belated thanksgiving post

 Bob had to work on Thanksgiving day, so family came to us this year. We had a house full and it was so wonderful! My mom pulled out cooking skills I didn't even know she had and everything turned out perfect.

The Jalapeno Popper Dip was a huge hit, I keep trying to think of a reason to make it again.

I screen printed shirts for everyone and after the 10th time of asking the men to put their shirts on, we got a family picture.

Here was the front of everyone's shirt. I don't have a picture of the back, but it said "a thankful heart is a happy heart."

The wooden sign hanging above the table was my Granny's. It has been in my garage since we moved here because it was painted with flowers and didn't really go in my house. I thought it would be neat to have it hanging for Thanksgiving so I busted out my sander and cleaned it up a bit.

Once I got everything sanded off I mixed half water and half white paint to white wash it.

I had already made these shirts for Ella and McKenna before I decided to make some for the whole fam so they had two this year. Ella wore this one to her school Thanksgiving party.

Hope everyone's Thanksgiving was wonderful too! We will announce the Thanksgiving giveaway winner first thing Monday. 
Now I'm off to decorate the tree and finish making the advent calendar! I just love this time of year!

Yay for a Happy Thanksgiving! Your grandma's sign looks so great redone... and I am just loving that chalkboard table with those fun markers!! I love the shirts, as usual!! Are you using your Silhouette to cut the designs or are you actually screen printing these days? I just got the Cameo and am SO intimidated by it! :)
