I LOVE THANKSGIVING! Randy and I have so much fun in the kitchen together making our favorite dishes on Thanksgiving! We have a difference of opinion on what constitutes a traditional Thanksgiving dish! He loves to have mashed potatoes, but it just wouldn't be Thanksgiving to me without sweet potatoes; he doesn't like cranberries, but I love to have some type of cranberry dish; he loves oyster stuffing (so do I), but I didn't grow up having that; he hates pumpkin pie, but me and Hunter can down an entire pie by 8:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving day! Needless to say, we have quite a feast because Randy cooks what he wants and I cook what I want and, well, we have plenty of food to last several days - BUT ISN'T THAT THE POINT, TO HAVE LEFTOVERS? Of course it is! This year we had my friend Mary join us for Thanksgiving dinner, so it was a very special day for us. We are so thankful for so many things, and one of those things is our good friends - and Mary is certainly that! Just had to show off Randy's prize-winning turkey, my pumpkin pies (Hunter's favorite), and my buttermilk pies (Haley's favorite)! We had a good day - and we are VERY thankful for all the wonderful blessings we receive on a daily basis!
