Happy Thanksgiving!

I have SO much to be thankful for!!!!  I am down in Raleigh, NC this Thanksgiving with my husband's side of the family.  We are having our Thanksgiving meal around 5:00 pm today.  It will be a great time filled with lots of good food and good memories.  We all bring something to dinner to help.  I brought the pies...my traditional Pumpkin Pie and I tried something new.  Derby Pie.  This pie is from a place that I used to work at when in High School and College.  I hadn't made it since college, but thought it'd be fun to bring the old recipe out again.  I will be sharing both recipes soon!  I also made my Mom's traditional and oh so GOOD pumpkin bread.  This is always a hit!  If any is left over I love it with some peanut butter....yummm. :)

Besides the good food and being with family, one of my other favorite parts about Thanksgiving is watching the Macy's Day Thanksgiving Parade.  Ever since a small child, I have loved getting up in the mornings to watch the parade in my pj's.  My parents would cook us a yummy breakfast and we could have hot chocolate in the mornings and watch this.  Such a great tradition. :)  I hope that you and yours have a very special and Happy Thanksgiving.  Count your blessings!

A little something to think about:


 I'm off to watch the parade!  What are you favorite things to do on this holiday?
