An Abundant Menu Plan Monday

Our Thanksgiving weekend was so full!
I woke Thursday morning to a sneak peek of Wednesday's photo shoot with Britain Earl Photography. It's impossible for me to put into words what these three are to me. I am more than blessed, and SO THANKFUL to be able to say "these are my children." MY CHILDREN. My biggest dream, come true. (And pretty stinkin' cute, too!)

Movie Popcorn AND Turkey & Stuffing on the same day?  Why, yes please!
It's a family tradition to see a movie on Thanksgiving day.
The Muppets was adorable!

This was the Chalkboard Inspiration in our dining room for Turkey Dinner.
I love everything about it.

Our dinner table. It was just our 5 and Grammie & Papa this year. 
Small, but so nice. LOTS of leftovers!! We cooked 3 turkeys.

After dinner, Megan and Molly put on a play for us. It went a little like this:
"We are sisters. We are from England. We are going on the Mayflower because we want to be able to pray the way we want."

At the end of the night Molly brought me a "check" for $209.
She said it was for making a yummy dinner and apple pie.
Too cute. 

I hope your holiday weekend was as abundant. We spent the rest of it regrouping. Friday we stayed in our jammies ALL DAY! Over the weekend we did some shopping (bought a new fridge!), some cleaning, and LOTS of organizing. Getting ready to Deck the Halls. I can't believe it's already that time.
Fa La La La La La!

This week we jump right into Christmas celebrations. Matt and I have a couple adult parties coming up - looking forward to getting dressed up and festive with friends and my love!

This week on our table you will find:

MondayLemon Pepper Chicken Pasta
TuesdayAutumn Chopped Salad and buttermilk biscuits
WednesdaySouthwest chicken wraps and cilantro ceasar salad
Thursday - Make your own Pizzas (TJ's pizza dough is the best!)
Friday - Broccoli Cheese Soup

Happy Monday!
