thanksgiving festivities

Our Thanksgiving was wonderful – filled with loads of family and even more food. We went to my brother’s soon-to-be in-laws’ home for our now annual pre-Thanksgiving dinner on Wednesday night, and had way too much delicious lasagna, bread, chicken, and goat cheese-stuffed fried green tomatoes. We topped that off with a 13-layer cake. What a great way to get ready for the biggest eating day of the year, right?

You can’t celebrate Thanksgiving without fancy turkey cupcakes!

After watching the Macy’s parade and having breakfast at Cracker Barrel (yum!), we had Thanksgiving dinner at my aunt and uncle’s “party barn” in Cartersville. We gathered with about 50 family members and friends (probably 1/2 were under the age of 10)… it’s always very loud and entertaining with the Sims/Baxter crew! ย We stuffed ourselves like turkeys, watched some football, and played with all of our cousins’ kids… perfect way to end the day!
