Couldn't Be Beat

Another great Thanksgiving!  This one seemed special to me because Grace was able to eat everything, so it really felt like a family event.  

Here she is, fork at the ready!  She was definitely hungry because we were trying to hold her off with cheerios.

Just for fun, we changed it up this year with a southern oyster theme.  We had fried oysters as a starter.  They were awesome!

The rest of the meal included a Nut Terrine, Oyster Stuffing, garlic mashed potatoes, mushroom gravy, brussel sprouts and of course, a pumpkin apple pie!  It is hard to get a good baby smile when there is no one behind the camera to look at, but at least she is facing the camera (unlike the 5 other pictures we tried)!

She takes after her Momma because the mashed potatoes were the biggest hit!  She may have eaten her weight in potatoes.  She kept asking for more, and she says "potato" very clearly because that is what she calls her current favorite toy, a Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head.

Hope you all had a fantastic holiday!  Today was a day of debauchery and relaxation, tomorrow is a day of cleaning.
