We spent a fun Thanksgiving with my family at my sister's spacious and sunny house! We had a wonderful time, enjoyed delicious food, and simply enjoyed being together.

View of campus from the front yard.

The table was set with all the finery :)

A pretty fall floral arrangement in the center!

All the boys chowing down at the kids table, complete with butcher paper, crayons, and stickers.

Yummy Food! (I haven't mastered the art of photographing food, hope it looks semi appetizing, because it sure tasted good!)

"Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever."
Psalm 118:1

We have much to be thankful for! Surely the Lord has been good to us!

(Hopefully a group picture to come; its on someone else's camera)

Tablescape Thursday!

Every Thursday, Between Naps on the Porch hosts an event called Tablescape Thursday. I have never participated before, but I have enjoyed browsing through the posts. I do love dishes and tableware! In honor of my new table, I thought I would contribute a simple autumn setting incorporating some of my favorite things! The color scheme is cream, yellow and my favorite, aqua!

The centerpiece and salt and pepper shakers both incorporate some cute little birds.

The dishes are the pattern Jasper Conran that we registered for when we married. The napkins and glasses are both antique store finds!

Spice Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting and some leaf sprinkles of course!
(Wish I could claim they were made from scratch, but I don't think our growth group will mind a little Duncan Hines :)

For some really inspiring recipes and photos that will make your mouth water head on over to Pinch My Salt. I tried her Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese this week and it was yummy. Can't wait to try some more of these!
