Thanksgiving 2016

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving, and enjoyed spending time with their families.
We got back to Oklahoma on Monday November 21st.
It was really nice to see the house.
I have to say I thought I would be homesick while in Arizona, but I wasn't.
Everything was just where we left it, with just a little more dust on it.  :)

The plan is a standard plan for our Thanksgiving.
My mom makes the cornbread dressing.
I cook the turkey.
We fix some other dishes, and boom, we have a feast.

One of the traditional dishes we have every holiday is a cranberry, cool whip, and marshmallow dish that my grandma Murray would always make.
We have a bowl that is always used for this dish...just one of those family things that we do.

The kids and grands show up and it is time for the feast to begin!
The food was great as usual.
We all ate too much, but isn't that what we are supposed to do!

Heather brought a yummy dish of mac and cheese.
She also brought a pumpkin roll, and a pumpkin cheese cake.

We had way to much food, but that's fine because the left overs are part of the festive times.

After we finished our meal, we got everyone outside for the Thanksgiving picture that I try to take every year.
I just love to see how the kids have changed each year..and of course the older folks haven't aged one bit!

That concludes Thanksgiving at Chukadi Acre.
I am so thankful for our small but mighty family.
Blessed for sure.
