Happy Thanksgiving!

i hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving! i was planning on posting our wonderful wasti feast last night but EA and RJ spent the night and we got wrapped up in wii.

E and i started out the day at the MAC. i was planning on doing an early spin class but apparently didn't get there early enough. the class was full and the gym was packed. i guess other people had the same great idea of getting to the gym early to get their workout over. anyway, home to make the apple pie, shower, and head to K's for a late dinner/early lunch depending on how you look at it.

peeling the apples

all chopped and mixed with goodness

in the (whole wheat) pie crust waiting for the topping

all topped and ready to bake - yum!

we arrived at K's and she had the house decorated to the nines. i mean, no detail was over-looked. (both she and LJ are real life martha stewarts, seriously) plus the house was already smelling like roasted turkey.

the table all set and decorated. she even had leaf name tags

K also surprised EA and RJ with turkey webkins

her butler's pantry was the bar/dessert area

check out that cake from providence - the decorations were amazing!

RJ had the great idea of making name tags for our drinks so they wouldn't get mixed up

K even had a fire going when we arrived
K and i started preparing in the kitchen while the boys watched the parade

E and i during hors d'oeuvres

K had a great spread in the kitchen.
she made the turkey, mashed sweet potatoes, cornbread muffins, mashed potatoes, and gravy. everyone brought some hors d'oeuvres and/or side dishes. M brought spinach pinwheels, a cheam cheese olive dip, glazed carrots with shallots and red wine. S brought warm brie with apples and plum preserves, butternut squash and field greens salad with warm cider vinagrette, and stuffing with cranberries, leeks, and nuts. i brought white wine and prosecco, green beans with caramilized shallots and the apple pie.

it was quite the feast!

getting our plates

my plate! i had a little of almost everything
turkey, carrots, mashed potatoes, green beans, salad, sweet potatoes, and a sweet potato biscuit

after dinner we got a wasti family picture. we haven't had one of those since S & T's wedding almost a year ago.

i am thankful for a wonderful "in-law" family that feels like family

i am also thankful for "my side" of the family who never cease to make me laugh (not all pictured here)

and of course, my favorite person in the world - E

my schmoopies too!
