Thanksgiving {2013}

Our first Thanksgiving as married folks has come and gone.
I always look forward to seeing everyone on Thanksgiving and shopping that evening!

My sweet Grandma Kay and Mom have been cooking up a storm.
We had turkey, ham, sweet potato casserole, corn casserole, Grandma's INCREDIBLE dressing, mashed potatoes, peas (just for me), fresh green beans, my Uncles roasted potatoes, gravy, hot rolls, and so much dessert that I just felt overwhelmed and didn't have any.
So I guess no "gobble till you wobble" here?!

We have a fairly large family so half of the family eat at the kitchen table and the others in the dinning room. My mom had decorated it so cute! 

I'm mad at myself that I didn't get a pic of Drew and I but of course I managed to get one of Copper!

He was well-behaved and patiently waited for after dinner Frisbee.
My parents have a beautiful German Shepard, Bayley.
Copper and Bayley decided to be best buds and go play in the freezing cold creek in the yard.
Copper got so muddy and wet Drew and I had to give him a bath before we could put him in the truck to go home. But he sure did have just as good a time as us!

Last Sunday we had our first of four Thanksgiving dinners at Drew's grandparents.
I brought cupcakes with homemade chocolate icing.
I decided to try an idea I had seen on Little Baby Garvin awhile ago.
It was a huge hit! We all loved the S'MORE festive toppings 
with the fresh cake and finger licking good icing! 

Hope you had a very delicious and thankful Thanksgiving!
