After a full day of prep, we were ready to feast !
We filled the table with festive eats.
The only thing missing was…
My MIL’s famous “dry dressing.”
My full plate of Thanksgiving goodness.
Of course, we had some great desserts. My mom made this cheese cake coffee cake dessert.
And I made a healthy pumpkin pie (recipe coming soon for anyone who wants to make it for their Thanksgiving) topped with fresh-made whipped cream.
I had a little bit of both.
And you know Bailey got a couple small bites of turkey.
Everything was delicious. We ended up eating a little later than I planned, but it all came together nicely, especially considering this was our first time hosting turkey day. We definitely couldn’t have done this without the help of our family. We were very blessed to have our families able to travel to see us and be there to make sure our first Thanksgiving was a success. And though I was happy everything turned out well and went smoothly, I was mostly thankful to have our family together to celebrate.
