A Blessed Thanksgiving

My Thanksgiving was a blessed one, it started on Wednesday when my two granddaughters, Morgan and Anna came to spend the day and night with me.  We baked and cooked all day on Wednesday, sang Christmas Carols and had a great time together.

 Morgan made the pumpkin pie
Anna made the crust look prettier by crimping the edges.

They worked together to make Blondies.

Morgan loves to cook and bake, Anna enjoys helping.  Here are a few photo's of some of the deserts.

  Bagel Bites ( well they are really a desert)

 Sweet Potato Pie

Like every Holiday we all ate so much, but the Love and being together is the most important thing.
Have you ever tried to take a picture and someone (or grands) jumps into it just as you snapped it?  But they are cute, but silly!

See the corner of my oldest grandson, holding Madi up. (silly boys )

Finally got the picture of my 3 daughters, after running the boys off.

Oops!  I see some shoes with legs behind the girls.

We always have to get a new photo of all 6 of them when we can talk them into being still a minute. 

Have a Blessed Weekend


  1. What a blessed Thanksgiving with your family! Cute as can be!

  2. Delightful... All your photos are delightful...

    I didn't take any photos. Not of making the stuffin', which includes next door son/"Grands"/Granddaughter's boy friend. And not of the Big Day itself, with the Feast.


  3. Oh it sure looks like you enjoyed a wonderful holiday with your loved ones, Syl- I am so happy for you! Hugs!

  4. What a happy bunch! You certainly are blessed and they all look wonderfully happy. :)

  5. You have a beautiful family, Sylvia. Looks like they are great cooks, too! Glad you enjoyed your Thanksgiving!

  6. Love these pictures! You have a beautiful family...girls, boys and all...they look like a happy bunch! You are also blessed to have granddaughter who enjoy coming to help Grandma get ready for Thanksgiving! I have three boys...only one is married and I have one grandson...but they live way up north so we don't get to see them often. My boys here at home are wonderful helpers...and I am so blessed...but I keep praying for some more daughters in law and maybe a granddaughter or two someday I can pass on the "duties" of preparing Thanksgiving dinner, etc.! Until then, I am thankful for my wonderful sons who DO help! God is good. Thank you for sharing your lovely family with us!

  7. So so glad you had a great time with family. Your grands are beautiful....and so is their treats. :))
