Thanksgiving 2016

Yesterday we had a lovely Thanksgiving with family up in Moreland with my sis-in-law and family and brother-in-law. Rob’s Mom and Step Dad were in Texas so they weren’t there. We got there around 10 and got to catch some of the parade.

Alex enjoyed cuddling with Maria’s dog, Sweetie.

It was a balmy day, which made it great for cooking our turkey in the infrared oil-less turkey fryer and visiting out on the back deck.

After watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade and hanging inside for awhile, we headed out to get the turkey cooking.

We told the kids to get out and play in the beautiful weather. I grabbed the camera and snapped a few shots of the kids as well as our beautiful surroundings.

Lots of work was done in the kitchen. Maria’s older daughter is quite the baker. She made some pumpkin bread that was out of this world! Maria made applesauce, pumpkin, and apple pies as well as asparagus. I never got a picture of all the food.

Turkey looks delish!

I also made these Pecan Pie Bars that I hadn’t made in years.

Pecan Pie Bars - an easy dessert to throw together for a Thanksgiving, Christmas, or even a potluck dinner.

After dinner we went back outside for a group shot.

We didn’t get a shot of our family by ourselves since Drew told me we had enough pics of our family…
