It's begining to look like Thanksgiving!

I know I have been falling behind a bit on my blog updates, but my excuse is that it is just that time of year. I have lots to blog about - the trouble is finding the time to write the posts.

This is part one of my two-part Thanksgiving post.

Nothing says Thanksgiving like cute Turkey napkins.

We starting our Thanksgiving off a little early by having some friends over for a Thanksgiving dinner the weekend before the real Thanksgiving. Let me explain: a few weeks ago I was talking to my mom about our family Thanksgiving. My mom is just as over the top as I am (well, she comes up with the ideas and I do my best to get my family to participate). However, this year I too was full of ideas for our family Thanksgiving. While my mom and I talked about what we would be eating, the fun activities we would be doing, and what decor we would be having, I starting thinking about how I would set my table for Thanksgiving (that is, if we had Thanksgiving at my house.) Well, all that thinking gave me the idea to have some friends over for a "Friends Thanksgiving."

So, I started planning. My mom had given me some cute Thanksgiving-ish paper plates and I found the cutest turkey napkins on sale a few weeks ago and there was my table setting. I finished the table off with some table clothes and pumpkins as place card holders. Everyone thought of two dishes they wanted to bring and everything was set. I have to say that everything was really delicious. We ended the night hanging out and playing games.

Gotta love self timers!!!

These are the two desserts that we had that night. Not only did they both cool great they also tasted great.

I will be posting part two of mine and Justin's Thanksgiving later this week.
