I made a traditional pumpkin and a turtle pumpkin pie. I figured a pie for each of us =)

We had Thanksgiving at our house with just the four of us this year. I decided to attempt to cook my first Thanksgiving meal which was a challenge being as that I have never made a turkey or any other thanksgiving foods before. I figured if I messed everything up we could find some restaurant that was open right? Fortunately everything turned out, and it was actually edible!!! Along with a turkey, I made sweet potatoes(Paul's favorite) mashed potatoes, gravy, green been casserole, Grandma's famous noodles (a thanksgiving tradition in my family) and 2 pies. I was going to make cranberry sauce but the grocery store was out of fresh cranberries so we had to settle for canned. I also made a spinach artichoke dip for an appetizer. We had plenty of leftovers to last us the next few weeks =) We had fun spending time as a family, relaxing together, and enjoying the wonderful blessings God has put in our lives.
