We had a wonderful week and I hope you did as well.
My make-ahead Thanksgiving appeared to be a success. My guests brought lots of yummy side dishes and desserts so there was no way anyone could have gone away hungry. Here are a couple of pictures of the food (We ate buffet-style.).
As you can tell there was plenty of food. On Thanksgiving Day we not only had plenty to eat and a great time with our family, but we also enjoyed beautiful weather.
I wanted to show you a close-up of the Pilgrim hats Julia and I made. We followed the tutorial at Spoonful, but their suggestion to use toothpicks to dip the marshmallows into the melted chocolate didn’t exactly work for us.
We ended up with chocolate all over our hands. Trust me, you don’t want to hire us to dip anything in chocolate. 🙂
Yesterday we put up our outside Christmas lights, well my husband and the three oldest kids did. We don’t go all Clark Griswold on the house, but it is nice and bright.
Today the kids and I have been stringing popcorn for our tree and we are ready to put on the ornaments. I just love this time of year!
Here are some more pictures from our week.
It truly has been a wonderful week and I can’t believe it’s coming to an end. Here’s to making next week great, too.
How was your week?
