The Day After...


We had a great time yesterday with my dad’s side of the family. The highlight of the day was getting to talk to my nephew Brandon via Skype. He had been “adopted” by a family in Texas (where he’s in Army training) & was getting ready to head to their house for their Thanksgiving meal.

The sisters trying to organize the table

I think they did a good job :)

My cousin Holly always makes this salad every year - yum!

My sister-in-law made these pilgrim hats & acorns - a pinterest idea.

Bren also made these turkeys & tepees. Holly made some too - so cute & tasty!

My aunt Marilyn always makes persimmon pudding - one of my favorite things about Thanksgiving.

We were all so tickled to talk to him!

The whole crew

My aunt Viv asked if I wanted the hat that Mamaw was wearing in this picture. Of course I said yes!

Last night I went to bed swearing to never eat too much again. And I did pretty well until I woke up today.  Ah well, tis the season…

  4. Looks like your family has a room they rent? Bob's side of the family really needs that. Love all the food!!! I will never make all the stuff I pin on Pinterest. Good for them for following through. That hat looks like a treasure!

  5. Oh my...that is the best use of peanut butter cups! Now I have to go look on Pinterest.

    Is that a Bojangles box on the dinner table? I haven't seen one since we left South Carolina. :-)

    Glad you had a great Thanksgiving!

  7. You're really working that hat! You look like you should be seated in first class on the Orient Express as it heads to Istanbul.

  10. We have to use a church hall now because there are too many of us for a house! And yes, that is a Bojangles box :)

    Nance - I think it's because of the vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice & ginger - because the fruit itself is kind of orange. Oh it is such yummy goodness!
