Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Holidays Everyone!!
I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving Holiday!
It was great having a nice long break, ours was filled with lots of travel, family, good food, and an ER visit for Hubby. Don't panic, he is ok but his back is REALLY hurting him. To make a long story short he is meeting with his neurologist this week and I am praying we will find an answer to what caused this. I will keep you updated if anything changes but prayers for Hubby are very much appreciated XOXO
Moving on to happier things, we did enjoy Turkey Day and stuffed ourselves with lots of yummy food. The weather was absoultly gorgeous. Here are some pics from our trips! 
 Since traffic was much lighter with so many people off, I arrived about 15 min early to work and was able to swing by Starbucks to start my day off with a caramel latte and cranberry bliss bar. When they say bliss, they are not kidding! This yummy treat is filled with white chocolate and juicy cranberries, my favorite Starbucks treat by far!!
 Since Hubby is a teacher, he has the best work schedule EVER!! He got an entire week off so since the girls were at school he met me for lunch at our favorite Fancy Pantry. He worked there for a number of years while in school and its how we first met! They have some of the best food, for lunch I got the salami muffalata with squash bisque, olive dipping sauce and a strawberry lemonade...a bite of heaven!
 Thanksgiving morning Hubby picked up some donuts at Dutch Monkey, they were delicious and tasted even better while I watched the Rocketts dance on the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade! Those LEGS!!
 Nicole was not feeling the turkey spirit while I was trying to get ready AKA not holding her!
 There is not much in life I despise, one of the few is PACKING!! UGHH!! I just don't like it at all, this is just for a few days and the toys were not even loaded yet. Thumbs DOWN!
 But once all the packing was done we made our first stop to see my parents in Athens, aren't the leaves just beautiful?! As well as Taylor Turkey!
 Here is another great pic of Taylor and her cousin Katherine!

All the food was so good, I could never pick my facoirte, although I did double up on stuffing and cream corn. But I was not too stuffed that I couldn't fit it a bite of everyone of these desserts! Chocolate pie, applie pie, cheesecake and Nutella stuffed cookies...YUM!
 After the turkey set in, so did wanting to take a nap!
 Baby girls 2nd Thanksgiving
 My Mom had the condo decorated so pretty, here is her beautiful tables cape, love the green dishes and red place mats!

 I just couldn't get over how pretty all the leaves where!
 These 2 are what I am most thankful for
 Helping sissy along
 After all that playing outside I needed some more cookies!
We ate our lunch at my Grandmother's kitchen table, very special!
 So pretty!
 My beautiful & ageless Mom!! She was so sweet, she kept Nicole the next morning so I could catch some extra ZZ's, thanks Gigi!!!!
 Did I mention I love desserts?!
Thanksgiving with my family was lots of fun, we laughed a lot and enjoyed so yummy food. My family has been blessed year after year with so much, they are a blessing in my life everyday and I am forever grateful for their love and support. Stay tuned for Turkey Day Two!!
