We Gathered Together

Hello friends how was your week? Your Thanksgiving? Did you spend time with family and friends? We had only a small group at our house for Dinner on Thanksgiving Day, just five people. My MIL was able to leave the assisted living village and come and eat with us. Her Birthday is in a few days so we decided to go ahead and celebrate since we were all going to be together. We had a great time.

My husband loves candied sweet potatoes. I make them just like my mama always did. I just hate peeling them.
Cornbread made for the dressing.
And of course we had to have mashed potatoes too. They’re my favorite.
Making the dressing. We always call it dressing in the south unless you are actually stuffing it in the turkey
and then it is called stuffing. We had ham instead of turkey but Mark still likes the dressing with it.
Double layer Birthday cake which I then split into four layers. You get more yummy icing this way.
She loved the cake and her Birthday Girl Button.

It was a wonderful day. My sister in law and I took all the babies for a good walk after dinner. And by the time everything was cleaned up and the left overs put away I was pretty much exhausted. Mark drove his mom back to the assisted living village and then we settled in to watch Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and I couldn’t keep my eyes open. Unfortunately there was no Black Friday shopping for me and my sister because I had to work. But that is o.k. we already have a couple of shopping trips planned in the next week or two. Also Buster and Milo were scheduled on Friday for early morning vet appointments to get neutered. More on that in the next post. This silly kitty mama was a little emotional about taking the babies in for this procedure but they did just fine. My heart could barely stand it. Silly Kitty Mama.

I could barely keep my eyes open to watch Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. It is a tradition we watch it every year.

On Saturday I went downtown, Madisonville. The block around the courthouse was set up with vendors and food trucks for Christmas. It was a lot of fun. I bought a few things for Christmas presents and had lunch at one of the food trucks before heading to get groceries.

Rides were given around the square.
Yummy Kettle Corn. This booth smelled amazing!!!!
An event was planned for later Saturday night with some of our local churches’ choirs performing.
Isn’t our courthouse beautiful. It’s very old. There is a newer annex but I love this old one.
I didn’t get a hotdog at this booth but I thought the name was cute.
This is where I got the best cheeseburger of my life!!!!

I’m getting ready for a busy week, how about you?

Always remember

Love your day your way!!!!!
