“Family Day” Take Two- Thanksgiving Recap

“Family Day” Take Two- Thanksgiving Recap


Thanksgiving was only a couple days ago, but I already feel like it’s too late to be posting this.

Oh well. Being late is the story of my life.

So…. here it is, our “Family Day” Take Two (since our first one turned out like this).

Our real family day was Thanksgiving.

It started with me teaching at the annual YMCA “Workout Before You Porkout”.

I know exactly what you’re thinking…… that is the coolest name ever.


Dinner this year was at Grandma D and Papap’s house.

I was in charge of a side dish. (Side note: I must be moving up in the world because two years ago I was in charge of olives and last year it was rolls. This year I actually got to make something. Ha ha!)

I made the Cheesy Creamy Corn Dish which I’m pretty sure is the first recipe I ever put on this blog. Pretty funny.

I feel like I have to put the recipe on here again since that first post may have not done it justice.




That’s it!

Easy, cheesy.

Try it!


Thanks to a wonderful bartender (aka Papap)


I had one of his famous cosmos within minutes after walking in the door.


What a great guy. Not only is he great at tending bar, but he also does a pretty mean job cutting the turkey.



I took time to enjoy my drink and admire the cute table setting.


Then decided to beg people to take pictures with me.


Did you notice Andrew’s wearing the same outfit he wore Thanksgiving 2009?

The boys finally got smart and decided to play outside


while I kept taking pictures (even though no one wanted to be in them anymore).


Ha ha ha!

Dinner was amazing as usual.


I tried to load up my plate with mostly veggies and turkey while still getting a sample of everything.


The boys, well, they just ate everything they could.

Then after dinner I indulged and tried a little of each dessert.


Someone else decided he wanted a little extra dessert also.

“Who’s watching this kid?”


That’s right. This guy helped himself to a couple extra servings of chocolate pie straight off the spatula. What can I say, he like his sweets just like mommy.



And feels just like mommy does after eating a few too many. Ugh.

All in all, Thanksgiving was amazing. We truly have so many blessings and things to be thankful for. God has been good to us and our family and continues to bless our lives in new ways each day.

Our family time continued when I went out to dinner with my sister-in-laws for some amazing Thai food last night.


I don’t even remember everything we ordered, but it was delicious.

I am one lucky girl to be a part of this amazing family. Not sure what I did to deserve it, but I am thankful every single day.



To top everything off, I even convinced my brother to go to the Muppet movie with me last night. I tried to convince him to take pictures of me in front of my favorite buddy Beaker, but it didn’t happen. Oh well. I’ll just have to practice my Beaker impression all by myself and wait for my next opportunity.

“Mee Mee”.

Calling it a night. I hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving! Can you even believe Christmas is 4 weeks away? Yikes!

Have you already decorated for Christmas?

    I may try your corn dish for Christmas this year. I made green bean casserole for Thanksgiving. If you like Thai, you should try Nattiya’s in San Marcos. It’s our favorite Thai place to eat and they will deliver to Escondido!
    Sorry I missed camp yesterday- I ended up taking my little one to the Dr.

    I’m actually so glad you posted this! My aunt made a creamed corn dish yesterday that was TDF, and I’ve been thinking how to recreate it. I think I’ll use this recipe!

    Happy belated Thanksgiving! It looks like you guys had a great day! And had some seriously delicious food! As for Christmas, we got our tree yesterday and decorating commences today!

    I am laughing at how your family gets tired of the camera. My family used to but I just tell them to smile because good or bad it’s going up on the blog and they might be famous. Sometimes it works.

    I hope you had an incredible Thanksgiving! It looks like you had some great family time and delicious food. I would have stolen that spatula and licked it clean too! You can’t blame him.

    Such a gorgeous family all around! And I still love that your bro went with you to the Muppet movie… I’d totally have gone too! My nickname is Muppet. 🙂


  1. […] look, Joaquin gets just as excited about dessert as his mama. We made sure to keep the spatula far away from him this time, but he still managed to get ahold of the candle. Don’t worry, […]
