The Johnson family had a very "blessed" Thanksgiving. It was a very quiet day spent at home with the family. I woke up early and make the boys some Cinnamon Rolls, but when it was time to wake them up....we soon realized that they were both sick and running fevers :o( So we all just laid on the couch watching the Macy's Day Parade. The boys were rather good for feeling so miserable, they laid around watching tv, slept, or played with their Daddy. I of course spent most of the day in the kitchen cooking. This was my first year making a REAL Thanksgiving Dinner. I made a homemade Pumpkin Pie, homemade Mashed Potatoes, homemade Crockpot Dressing, Roasted Turkey, homemade Green Bean Casserole, Cranberries, and Dinner Rolls......it was AMAZING! My plan was to have dinner on the table by 3pm, but it was more like 6pm, and by that time both boys were EXHAUSTED and ready for bed. But we ate our dinner, spent some more quality time as a family, and then we put the boys to bed. We had a very good Thanksgiving in our new house.
