McCormick Thanksgiving 2009

Evening friends! While you actually won’t get this until the morning because the MIL doesn't have wireless so Hubby will be publishing this for me tomorrow.

I can’t believe this Thanksgiving day has come to an end! I loved being here in the South with Hubby’s family, but I couldn’t help to miss mine at home today.

I have to say there is something to be said about all the beautiful homes here in the South.

We had a three hour drive to the MIL’s house today so dinner didn’t start until around 6pm, which meant I had a few sausage balls on the way over as well as a Pumpkin Spice Cappuccino ;) While the ladies were in the kitchen the boys were watching football and looking at the ads for tomorrows big SALES!

I made a sweet potato casserole from Bella Eats.  It had a pecan and brown sugar topping that tasted so scrumptious I could have eaten the whole thing!

My favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner is the cornbread dressing! I am so glad this holiday only comes once a year, because I could eat this whole dish!

We celebrated with a bottle of Martini and Rossi.

My plate, I went with a little of everything minus the rolls because I can have those any time of the year.

We toasted and gave Thanks for the clothes we have on our backs, the shelter over our heads, the food we have to eat, and each other!

As if we weren’t full enough, what is Thanksgiving without PIE?! I enjoyed a sliver of Apple pie, and some of Paula Dean’s Pecan Pie!

After dinner we all sat around looking at old pictures of the McCormick family. Hubby was an adorable baby, he also weighed 9 pounds!
