Thanksgiving Brunch

We had a quiet, but really nice Thanksgiving this year! Because of the A&M Football game (which I don't want to talk about!) we decided to stay put for Thanksgiving. We started the morning with a brunch which was a nice change from the traditional Thanksgiving. We made Pumpkin spiced cream cheese rolls so YUMMY and Cracker Barrel Hash Browns also SO good! I made pumpkin spice lattes and mimosas too. We had one failed attempt at bacon egg cups. My muffin tins will never be the same!!!



Here is the brunch table setting. Burlap runner and iron candle sticks. Simple and warm.

We had planned to have my sister and her husband over and also our best friends, The Clemens, over that morning. Plans didn't work out that way because their little girl woke up with a tummy bug that morning! They had to go to the hospital instead! BUMMER! She recovered quickly though and we celebrated with them on Friday evening. Richard went to the football game on Thursday, got home at 2:30 am, my alarm went off at 3:30 for Black Friday shopping. Tag! Our shopping was awesome! Most of the stores were so empty, but good deals were everywhere! I finished the kids Christmas and found a few things for myself!

It was overall a very nice holiday. We had Richard home for 5 days and really enjoyed some family time. I hope you all got the same. I am so excited for Christmas this year and want to pack it full of fun activities for us. I'll keep you posted!
