I've Got Plenty to be Thankful For

I realize this was several months ago, but I wanted to post some pictures from Thanksgiving. It was great to celebrate in our new home. We truly do have a lot to be thankful for; in 2009 we had a baby, built a house, and are still married! What more could we ask for?
"We're going to eat that?"
The secret to the perfect bird: lots of butter and brown sugar!

On the menu: (clockwise from ten o clock): turkey and cranberries, candied yams (my mom's recipe), old-fashioned turkey dressing (my great-grandmother's recipe), mashed potatoes with sweet turkey gravy, green beans with caramelized onions, and homemade rolls. We had sparkling cider to drink and pumpkin and cherry pie for dessert.
