We sure did have a great Thanksgiving!

Wednesday: a taste of what was to come…the Pioneer Woman Cinnamon Rolls…and we were able to sample them in our Thanksgiving shirts from Bibi and Pop-Pop…yes!

Thursday: THE day

Emily Nelson totally kicked butt. Did you hear me on that one? She kicked butt! We had devised a menu the week prior that was quite lofty…it featured virtually every thanksgiving menu item we could think of…and then she magically swopped into town and we executed it. Seriously, it was fantastic. SHE is fantastic.

I wish I had a picture of her magic casserole-making arms in action….come to think of it, they probably move too fast to have been captured in photograph…would have been a crummy image cause of the high speed movement…

Instead, I got her and baby Chaz…

Ah! Too cute!

Stephen deep fried us another turkey (spot on, deliciousness) and we all took a quick time-out for some family photos on the green bench…

Wait a second! Before we move to GB Fam Shots, we gotta shout out to our Aunt Mags who always sports a great top-of-your-head ponytail and Reesey P could not help but emulate on Turkey Day…off the charts cute…

Okay, here we go…

…and then one of my favs…2 Bradford Lowry’s are always better than 1….

…and then it was time to eat 🙂

We had a relaxing afternoon and then headed to our fav park (Delaney, of course) to play off some of those calories…

Late Thursday, Hannah and Gordon arrived — hooray! Our crew was complete 🙂

Friday: Christmas Tree Farm (check it out here if you’re looking for a place where you can chop down your very own tree from the fertile and rich FL sand soil)…

We sure did have a great time!

  1. Thank you for the kind words! You also kicked butt, and it was so much fun planning and executing that meal with you. As always, I left the time with you so encouraged. Thanks for hosting us, for your kind words, delicious Pioneer Woman cinnamon rolls (seriously one of the best things I’ve ever tasted), and for just being awesome! Also, love the pictures!
