What a wonderful way to start the super early day! Daddy made breakfast :)

Then we got the turkey cleaned, and "stuffed" with carrots, onion, celery, fresh sage and thyme. Covered in butter and s&p. Then we put it in a bag, on a rack, in the pan. Phew!
That is our first turkey!!

The girls thought it sounded so good, they were already wanting to eat Thanksgiving!!

The rest of the morning, the girls hung out with Daddy (when he wasn't helping), and we got the rest of dinner cooking by 11:30am! So with things just finishing up (and waiting for the turkey drippings so I could make gravy), we left Hubby in charge of food, and I took the girls upstairs to clean up and get dressed... We came down to a beautifully set table :)

Homemade Sourdough Stuffing!! My new Favorite! Shh, I think it's better than my mom's, who before this year has the ONLY stuffing I ever liked!

Homemade Pecan Pie, in a homemade crust.

Hillbilly Green Beans... (thanks again for the recipe mom - he decided he wanted it made with ham and fresh green beans, so I had to start it the day before), these are so yummy they are requested to be a new family favorite!

Smashed Potatoes (homemade mashed potatoes with the skins still on), always a staple! With yes, that's Whole Berry, Cranberry Sauce. Sadly I was the only one who liked it... but with ground clove like my dad taught me, it was wonderful!

The turkey! mmmmm, juicy :)

Homemade Green Bean Casserole with Hubby's Home fried "french" onions!  With a new favorite here, Pecan topped Sweet Potatoes.

Thanks to Butterfly and my mom, we had homemade pumpkin pies! You know it wouldn't be the holidays without pumpkin pie!

The girls had to try out the turkey leg, Butterfly knew what to do, but Ladybug had to explore it first! 

That was our Thanksgiving!
We had it for lunch, then we ate the leftovers "as is" for the rest of the day, and the whole next day!
