Thankful 2014


I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!  Ours was relaxing, quiet, and included way too much food for just the three of us!  It was perfect. 

We, of course, had to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade - Clara was pretty excited about all the balloons.  And I made homemade cinnamon rolls to indulge in while we watched (if you follow me on instagram, I posted a few things from our day there as well!). 

Normally we decorate for Christmas on Thanksgiving or the day after.. however, this year we will be out of town for Christmas so we decorated everything about a week ago so we could enjoy it a bit longer.  :)  The only thing we had left to do was put up the lights on the outside of the house.. it was a perfect 70 degrees that day, so Clara had to go out and supervise her daddy..

Everything seems very exciting this year, since Clara is really "getting" it all now.. and she gets so excited!  Christmas music, lights, Santa, presents, etc.. we've really been getting into it over here too.  We've done a couple Christmas crafts together already, which I will blog about very soon! 

The little lady got a ton of fresh air on Thanksgiving and kept herself super busy... she fell asleep before it was even time to eat our dinner!  So I just let her sleep on through it.. she was so peaceful.  :)  I'm so thankful for the time we had together as a family, and for this sweet sleepy baby girl..

It was just us three and for dinner we had all of our favorite holiday go-to's.. ham (for me), smoked turkey (for my husband), scalloped corn, green bean casserole, dinner rolls, mashed potatoes with turkey gravy, stuffing, chocolate pie, and pumpkin pie.  We couldn't narrow down the menu any more than that.. ;)  We did pretty good at finishing most of it off the past couple of days, I must say..

What did everyone else have for Thanksgiving dinner?
