Thanksgiving Fun 2012


Thanksgiving Day was super fun at the Moss Homestead this year.
I decorated every single room up for Thanksgiving; end tables, coffee tables, entryway, kitchen....every surface I could find had stuff! Yeah, it's an illness I think. I go overboard a little bit.
The kitchen counters had all kinds of turkeys and pumpkins everywhere......
Real fall pumpkins as well as glass ones. It was really cute!
 Merlene and Don Moss came for dinner on the Sunday before Thanksgiving....
 Grandpa Don passed out his life history he'd been working on for 12 years! It was awesome!
Cute Tiff and Gary....

Family Picture for Thanksgiving Day 2012.....

Want to see some cute decorations? Well I have plenty. Here is my entryway table decorated for Thanksgiving......

   The kitchen buffet was decorated with Thanksgiving pilgrims.....
And Indians....and Look! I even made a little fall subway lettering in a picture frame! 

   More pilgrims.....the little girls love my tiny set of pilgrims and Indians at a tiny table. The legs are broken off of two of them now, but we still set them out.

Devin and Caitlin came from Chicago and stayed 8 days! It was wonderful to have them here. We threw a baby shower of Caitlin one night last week and she got a lot of fun loot! 
We played pin the hat on the turkey....the girls and Devin loved it! (Devin is just a big kid, didn't you know?)
Caitlin and Devin made gingerbread cookies for us to decorate. This is Devin's "anatomically correct" gingerbread girl....lol......
Sadly, it melted in the oven and we couldn't figure out which girl had the.....well....the....well endowed body.....hehe.....
Entry table in the great room was so cute! This candy was all gone about 10 minutes after all the kids arrived......and I think I had 5 bowls everywhere......what the heck? 
Thanksgiving table decorations......
Marisa was all ready to eat at the kiddie table....I got 2 little pilgrim bears and a soft turkey for them to take home with them......all of them loved the turkey. Megan got to take it home.....

One of the end tables in the great room......I love fall decor! 
The piano was decorated for fall too.....Happy Thanksgiving! 
Here's our buffet table with all the vittles in the kitchen.....

 We had lots of good stuff too!  I always forget to take a picture of the turkey though....sniff sniff....
The kiddie table with all 3 girls chowing down.....

Don't you love Megan sticking her tongue out? That's just special.....lol....
Coffee table decor......
End table in the living room......
Desk decorated for Thanksgiving in the living room...
We all made some fun pilgrim hat cookies with Keebler striped shortbread cookies, some icing, some small peanut butter cups and a slice of gumdrop for the buckle. These were to DIE FOR good!
And I ate a bunch of them...bad me.....
These turned out cute and yummy....Pilgrim Hat Cookies.....Made from Reeses Peanut Butter Cups and Keebler shortbread striped cookies! 
Then it was the ipad games all around.....and phone games.....
All 4 of these kids love ipad games! Even the 2 year old Josie is great on the ipad! 
Then we played Apples to Apples in the great room.....John doesn't like games so he plays for 5 minutes and then sneaks off to watch football in the basement.....here he is about to make his getaway.....
The little girls and Devin, Cait, Wendy and I decorated gingerbread houses and cookies...
I think this one was Marisa's house...it was super pretty! 
This one was Josie's house....very cute! 
Jeffrey always wins the games we play. He got 7 on Apples to Apples and I only got 1. How did that happen? It was a fun Thanksgiving Day hanging out together.  I will miss everybody. It's so great to be together.
