Of course, the girls do all the cooking it seems for these family gatherings! I baked my first ever turkey and didn't even get a picture of it before Allan carved it! It was such a pretty turkey too! I made a chocolate caramel pecan pie from the November Southern Living magazine. It was scrumptious!! I also made my Paula Deen brownies which in recent years has become a must-have dessert. We had lots of other good food too. I don't know why I mentioned mainly desserts...well, yes, I do know why...because I LOVE THEM!

We all ate until we couldn't hardly move but it was well worth it! Since it was such a pretty day, we ended up outside for most of the rest of the day.

All in all, it was a wonderful day. We sure missed the ones that couldn't be with us and hope next year we'll be back to our regularly scheduled family Thanksgiving.
One last thing...as I wrote several weeks ago, I am trying to break my Dr.Pepper addiction because Dr. Oz put a scare in me! Welllllllll, since it was Thanksgiving, and I had gone 10 days with no Dr. Pepper, I decided to splurge a bit and have one.
