|Our plates from Hobby Lobby|
Soooo, this year I decided only bake 3 pies: 2 sweet potato and 1 pumpkin. Only a few sides instead of gazillions: mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, yams, and cranberry sauce. That was it.
I also didn't spend days cooking in the kitchen because there wasn't so much to cook! I loved it AND I sat down with the kiddos and hubby of course. I wasn't over heated (haha) and I enjoyed my Thanksgiving dinner with my family (this is not to say I didn't enjoy other Thanksgiving dinners).
Even though I only baked three pies there was still a lot of yummy desserts! Josh made an apple pie and a chocolate pudding pie from scratch too! And Annette made lots of cream puffs. It was her first time. She made three different fillings: Nutella, Vanilla, and Pumpkin. She also made Rice Crispy Treats!

Of course I had a nice cup of java ☕ while watching the football game with hubby. Yes, we watched a football came. I'm not a football fan but it was for the hubby. Lupe's not a watch-every-football game type of guy but he enjoys a game now-and-then.
Thank you Lord for a wonderful Thanksgiving Day with my family .
