Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope that everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving! We had a nice time. Dom and I hosted our parents. Dom was in charge of the turkey and did an excellent job as usual. I was in charge of the sides and dessert. My mom and Dom's mom also provided some yummy goodies. I got brave and tried some new recipes. A mushroom stuffing which was excellent. I also did the green beans with roasted red peppers. Instead of rolls or cornbread I made foccacia. For dessert I made a chocolate cherry cheesecake and chocolate chip biscotti. The adults enjoyed everything, but the kids well...Becca ate a grilled cheese sandwich. Kenzie, who will usually try anything insisted she didn't like turkey and refused to even try one bite. She ate mashed potatoes and corn. I did finally get her to try turkey the next day and she like it. The girls also made some really cute napkin holders to put on the table.
Boomer and my parents dog Toby, chased each other all over the house all day long. After everyone left Boomer was exhausted and curled up with Kenzie to take a rest.

Looks like everyone had a great time. The food sounds amazing!!! And the desserts sound to die for... all we had was a store bought apple pie. (Dad said mom's don't take right)

I love the picture of Kenzie and Boomer. How cute!
