Our Thanksgiving was celebrated over several days, with two big meals, lots of family, and priceless memories.

Thursday began with anticipation of the Saints playing a Thanksgiving Day game against the Cowboys. America's Team vs. the team formerly known as America's Team.

I used a couple of bunches of Wal-Mart flowers to decorate the table.

I purchased the pot at the Hoosier Horse Fair last spring. It is called raku pottery, and is made using horsehair by ceramic artist Martin Price of Randolph County, Indiana. I love the pot, and thought it worked especially well for my arrangement of fall flowers.

In honor of the Saints game, I made Fleur de Lis cookies, and Jennifer and Bryan decorated them.

Geaux Saints!

They exercised their creativity in the process.

Matthew especially liked the smiley face fleur de lis.


good cookie!

Haleigh was happy just to watch,

even though she didn't get a cookie.

Andrew made time for a little hair cutting.

Lookin' good.

Sunday dinner and the kitchen crew.

And the dining room group.

Happy Baby Girl.

We celebrated David's birthday with the famous chocolate chip cake.

Matthew helped with the candles.

Shylah helped Haleigh ask for a bite of sugar cream pie.

Her daddy shared...

and she liked it! But of course she did. : )

We finished the night with a game of Apples to Apples.

Sam and Gumbo enjoyed the game.

It was a great game, and a great weekend. A full house makes a mama's heart full. So blessed.
