggy, but beautiful that day!
I somehow didn't get any photos of the people or food, but Thanksgiving is sure a holiday that fills up my heart. We have SO SO much to be thankful for. Life is good!
P.S. The day before Thanksgiving we volunteered with the Volunteer Center's Do Good Bus! Here are a few photos. I'm so proud to be President of this awesome org!!
