Thanksgiving Day This & That...

This is how we started off Thanksgiving morning...2nd annual Turkey Trot in record time. 
Oh by the way it was 37 degrees...maybe that's why we had record time this year. 
We decided we would cross the finish line together and that's just what we did...31 minutes. Pretty good for not training for it.

Buttermilk Pie is a Texas tradition. I've never heard of such a thing until we moved here and everyone seems to talk about it during the holidays. I made one this year along with a pumpkin pie.
Please ignore my crust. 
This was a hit with the family (too sweet for me) so it will be on the Thanksgiving Day menu...other sides I made will not be but that's a whole other story.


I posted this pic of our girl Junie B Instagram
While we sat at the table eating on Thanksgiving she sat in hers. Btw-these white velvet pumpkins you see in the pic are still on my dining room table even though our Christmas decorations are out. I can't seem to put them away. Check them out at LoveFeastShop...everything is 20% off today.

We ended the night with watching Christmas Vacation-a long time tradition with us and enjoyed a weekend with friends and lots of R&R.
 
So other than that our outside lights are up, Johnny is back
and it looks a lot like Christmas around here!
