Good morning, friends! Well, it is a new week and our slow Thanksgiving week is sadly over!!! We had such a lovely week!
I sort of got mixed up on my auto posts a few days ago - sorry about the seasonal confusion - is it Christmas? Is it Thanksgiving?! Wanted to wrap up Fall with our Thanksgiving photos today and then it is on to Christmas!!!!
I finished up the She Reads Truth Psalms of Thanksgiving study and enjoyed it! Then it was time to set a festive and fun table and make our traditional Thanksgiving breakfast of pumpkin pancakes, sugared pecans and sausage. YUM!
Then I sort of just puttered around and took my time doing whatever I wanted really. It was absolutely glorious!
Pretty soon everyone was hungry and so it was time for a snacky lunch! I fixed this for lunch a few years ago and it just sort of stuck and now we love it on Thanksgiving day!
It was a gorgeous day for lunch outside!
I love eating Thanksgiving dinner in the evening! It just feels cozier and makes the day last longer to me. Plus, I love spending time in the afternoon coming up with a fun table setting! I really didn't have much of an idea in mind this time except I knew I wanted to try the little wood placecards - the rest just sort of evolved!
If you looked at any of my Open Tabs links you will see where some of the inspiration came from for the chalkboard centerpiece and placecard holders. A little tutorial for making the paper wreath is coming soon!
We finished the night off with an outside fire! It was my favorite kind of day - slow and relaxing with some crafty and yummy mixed in - plus being together!!
