What a glorious long weekend.

I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving eating some serious grub and loving on the special folks in your life.

There is plenty of clinking of glasses:

There is a TON of food including three turkeys: one roasted, one smoked (my fave) and one fried.

And there are seriously about 50 pics I would like to hang in our house. Here are two of my faves:

So much to be thankful for… my most amazing husband, our precious boy, my sisters and sisters-in-law, my brother and my brother-in-law, my parents and in-laws, extended family, friends, our jobs, our house, our health, my bloggy friends, bacon, and the list goes on and on…
