our thanksgiving

How was your Thanksgiving? Ours was very laid back and delicious! This is the first year in forever that we didn't travel to either Ohio or PA. Dave's Dad and Cindy were in town, so we got to spend the day with them, which was nice. We did miss the rest of our families but it was relaxing to wake up and lay in bed and watch the parade. Then lay on the couch and watch the parade some more. We threw together a breakfast of sausage muffins and pumpkin protein donuts

We ordered our meal from Whole Foods but we made green beans with toasted almonds to bring for our side. I steamed the green beans, toasted some almond slices and then cooked them with a little lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. 

Justine did an amazing job decorating and preparing everything. She even made a cheese plate with vegan cheese for us! That is on top of making some of their sides like mashed potatoes vegan for us.
 I stole this picture and the one below from Justine

We had fun snuggling with Reid. He was a little sick and just wanted to be held. He is the best baby even when he isn't feeling well. 
The picture right before this one he is laying his head on Dave and his poor little eyes were red. Cindy managed to get him to smile for this one. 

I also made a vegan pumpkin pie that came out really good. I want to make another one soon. It was really simple with not many ingredients. 

and then we ate too much
and it was amazing.
