Pinwheels, and Turkey, and Pie - Oh My!

'Ello, my dears!

How was your Thanksgiving? 
Ours was truly great - the day was beautiful, the food was amazing, and the fellowship was definitely sweet! Along with our troop of seven =), we had extended family over for the celebration! We talked, and ate and ate some more, leaving the table thoroughly stuffed with both food and fun!

  • Mom's *always-gorgeous* turkey
  • Sweet and Spicy Cranberry Sauce
