Happy Thanksgiving!

Well, we've had a rough couple of weeks. More than once, the thought of skipping Thanksgiving entered my mind. I'm glad we decided not too!

Owen, Mike and I did some cooking. Mike made marshmallow salad, a recipe of his great-great grandma. I made sweet potato fluff and pumpkin upside-down cake. Owen is very interested in cooking and the kitchen. He was a great sous chef!

Thursday we went my Aunt Phyllis and Uncle Frank's for Thanksgiving dinner. It was so nice to get out of the house and be with family.

This was our 5th consecutive Thanksgiving with the Lakofka's and we had a delicious dinner and a great time as always! Thanksgiving is such a great time to remember how many thing we have to be thankful for in our lives. I am so thankful for my wonderful husband and son, our dog, and of course, our friends and family. We have been truly blessed.

The feast...

I couldn't resist an action shot!

Owen enjoyed his first "real" Thanksgiving dinner. Last year he ate baby food turkey and sweet potatoes!
