On Wednesday, Mom made the pies for dessert and wrapped them up away from my sister's cat who love getting into the bread and cat food bags...no need for a funeral on Thanksgiving!!

 As you can tell from the above picture, I had a little of everything on my plate and very full from my First Round that I didn't try for seconds!! But my Mom's home, everyone treasures and eats the tasty leftovers that sometimes leaves several questions of "Who eat the last...?" with answer or not!

 As boy mom, I love spoiling my son around the holidays and this year I continued the tradition of getting a small chocolate turkey and turkey themed tissues for his place mat at Thanksgiving which he immediately devoured the candy and love cute prints on the tissues!! We mentioned why we are blessed and must always be thankful for our faith, family, and of course food! He loved the turkey and all the homemade side dishes that his Grandma/Mom prepared and the delicious Sweet Potato and Pumpkin Cheesecake pies for dessert!

Until next time...
