This Thanksgiving was different than past Thanksgivings but I had a lot to be thankful for and family to share it with.  First thing in the morning, I woke up and baked a yummy Breakfast Casserole…followed by preparing yummy Spinach Dip.  When my stepmom woke up, she put together the stuffing and had the turkey in the oven by the time I was out of the shower.

I had been up late the night before and took a nice cat nap with my 2 year old.  When I woke up, they had the Green Bean Casserole, Sweet Potato Casserole, and Stuffing in the oven.  The potatoes were cooked, so all I had to do was add butter, sour cream, milk, and garlic salt and mash those babies together. 

Dinner was so good and I was so stuffed afterwards!  My favorite dish this year was actually the Sweet Potato Casserole – with the marshmallows on top of course.  It was the perfect texture, temperature, and sweetness!  The turkey was a Butterball and amazingly tender and full of flavor!

Here are some pics from Thanksgiving in our home!

I hope everyone had a very Happy Thanksgiving!  I am thankful for so much in my life and hope you took a minute to think about the blessings in your life as well.  A few things I am thankful include my 3 boys, my family (including parents and sibilings), my friends, a roof over our head, heat, my health, and my blog!

What are you thankful for?
