A Thanksgiving Feast

our thanksgiving was full of family and delicious food...
making lovely memories. mr. c and i hosted dinner at our home. both sides of our families (about 25 family members) joined us for the festivities. mr. c had a beautiful red deck built...over our pool. so, this long table is sitting on top of the swimming pool! it worked out perfectly. by the time we strung the white lights and set the table...we were so excited...we wanted to leave it up and have another party! my centerpieces... pumpkins made by me. log candles made by my dad. the lovely bird prepared by mr. c.
we had SO much food...however, it all seemed to get consumed!
everyone brought a delectable treat...
we had turkey, fillet, ham,
homemade chicken and noodles (made by my nana),
spinach, sweet potatoes, green beans, brussel sprouts, salads, rolls,
fruit, veggies, pies, cakes, brownies, and lots more.
it was so nice having everyone together...
i am so thankful for our families...
for the laughs and smiles...
the great food...
and this beautiful life...
