we had a wonderful thanksgiving this year... most of all because we have SO much to be grateful for, especially our sweet baby girl, bella. in addition, we felt so blessed to have all our family together. marni & pepere drove in from NWA and then we all headed over to east cobb... we started with a game of flag football at lassiter high school... then we headed over to teenie & poppa's and began the feasting! we had lots to drink and wonderful appetizers... and lots of friends & family~ jonathan & elizabeth, todd, staci, christian, noah & emerson, jane & jim, laura, bert & alice (bert's mom), marni, pepere, teenie & poppa all joined us for the day... we began feasting around 3:30pm and the food was FABULOUS... lots of wonderful things, including fried turkey, stuffing, sweet potato casserole, corn pudding, deviled eggs, bacon wrapped green beans, garlic mashed potatoes, mac & cheese, pumpkin pie, apple pie and chocolate chip pecan pie... all i can say is "yum, yum, yum!!" bella even tried some garlic mashed potatoes (that her daddy made) and couldn't get enough... at 9 mths she is already showing her love for one of italian food's greatest ingredients! we are so thankful for such a wonderful family and such great memories... happy first thanksgiving, sweet bella bean!! we love you!
