We hope your day was filled with everyone and every dish you love. After working a half day yesterday, we spent the rest of the day cooking, watching Mulan, and talking to our siblings on the phone. I even made it to yoga class and sweet Brendan decided to clean the kitchen up while I was gone. This morning, we brought our sweet potato casserole, corn pudding, apple pie, and apple double cherry pie to my aunt Lisa's home in San Angelo.
We had a big family Thanksgiving with my mom's side of the family. Both of her siblings and all of their children were there as well as all five of her brother's grandchildren. We were only missing my brother, Graham, and his girlfriend, Erynn. It's been a really long time (I think Christmas 2011?) since we had everyone together, so today was special.

I'm thankful for pie too. Here's my apple double cherry (recipe from Better Homes and Gardens). It turned out very tasty.
We're looking forward to a few days with my parents. Now that Thanksgiving is over, the Christmas decorating can officially begin. We hope everyone has tomorrow off and can spend the day with family. Around here, we've never been Black Friday shoppers; we just enjoy the leftovers and the company.
|OMG didn't you forget to be thankful for me?|
Of course, I'm thankful for Lola & Zoe: the two best cats a blog has ever been named for.
Goodnight, dear readers; we hope today was a feast for your stomachs and souls alike!
