turkey day

 here's a little look into our fabulous thanksgiving day...
we spent the week in park city with almost all the harts, and a wonderful week it was.
 what would thanksgiving be without turkey name place cards, pumpkin limoges boxes filled with godiva surprises, and last minute centerpieces made from leftover fruits and tableware?
 thanks to the lovely tablecloths and accessories provided by my even more lovely grandma, we set a beautiful table. 
everyone was busy, busy. we had so many helping hands.
 can't forget about the kids' table! 
(this year only a select few had the honor.)
we had quite the spread. each family brought something different and delightfully tasty to the table.
*note the pretzel jello salad... it's the house special. and there were not one, but two turkeys. the mashed potatoes didn't make it to the table. 
just two examples of those heaping thanksgiving plates, there is never enough room!
 there's nothing better than family, food, and jokes from rebecca.
 of course there was plenty of pie: pumpkin and banana cream, please!
it truly was a wonderful celebration and the perfect break. there is always so much to be grateful for, but during this time of year i am especially grateful for my family. they are the best friends and examples, and when we are together there is never a dull moment. i love my family so much, and i am so grateful for the knowledge that we can be together forever. 
(i'm biased, but we are all pretty good looking too)
 i am also so grateful for this wonderful man who happens to be my husband. i am so blessed to be able to spend each and every day and night with such a supportive, loving, hilarious guy by my side. the past seven months have been full of learning and love, and i can't wait for many, many, many more.  i loved being able to spend the holiday with my husband! 

what more could a girl ask for?
