I'm Giving Thanks With a Grateful Heart

Thanksgiving was wonderful. This year I did something I didn't do last year....I was organized! Lol. I started cleaning and baking on Wednesday, (but I think next year I might start on Tuesday.) We had 16 people. Our house seemed so cramped and small with all the people here. I told my Hubby. "We need about 10 more square feet"

We got a table from my MIL's church and also some chairs. We set everything up buffet style. I tripled all the recipes I made and we had a ton of food. My Hubby's mom always tells me she's concerned we are going to run out. I didn't want to hear it this time. So I made plenty. Guess what? She is now telling me we had way to much. Sometimes there is no satisfying.

My Mama, made some cute little party favor/napkin holders. She placed 5 kernels of dried corn in each little cloth sack and before we all ate, Hubby told the story of the Pilgrims and the Indians and the 5 kernels of corn. We all ate until we couldn't eat anymore. I was exhausted and then of course we had to get up bright and early on Friday to hit those sales.

Now I am getting my house back to normal, and ready for Christmas. I personally think that we should carry the season of Thanksgiving over into our Christmas season. I'm thankful for the manager that held my savior as an infant and Thankful for the cross that held Him as He died for you and for me.

I like the party favors! Very cute! Glad you had fun and had enough food. I'm always worried also about not having enough and usually make way too much like you did! Enjoy your Christmas decorating!
