Meet the Sullivans: thanksgiving 2012

thanksgiving 2012

Thanksgiving day started out with a Sausage, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Casserole (recipe courtesy of Brandi from Bran Appetit). We had two of our nieces and one of their friends staying with us, so I thought it would be smart to have a savory breakfast on hand to satisfy everyone's hunger until lunch. I'm thinking I'll make this again on Christmas morning along with a sweet breakfast casserole.

Owen kept himself busy all morning playing with his cousins and all of his fun toys. See that hand inside the hole? It's holding his right sock. He was stuffing his sock down the hole where the balls are supposed to go. He is just a funny little dude.

Did I mention that our hot water heater broke and that no one was able to come by to fix it / replace it until Monday morning? This mean boiling water and hand washing all of our dishes. It also meant freezing cold showers, or venturing to the gym to shower.

Keith used to play Thanksgiving Day football with all his friends, but in recent years the traditions has fizzled, so instead Keith made sure he and Owen played "catch" with the football.

While my boys did "guy stuff" I busied myself with food prep in the kitchen. 
I added the caramel and pecans to my Crunchy Caramel Apple Pies.

And packed up some cranberry sauce to take to my grandpa's house for dinner. (recipe will be on the blog soon)

Later in the afternoon we ventured over to my grandpa's house for dinner with my side of the family. Owen just loves being the center of attention. I don't know if I've told you this before, but the last baby in my family was my sister (picture behind O). 

My mom and O admiring the fact that he and grandpa were both wearing hats.

This is a blurry photo, but I just had to share a picture of Owen sitting in the highchair that my sister and I sat in for so many family dinners at my Grandmother's table.

Thanksgiving dinner! Notice the baby spoon on my plate. O enjoyed the sweet potatoes, a little turkey and some gravy soaked stuffing.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones too! Now, on to Christmas!
