we had such a wonderful little thanksgiving dinner
at our place with my sisters.
we cooked together all day (plus the afternoon & evening before).
i’ve never had so much fun.
josh made a delicious turkey with homemade stuffing.
and together we made homemade corn bread
mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, wassail,
raspberry apple sauce jell-o, and an apple pie with ice cream.
so good.
what did you do?
hope your thanksgiving was lovely.
p.s. did you watch this thanksgiving video yet?
i can’t stop watching it… it’s really good.

    I can't tell if that's a dress or a top you're wearing, but either way, I like it!

  2. Rachel

    everything looks lovely, I had two great thanksgivings – one southern style thanksgiving lunch (blackeyed peas, candied yams, greens, baked mac&cheese;) and one more toned down turkey dinner (mashed potatoes, stuffing).

    it was just great spending time with family :)

    You're all dressed so perfectly for Thanksgiving and your table looks absolutely perfect. It's on my to-do list to put more effort into what I wear and how I decorate (as soon as I can afford to). Honestly, your blog reminds me that sometimes the little details like that can take a day from nice to perfect.

  8. wow your thanksgiving looks amazing!! i live in england so we don't have thanksgiving but christmas isnt far away!!! please can you follow me (: thanksxxxx

    Oooh me too! I LOVE your dining room table! Do you mind if I ask where you got it?
    You take the most wonderful pictures! I love your style!
    Happy Holidays!

    what an amazing looking dinner… that turkey is fab! it's so much fun to spend time with the people you love making something to share together. you're making me hungry!

  14. Everything (and everyone) looks beautiful. It's so special that you are so close to your family and enjoy each other so much. I'm envious! I LOVE wassail. My friend pronounces it was-eye-ell. Makes me laugh.

    What kind of flowers are those? They are gorgeous!

  16. We bought the table last spring while antiquing out in Lucketts Virginia at the Lucketts store. It's an old farm table from the 1940's!!! There is a ladder built in underneath to support it (or to rest your feet on in my case). We really love our table.

    And the flowers were just from Safeway Grocery Store.


  17. i love all your colors! it is so perfect to drench thanksgiving in peaches, pumpkins, mauves, roses, and chocolates…pure WARMTH!

  18. Everyone and everything looks so beautifully fancy! Happy Holidays!

    The Thanksgiving dinner look(ed)(s) beautiful! And I adore your outfit! Yesterday during sacrament meeting, someone played the Thanksgiving video for their talk! I love it! It makes you realize how much you really have and that you have a lot to be grateful for. Even when it's not Thanksgiving.

  21. oh wow that looks lovely! alot more calm than our dinner with my crazy boys running around ( not that i would have it any differently!) and i love that thanksgiving video, so so great. what is it about general authorities voices that is so soothing?

  22. Mallory

    a. i love your top
    b. i've never seen a more delicious-looking turkey!

  23. Jenni

    What a perfect thanksgiving. I really love these photos because in the background I got a glimpse into the rockstar home. It is so cute! I love that flower display too. It's so fall(ish) and is perfect for your beautiful wood table. Girl – I wish I had a tiny bit of the wonderful style you did :)

    The worst thing about going to NYC for Thanksgiving and eating out was that there are no leftovers. . .

  25. Hanako66

  26. CAPow

  31. These photos are so pretty…I love the lighting and your jacket with the puffy sleeves. It is so pretty and vintage looking! Thanksgiving is my favorite week… family time, my anniversary, and the beginning of the holiday season. I miss it already.
