Our Thanksgiving is winding down.. and we are all lazy and laying around the house and I figured I would share some  pictures of what went down around here. 

I did a ton of cooking..

 Got the turkey breast in the oven. .

Got the carrots sliced up and tyme chopped up...

They looked delicious before they even went in the oven.. 


 Got the squash ready.. 

Gosh.. squash is always so hard to cut up.. 

This is the Pioneer Woman's recipe.. The squash is coated with butter, brown sugar and rosemary. Yummmmmm..

I got the green beans ready too. 

 I quickly got the bread ready. 

The carrots cooked up really beautifully.. 

and they tasted amazing.. amazing.. amazing..


The turkey breast came out amazing looking and amazing smelling. 

 Little by little the table was getting filled up. 

The dessert table filled up quickly too.. and I got into the wine too! 


 At last.. Dinner was served! 

It was really good. Everyone got quiet and filled up. 

 All the food was amazing.. 

But I had to move all the table decorations away to fit all the food.. Yea.. maybe a little too much for 4 people.. BUT.. I won't have to cook for a week! 

We picked up the dining room table.. and then found ways to relax.. 

The boys decided to play video games.. 

I laid around with them for a short amount of time and 

now I am laid up in the bed.. being lazy thinking about a long hot bath! 

But lets not forget today was about being thankful..
