Thanksgiving 2017 Recap

Thanksgiving started out slow and wonderful, just like we like it. We all slept in a bit and took it easy that morning. 

My favorite part of Thanksgiving was the first thing we did that day. I loved snuggling up with Piper on the couch, with my coffee, watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Watching the parade in our pajamas together is my favorite Thanksgiving tradition.

While Piper and I were snuggling, Nick was in the kitchen making us a souffle casserole for breakfast. If you haven't noticed from all the years of reading my blog, Nick is definitely the baker and I'm the cook.

Compared to years prior, we only had one stop to make this Thanksgiving. With my sister being home from Guam, it was no question, we'd be spending the day with her and my mom's side of the family. 

To share at Thanksgiving dinner, I made one of our favorite desserts for holiday functions: a caramel and heath apple dip!

It's super easy to make. You just spread cream cheese at the bottom. Top it with caramel and then some heath crumbles. It's done in like 5 minutes and it's a fan favorite!

I didn't take many pictures at Thanksgiving this year. But, as you can imagine, there was a lot of yummy food.

Since Beckah was home, we did manage to get some pictures with all of our cousins!

After dinner, we played some games and enjoyed our time together. 

At the end of the day, we went home with our bellies and hearts full.

  1. I was simply amazed at the architecture of this absolutely beautiful venue!! The environment was unbelievable. I was fortunate enough to visit venues in Chicago like this, we found awesome things one after another after another.
