Our Thanksgiving.

My mother-in-law Bett hosted her annual Thanksgiving Party on Sunday.

It was wonderful ... so many family members and friends came. There was so much good food and good times ... it's my absolutely FAVORITE day of the year!

My sister-in-law
Bonnie made these darling pumpkins made out of cheese ... they were the hit of the party. I think she said she found the instructions on Susie Q's blog. I did not turn this picture around because I do not have the software I need to do that just now. Sorry about that.

Here we find Mike frying one of the two turkeys he fried. Yummmmm!! If you've never had fried turkey, you just do not know what you are missing!

Saying cheese ... my brother
Jerome and my sister-in-law Bonnie.

My brother-in-law Ray (Mike's brother) and his girlfriend Terri.

Me and my wonderful sister-in-law

Mike and my amazing brother
Jerome. I have to tell you ... he and Bonnie came bearing gifts for us. They are just so, so sweet. I will take pictures of the awesome things they shared with us soon!

Me and my big bubba ...

And finally ... our little fella. The two loves of my life ... Mike and Griffin.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving ... we are so blessed to have so many amazing people in our lives that we can share this holiday with.

Bonnie said...

Thanks for all the kind words Missy. You brought tears to my eyes. We just love you guys so much. And I love all those pictures of all of us. I'm going to be stealing them.

Susie Q said...

Oh Missy! You are so lucky to have such a warm, happy family! I am so tickled that Bonnie made those pumpkins!! Aren't they sweet??

Bonnie is a great lady..as are you dear, dear Missy. Love to you all...

Happy Thanksgiving from Cole!

I love all the pictures! The one of you and Bonnie is so sweet! No wonder she wants to steal it. lol
The egg peeling is a great tradition...anything you do as a family every year brings ya'll closer together. When G is older, he'll have wonderful memories of "crackin eggs" with his grandparents. I thinks it fantastic that Mike's family (step's and non step's) can all get together. That's how it should be.
Ya'll have a Happy Thanksgiving.

I love the pictures of your family celebrating Thanksgiving. The little cheese pumpkins are adorable. Okay...Bonnie is going to have to do a demo and show us all how to make them in person!!! I did see the idea on Susie Q's blog but thought I might not be patient enought to make more than 2!!!

See you very soon!

The pumpkin shaped cheese is too cute! What's with all the eggs? What do you do with all of them?

Looks like everyone was very happy. Gotta try to make some of those pumpkins. With Cecile and the rest of the family in Florida, I missed out on the fried turkey this year.
