A few moments relived, of our 2011 Thanksgiving Day celebration.  We sat down to a beautifully decorated table, with place cards included.



A creatively done centerpiece was made up of covered fabric and yarn balls in glass. Gold sprayed, carved out pumpkins held taper candles.




The turkey was purchased at the farm a few miles from their home.  It was cooked using the top rated Turkey recipe from allrecipes.com (find it HERE), it literally fell off the bones, and tasted so good!  Must admit, as her mother I was proud of the job she did.  Not always easy to get a perfectly cooked turkey.  I know from experience.




Two of the three sisters were together this holiday, and they treasured the rare moments it provided them.



We played some rousing games of "Bananagrams".  Competition was fierce:)




What a memorable day!  The ratio of adults to children was 7 to 7.  You can imagine the fun, noise level, the full house, and the laughter.
Precious memories to hold on to.
 
Thank you for stopping by this evening.  My prayer for you this coming week, is that you will experience some memorable moments in the midst of the busyness of daily life.

What a wonderful time you had! I've never made a perfect turkey and I didn't make one at all this year. Wouldn't you know Jeane would serve on golden platters! :) I am so glad her turkey turned out well and I'm sure she was happy. She is such a sweetie! But you know that. Have a great week,
Debbie

How wonderful...too bad your youngest could be there, that must be hard. It's pretty much unavoidable as our children start their own lives with another family to fit in.

Hugs!

It looked like a joyous Thanksgiving for your family, Judy!
It was wonderful for us as our daughter was homef or the week and celebrated a special birthday. We were also able to get many wedding plans accomplished.
It's hard to believe that Christmas will soon be here!

I can see you had a great time, that turkey certainly looks good, I will look for the recipe and pass it to my son in law who will be doing the turkey for our Christmas dinner. Those little boys are so sweet, its lovely to see them growing up. Yes Bananagrams raises quite a competition in our house too!

Mom,
Your post was fun and altogether too complimentary, but I'll take it! :) The recipe actually did not come from Pioneer Woman, but rather was the highest rated Turkey recipe on my favorite www.allrecipes.com website. You can find it here: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/homestyle-turkey-the-michigander-way-2/detail.aspx

Love, and am thankful for YOU!
