This year we spent Thanksgiving with my Dad’s family, just the 7 of us. It was a smaller group than normal but made for a super relaxing nice family day. My stepmom Sharon and I shared all the cooking and my Dad took care of the turkey.
I decided to try my hand at arranging some flowers since I was still totally inspired by the stuff I saw at Matt and Emily’s wedding and had one of the flower boxes left over from her centerpieces. My sister Sam and I worked on this sign together and it wasn’t until way later I realized I wrote the wrong year, doh! Here are some more shots of the flowers.
I had so much fun putting this together that I brought some small pumpkins and squash and we made some more arrangements to put around the house.

Once the Turkey was done we got on with the rest of the show and whipped out a fantastic thanksgiving dinner.
I volunteered to bring a pie (I have not given up on how much I suck at baking yet) and I made a pumpkin cheesecake. I put little flags in it to help convince people to try it…it didn’t really help because the thing turned out horrible. I swear there is no hope for me. Good thing everything else went off with no problems and overall we had an excellent feast.
