Thanksgiving 2010

I am finally here to get caught up and post about Thanksgiving!! Last Monday my parents got in town from TX and I SO enjoyed spending lots of time with them!! My Mom had been baking and cooking the week before and brought homemade bread, pies, dressing and some other yummy things for us to enjoy. My house was still decorated for Fall/Thanksgiving. I like to leave it up for Thanksgiving since it's festive! It's not really Thanksgiving to me if my pumpkins are not still out and Christmas trees are up (although I can't wait to get mine up tomorrow!)

My Mom and I did make some cupcakes to take to our family gathering Thanksgiving day. We made Carrot Cake cupcakes. I mixed them and had the idea to put the little candy pumpkins on top. So I baked and she decorated. They turned out super cute and were soooo good!!

Oh and this was what our place settings looked like on our kitchen table . . . .

The day before Thanksgiving, M & I went and had some pictures taken in Harbor Town, down by the river here in Memphis! I can't wait to get them back, hope they turned out good! While we were down there I took some pics of the beautiful trees in this adorable, quaint part of town!

{And finally . . . sunset!}

After our pictures, we went and had a cocktail together and watched the sun set, it was so nice! As we were sitting there we saw a carriage pass by with a family. It was so fun watching a family be together and having a great time!

Thanksgiving day we went to my Uncles house about an hour away, then after lunch there, we went to my Grandparents. We got a few pics over there, but dummy me didn't get any with my Grandparents! I hate that! But here are a few I did get. It had been raining like crazy and by the time we got their we had been rained on - otherwise I would have looked a lil better. LOL

The next night, we still had turkey left over since we had cooked one on Wednesday just for us, but Mom fixed some brisket and it was delish!

Mr. Big was festive over the weekend with his cordoroy outfit he got on his birthday! He was being camera shy!

And now it's so long to my orange accents in the living room and time to ad some red!!

Hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and time with family or friends! I am looking forward to Christmas, but hoping I can do all I need to do. I will be working a lot and I just pray it doesn't put a damper on the holiday for me, because this is my favorite time of year!!
