A lil' more Thanksgiving

Hi, everyone...
I hope your Thanksgiving was the best ever...
Ours was EXTRA wonderful this year...

 We had, and I didn't get photos of,
a very large TURKEY BREAST
the best HAM....

Ever cooked one in a crock pot...?
I never had, either..but on someone's blog,
I saw the inspiration and I decided to try it...


My dressing this year was extra good...
I made 2 big pans of it and we'll enjoy more of it a little later.
It's so easy to freeze...

I always use the same ttablecloth for Thanksgiving...

just a few fallish items to help make a pretty centerpiece.

Two much fun with our sweet family.

...did somebody tell a joke..????

This is a long post as I'm ready to get on with CHRISTMAS....
No more about Thanksgiving.  :>)


  1. Crock pot ham - great idea when you have all that turkey taking up oven space for sure. May have to try that.

    You look so full of joy in that happy laughing pic, bj - love it - and so glad for you to have been surrounded about family for the holiday.

    Have fun with the Christmas decorating season. I am SO inspired and in the mood, my house is slowly emptying out it's holiday wares = used to be able to do in one fell swoop, but those days are long behind me. Step by step it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here. Hugs.

  2. The best photos are those of the happy faces! Wonderful!

  3. BJ,

    Thanks for stopping by..I am just getting around to my return visits....

    I do a turkey breast too but could not find a large one so i did 2 small ones!!


  4. BJ, I fixed my ham in the crock pot too. I love your table setting and the whole family there. What a fun time it is. You sure look pretty BJ. Hope your weekend is fun too. xoxo,Susie

  5. Looks like a great time! I LOVE the WS tablecloth.

  7. We've moved on to Christmas today! Your Thanksgiving looked amazing bj! So glad you could have a fun time with your loved ones!

  8. So many pretty girls and handsome men around your table. I'm ready to get on with Christmas, also. Sally

  9. I need to recoup and regroup before I even think about Christmas, though the tree, still in its box, is sitting right here staring at me.

    Looks like a wonderful Thanksgiving and I hope to remember the ham tip for Christmas. You look so cute laughing at the joke. Do you remember it?

  10. Sounds and looks like a wonderful Thanksgiving!! I'm ready to get on with Christmas, too!

  11. BJ, I smiled at the thought of you hosting your family in your new home. Looks like a special family gathering.
    Our Thanksgiving was a quiet day and a late afternoon meal with friends. It was a delightful day.

  12. I loved seeing your happy picture, bj! I know y'all had a wonderful Thanksgiving in your home. I have never made the crock pot ham, but it sounds fabulous and looks great with all the pineapple on top. I'm wishing I had a serving of your cornbread dressing!

  13. Bring it on . . . I am ready too!
    Sitting around the able and telling stories is just the best ever . . .
    Love all the smiles!

  14. Your table looks beautiful and it looks like you had another great family gathering! I think my favorite part of Thanksgiving is the stuffing, and yours looks soooo good!

  15. BJ, your Thanksgiving table looks wonderful. I have never heard of cooking a ham in a crock pot. What a great idea. I am glad you had a fun Thanksgiving. We did too.

  16. Glad you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I did also. Now that Thanksgiving is over I have been getting ready for Christmas . I have already put up 4 trees. Still have more decorating to do. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  17. Beautiful family time, together is the best way to celebrate:) Enjoy your weekend dear friend, HUGS!

  18. Oh my bj ... looks like you and your beautiful family had a wonderful time and so much good food. My dressing turned out especially good this year too ... don't know how that happened. Was so hard to even realize this was really November and right around the corner is Christmas ... I had better get my act together and get ready.
    Wishing you the best.
    Thanks for sharing your day with us.
