We had a great day for Thanksgiving and we spent it with Nate’s brother and sister-in-law. It was such a sweet and gorgeous day. This is the third time that Kate and I have worked on Thanksgiving together, and it gets a bit easier every year. While we were preparing dinner, it was so cute to watch the boys and the kids playing ball outside. Featured above are the place settings that Gracie, my niece and I, made. The kids loved them. Here was our menu:
Pineapple Cheese Ball
I have grown up with a tradition in my family to go around the table and talk about the things that we are thankful for. I think it’s a really great idea to help remind everyone of the real reasons why we celebrate this holiday. Although I didn’t get to say all of these, I wanted to remind myself of what I’m truly grateful for [In No Particular Order]:
