Mayberry Thanksgiving

The buffet line started on the L for plate pick up, then ended at the silverware/napkin corner.  Everything was OH SO GOOD!

P1020820

Everyone is invited (required!) to come back Monday night and finish off the leftovers!

This photo of the pumpkin mousse looks likeP1020813 creamy mustard, but was delish and much more appetizing in small containers with whipped cream on top.  There was pumpkin cream cheese cake, chocolate pie, chocolate delight, and pecan pie.  And no photos and certainly no calories.

Amy and Macey arrived wearing my colors, so Haley P1020815quickly snapped this photo.  She and I are frequently the ones in matching colors, but somehow avoided it yesterday.

What is that white blob over Amy’s shoulder???  A little photo editing might help.

We played a few games of marbles after stuffing ourselves.  I wound up playing with the three young gals.  Ansley beat us, but the big gals cleaned up the kitchen, so I really came out the winner!

So today everything that is now clean will get put away.  And Haley will, pretty please, send me some of the photos that she took.  I’ll put away my fall decorations and at least get a Christmas wreath on the front door.

But more important, I was talking with my three girls last night about our door decorations…………for the ship!  Woohoo, we are cruising in less than 3 weeks!!!

Life is good in paradise, y’all!

Wish I had a cruise booked. sigh...

Love that you were color coordinated! So cute. I embiggened the chow line. Everything looks SO yummy!

Al and I did the dishes... or should I say Al rinsed and I loaded the dishwasher while MotherDear took care of the food. I ♥ my dishwasher, although I once swore never to have one. Ah, well. Changing one's mind is a woman's prerogative, is it not?

Enjoy the leftovers. We did, until the 3rd time. Now MD is making Turkey Soup from the left of the leftovers!

Have a lovely day! Big hugs xoxo

How fun honey. I thought about you yesterday. I know it's a lot of work, but it's such a great day to give thanks for all that we have.

Have a terrific day. Big hugs to you both. :)
