Happy - almost week late - Thanksgiving!
Here is my real Happy Thanksgiving to you including what I am grateful for!
Here is what we did via Instagram!

We woke up, Kevin played in a turkey bowl, I helped cook, cooked some more, family came over...
Lily (my niece) & I
Lily is hilarious/cute/darling and she put the flower in my hair, haha and I honestly think I look weird in this picture but whatever, I'm posting it. And I want Lily's shirt; sparkles rock.

from the many foods...
A variety of rolls, bean salad, deviled eggs, spinach salad, jello, asparagus, turkey, gravy, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, etc...

from the many desserts...
Ooey gooey butter cake, pumpkin pie, pies (pecan & berry one I think?), trifle, & more...

we may have been biased to think the trifle was the best dessert...
as Kevin & I made it
Layers include: Chocolate cake, chocolate pudding, hot fudge, home made whip cream, heath bar crumbles, repeat.
