Blessings Counted

 First blessing counted for me was that all four of us were together today.  It means more now that Kota was gone for awhile.  We had a small meal with one of my favorites, homemade dinner rolls.  My family usually makes Great Grandma Steigerwalt's recipe every year.  It makes about 5 dozen rolls.  I made a 1/2 batch.  We had breakfast out of these rolls too.  Mmmm!
Kyle brought a new tradition to me when we got married.  Homemade whipping cream, I do not recall ever eating homemade whipped cream, before being married.  I'm pretty sure I only remember Cool Whip.
 With just the four of us I don't cook a big turkey, as we don't do well with leftovers.  So we  made a turkey breast and Kyle takes over the carving of the little piece of meat.  It was so tender and juicy and delicious!
I only caught a picture of Kayla before putting the camera down and getting the final touches together.
 Kyle filled the bird feeder twice today so even the birds had a Thanksgiving feast.  We enjoy watching the local birds coming around and visiting the backyard feeder.
It was a nice, quiet day at our house.  Just what I needed. 


  1. Looks like you had a nice day with your crew. I was raised with Cool Whip too, and must confess that I have a strong preference for it now. :)

  2. Looks like the Crawfords had a great Thanksgiving too! I love homemade whipcream...so much better than cool whip! Enjoy the weekend and I'm thankful we're friends and blog buddies!

  3. You and your family had a perfect day! Nice, quiet days are just what I would love, too!
