Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays!! I know that a thankful heart is what gives me the hope that makes life more than just bearable!! It makes it exciting and full of wildness!! (good wildness of course!!) 

So in this spirit, here are some pics from our family get together at our house. We had 25 people. Sooooo fun! We love to combine both Mr Gorgeous's fam and my fam together…actually we pretty much do everything together…just sayin'…

 on Tuesday, my Emma and her friend Jonathan made yeast rolls! They were sooo tasty. I was afraid they wouldn't make enough, but one batch made around 40 rolls!! They were so proud!!

Here is the turkey mid bake…this is after 3 hours of baking, and just after I took the cheesecloth off of the top!

PB243756
yep, this is three pots of potatoes (15lbs) and a pot of giblets…(my fil uses the broth from the giblets for the gravy….ohhhhhh my, it's good…actually, I guess it's better if you don't know about giblets! LOL!!!)

love love love this pic!! 🙂

So we had Mr Gorgeous's sweet grandmother and her dear sweetie driving from New Mexico to spend Thanksgiving with us! And they have a dear friend who didn't have Thanksgiving plans! So we invited him over to our Thanksgiving celebration. It was very fun to get to know him.

I have to introduce him, because he's an author! (one of Mr Gorgeous's goals in life!) Stephen Grimble has a book on Amazon right now called For Love & Liberty. Now I can't review it yet, since I havn't read it…Mr G started it! So I'll let you know what we think! 🙂

Here's a pic of Mr G and Mr Grimble! :)

So now Stephen is an official Keller…he's survived Thanksgiving with us! 🙂
