This past week was Thanksgiving Week! Which meant 2.5 days of work and lots of food and fun!
Tuesday my friend, Amie, was in town from Dallas. We attended a meeting for our old sorority and took the current officers out to dinner at Fadi's. After that we had drinks with Ashley at Julep and dessert at Cafe Brasil.

Wednesday I baked and helped my mom get ready for Thanksgiving Day. I made sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, pretzel rolls, and pumpkin pie.

Thanksgiving Day, my family was joined by my aunt, uncle, and 2 neighbors.

My aunt's 2 children both live overseas. We miss them very much and they miss our traditional Thanksgiving dishes - so I sent them pictures over Facebook.
