And I thought turkeys were the ones to "get stuffed"!
This is our turkey; stuffed and rubbed with a secret recipe marinade.
Ready to bake!

Then it was off to our yearly tradition of
Pie Breakfast
with friends in Park City.

So many pies. So many friends!
So many memories!

This was kind of a momentous year for our family.
It was the first year since we have been married that we did not feast with extended family or friends.
We had plans for family to come here and then we were going to travel to Idaho
and then we just ended up home - JUST US!
We had a low-key very relaxing day.
Here are a few things we did:

After Pie Breakfast we came home and made appetizers.

Snacked on the yummies...
and watched some football (kinda).
It was on anyway.

Then each of the kids began prepping the dish they chose to make for our Thanksgiving dinner.
Abbi - pumpkin pie
Hudson - Chocolate and Coconut Cream Pie, and Sweet Potato Crunch
 Elizabeth - Salad
 Tessa - gravy
 Maggie and Dani - Crescent Rolls
 Caleb - Orange (fruit) Salad
(yes, we let him in the kitchen)

Weston - stuffing

Brian - Turkey Carving
Cooper - Cat Watching
 Me - The Kitchen Director

Time to EAT!

 After dinner we passed cards around that said'
"I am thankful for you"
and each of us wrote in everyone's cards and shared what we were thankful for about them.

 Grandma Great even joined in!

And then...
It was time for more pie!

and very thankful
for all God has blessed us with - especially each other.
God is good.
