We had the perfect Thanksgiving this year. There is so much to be thankful for and we are really blessed to have such wonderful family and friends that are a part of our daily lives.

This year we have been going at top speed most days. After awhile, this pace gets rather exhausting. With that being said, we both craved some major down time.

Our day was relaxing and slow paced from start to finish.

Our menu consisted of many traditional dishes but I tried to lighten the calorie load a tad ~ still very yummy!

I made a pumpkin roll for the first time. I've always been afraid to try anything that required "rolling" as I failed horribly at this process years ago.

Good thing I gave it a whirl because it was AMAZING!

We watched the parade, took a walk, watched a lot of football, read a little and, I even started my Christmas cards.

It wouldn't be Thanksgiving if there wasn't a little napping involved :)

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well.

My Mom use to make that pumpkin roll every year. Always so tasty! Glad your day was great!

Your Thanksgiving sounds wonderful! May I ask what Pumpkin roll recipe you used? It looks delicious! Which reminds me, I owe you a spice cake recipe. Good luck next week, re-entering your busy school days. I think we're both counting down until Christmas vacation! Thinking of you~k.

Sounds very similar to our Thanksgiving. Great to just stop and rest. The pumpkin roll looks delish. I've been contemplating making one myself. Figured the rolling might be a tad complicated. Yours turned out perfect!
