This was our first thanksgiving out of the military. While we were in the military, on average we hosted 2 families each year. This year was a little quieter - my brother in law Corey came in from Minnesota to visit. Shawn had to work in the late evening so we had an early meal and quiet day. Wednesday I made two pies - apple and pumpkin. My husband didn't want apple yet he ate more leftovers than I did. Partly because an eighth of the pie was about 580 calories! haha... but they don't count during the holidays right? right...
Anyway, the only crafty prep I did for Thanksgiving was actually done on Thanksgiving day. I was up late feeding Sammy and found this cute idea on Instagram. All it took was some brown paper bags, twine and some diecuts. Easy peasy - and for sure a repeat next year.
Pretty cute, huh?
