Thanksgiving Saturday at Our House

Several years ago, we began a tradition in our home. 
Thanksgiving Dinner at Our House AFTER Thanksgiving.
 The kids look forward to having a little Thanksgiving all our own with THEIR favorites. Today was the day.

Late this afternoon we began getting dinner together.
The kids and the dogs joined Katelyn and I there.
Randy had picked up a Yordy Smoked Turkey on Monday ~
it required no long cooking time, simply heat and serve.
It was a full turkey all smoked and delightful!
We have all decided it was our absolute FAVORITE Turkey.

Then the boy's favorites:

Green Bean Casserole
Mashed Potatoes
Crescent Rolls
Cranberry sauce
 Stove Top Stuffing
Gravy
(Katelyn and my favorite is Mom's Bread Dressing 
which we will make another day.)
and
Apple pie
 








We had a lovely dinner . . . including the dogs. 
We had fun conversation - well, when there weren't full mouths.


 and
the boys clean up from dinner!
Daddy was at the sink right after dinner.
The boys pitched in to clear and put away.


Although we didn't get our Christmas decorations up today, I did put a little garland on the light fixture above the dining table. It gave a little festiveness to our Thanksgiving Saturday.
 

And now it is time for Christmas with the Kranks!
