Hard to believe Thanksgiving is already 4 days past and it will be December tomorrow!!

Trust everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We certainly did!! Our eldest child and daughter, Suzette, hosted Thanksgiving this year. Of course we all helped by bringing something but all I had to do was a dessert. I took "Almost Pumpkin Pie Cake". It was yummy as were all the other desserts. Oksana made a cheese cake. So proud of her, at age 13, being a part of the cooks. Deann brought homemade Pecan and Pumpkins pies. We are so happy to add a good pie maker to our group. Suzette and Dave provided turkey and dressing, a wonderful fresh fruit salad, mashed potato, rolls and tea & soft drinks. Benny brought his Amish Green Beans (a must have at all our gatherings) and a Cranberry Salad. Also in attendance were Jacque, Marc, Aric, Mason, Aaron, Cody & Mickey rounding out the 13 of us.

The table was set with the china and silver, linen tablecloth and napkins in the formal dining room.

We ALL stuffed ourselves and then watched the Dallas Cowboy game and the 4 boys spent some time at the park just 2 houses down the street. The day was beautiful...would you believe 70 degrees the last week of November. YEAH!!!!

One of the MANY things I am thankful for is my wonderful family and that all our kids (except David in California) live in the immediate area.

What I am not thankful for is that I lost/misplaced/? my camera at the church on Tuesday when there taking a picture of Mickey & Sherry (the cook) .... consequently I have NO PICTURES!!! Suzette said, "Oh shoot." When I arrived and announced I couldn't take any pictures.

Please check in on the Frugal Blog to see what I've done with left overs!!!!

Oh no, no camera!!

We had a wonderful day as well. My parents came over with my brother and Alfred & Alicia. Everyone cleared out pretty early in the afternoon so we enjoyed our kids for the night and felt so blessed to have them here. They headed out in the morning to Alfred's family.

It was a nice day!! Oops, never thought to haul out my camera.
