Thanksgiving Recap

We've had a very nice & relaxing Thanksgiving. My sister & her family plus a friend of mine came over for the Thanksgiving meal.
Here is my son & I.
I made a delicious Pumpkin Pecan Upside Down Cake in an iron skillet for dessert.
We had a dessert pot luck with friends in the evening and I made gourmet Chocolate Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting.
Yesterday was our annual Family Fun Craft Day with my sis & family. Instead of making the gingerbread houses I bought a pre-baked village and each kid got to decorate their own little house. I will get the same set to use for our Girl Scout Christmas party.
Today has been lazy with sleeping in, leftovers, and watching the Illini game (they lost!) at a friend's house. Now we wait to see if they get a bowl bid. We have a group of friends coming over to watch the Bears game tomorrow and will be serving King Ranch Turkey (enchilada casserole). I still have enough leftover turkey to freeze!
