Thanksgiving Day Recap

Thursday morning, my parents came over for some breakfast casserole. We then headed downstairs to the Charlotte parade which is supposively the 4th largest Thanksgiving Day parade in the country. It always ends with Santa making an appearance!
After the parade, we came upstairs to finish cooking (I had made as much as I could in the days leading up to it). Mom had given me these adorable fall leaves from Williams Sonoma that you could use to make the pie crusts more fancy. Here are the two apple pies that I made from the Pioneer Woman's cookbook and with the cut outs!
Mom taught me how to do the turkey this year so I'll know for the future. She was in charge for 2009 and it turned out great!
This is Dad prior to eating dinner - he finished off the excess cranberry mold that was overflow from the actual mold. He loves that stuff!!
Who knows why they were working?!! They were supposed to be on vacation!!! Couldn't have done it without them though!
Here is the finished product:
We hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving with your families!
