Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I was very blessed this year to have a lot of help in the kitchen. Even though we have a small family gathering I always find it a challenge to get all the sides and the turkey completed at the same time.
Sasha and Mark work on the Brussels's sprouts.
I use my Franciscan Ware Apple platesfor festive occasions.
After dinner we, along with half of Kansas City and their dogs and out-of-town guests, headed down to the Plaza for the lighting ceremony. A celebrity with local ties always flips the switch to turn on all the lights and this year it was Eric Stonestreet from Modern Family.
The weather was unseasonably warm and it was fun to stroll through the Plaza enjoying all the festive store displays and burning some calories before heading home to pumpkin pie and card games.
I have resisted the urge to hit the shops today in search of fabulous Black Friday deals and will make some pumpkin bread for the boys to take back with them tomorrow. And then the decorating will begin...
