Have a Blessed Thanksgiving Day!

May your day be filled with what is truly important……. The people that you love!!

Counting my blessing would take forever, but I can sum it up with what is truly the most important to me. To have been loved, first by God, my parents, my husband, my family and my friends. If you have love in your life, you have been blessed with the best gift of all.

Blogging has become such a wonderful part of my daily life and all of you are the reason why!! Thankyou, thankyou for just being out there willing to read, absorb and for letting me know what you think!!

Have a wonderful day today and I am sending you special cyber-pie!!
My Mom bakes the best pies ever, so to each of you have all the pie and whipped cream you would like……….

Tday pies 2010 001 (800x600)
Apple, walnut and pecan!!! Vintage cake plates are holding the pies. I have a silver revere bowl with vintage spoon to scoop piles of whip cream on the pie.

I used a large vintage French linen dish towel to sit these yummy pies on.

Monogrammed dessert napkins from Pottery Barn. If you don’t own these you really need to get some. They do up so nicely and they are very reasonably priced.

In this picture my Mom/Mima is saying,"I Love YOU Big Bunches!" That is what she has always said to my boys and their wives and now she says it to her Great grandchildren. They all love her Big Bunches too!

My Mom has been here for the last couple of days and these pies are her handiwork she is kind of famous in our family for her pies. All of my boys Looooove Mima’s apple pie.(it really is amazing) I have had so much fun spending time with her in the kitchen. There is nothing like a Mom to put the love in Thanksgiving day!!

Happy Thanksgiving Day!!!!!

“ Enjoy the Process of Eating today and Dieting tomorrow!!”

OMgosh Kathysue! I can't believe how much you look like your Mom!! She is gorgeous!! And her pies ain't bad looking either :)
How beautiful your dessert table looks, not to mention super yummy. She looks so relaxed now that her work is done. I can just imagine how wonderful your day is going to be! What time does everyone arrive, and when do you all sit down to feast?
It's so different for everyone.
Thanks for sharing your beautifully decorated tables and especially your darling Mom with all of us. It really took my breath away to see the resemblance between you two!!
Much love to you this Thanksgiving holiday!!
I'm so grateful to have had you in my life for almost one year now :)

Dearest Kathysue,

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones! Great to have your Mom over... I never have that luxury as she is in The Netherlands and there are NO relatives here in the USA; only adopted FAMILY!

Oh Kathysue, you do look just like your beautiful Mother! Now I see where you get your beautiful smile. And look at her sitting outside in a little pink sweater by the pool. We are getting snow here in St. Louis on Thanksgiving! Oh, and the pies look great too! Happy Thanksgiving and much love to you and your family. Love, Jeanette

Hi Kathysue,
Hope your Thanksgiving was a lovely as these pictures. It's easy to see that your Mom doesn't just say the words, she really means it. Beautiful! Thanks for sharing your pictures and your heritage.
Would you be able to share the recipes for those gorgeous looking pies!
Blessings to you!

Kathysue,
Totally love your dessert table.....those pies! WOW! I'm the one that's good in making pies for the family...my mom is the most delicious stuffing maker, nothing like hers, it's great! She also makes terrific turkey too and she's 80.
You look so amazingly like your mom...great future! Looks like you had a terrific and joyous Thanksgiving with your family.ç
Love always,
Fabby
