Thanksgiving this year was the best.
For realsies.
Smith, Henries, Barclays, and Johnsons for the win.
(The only thing that would've made it better would be if the Dennetts had come)

I made 2 pumpkin pies.
Just so that I my household could eat it. (mmmm!)

I also made a triple batch of green bean casserole (traditional kind with an original/secret twist by me) (also, mmm!).
For the family dinner at my Grandpa's house.

Dinner was at 3pm and oh, boy was it yummy!
So SO yummy!

My grandpa set the table just like my grandma always did and he made such amazing dinner.
It was so wonderful to be with family (the people I'm most thankful for).

After dinner, and before dessert, we headed out to the cemetery to see my grandma's headstone that just got put in.
It was so beautiful.

They chose to put a picture of the tree they had their names carved in up the mountain and it was so beautiful.
And the ride there was only a party. More like 2 parties. haha (riding in our van is the bomb. basically.)

Then we came back for some glorious, glorious pie.
SO good.
Melt in your mouth good, even.

The party was re-started at my parents' house were we played some fun games (Telestrations, Boxers or Briefs?, and Are You an Idiot?).

Life was great that day!

I'm so thankful for all I've been blessed with ♥
