Wonderful Turn Out!

I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving. Eric and I had such a ball hanging out with family and seeing our dear friends, Mike and Tiffany, over the weekend! Thanks for visiting us from Orlando; it always means a lot that you make us part of your holiday trips!! More about their visit in the next post...

My Thanksgiving menu turned out delicious - everything worked out just as I had hoped. The fruit was light, the turkey was moist, the rolls were airy and the squash was divine. Everyone had a good time, we went for a nice walk in the woods with the girls, we watched some football, and ate to our tummies content. How I love holidays! Yesterday, Eric and I got into the Christmas spirit and with a fire in the fireplace and Christmas music playing, we decorated our house - it was so cozy. We don't have a Christmas tree yet this year, and aren't sure we will get one since we will be in FL for Christmas. We haven't decided; it seemed so strange not to unpack and hang all our ornaments and star...maybe we will get a small one or a "Christmas bush", which we can later plant out in our yard. It is fun to have the house looking so festive and warm. Now I just need to get some freshly baked Christmas cookies in the oven and flip on White Christmas! :)

I'll be doing more than one Christmas cookie posts...I'm not sure where I would classify since I haven't met one I don't like! I love spritz cookies (make me nostalgic), gingersnaps, peanut butter balls, no bakes, etc! I don't think I've ever had a chocolate covered pretzel haystack...I need you to introduce me! :)
