This is the gathering room. Those plates are so cute! I wish I asked where they were from. I think Macy's... maybe...
Beginnings of the food... not everything is out yet.
Dinning room. The foil covered pan at the bottom is the banana pudding
The Line up
I know you can't really read it but it says "Thanksgiving Dinner at the Copeland's" with the theme of the day and scripture.
We ate around 3:30p.m. and before Grandma gave a welcome, mom (Chris's Mom) gave the family scripture and theme for the day, and Nicole (Sister in law) led everyone in a song. The eating then commenced. Everything was great... especially the stuffing or as everyone else said there dressing. One thing I have learned is Southern Thanksgivings are way different from the North. But also, white people Thanksgivings are different from black people. I know that sounds racist but it's so true. I told Chris how since moving and living in the south Thanksgiving has been different. We actually saw pictures of other people's dinner on facebook (white people FYI) and Chris was like "oh yeah... there dinner is different." HAHA. But no matter what everything is so good.
We were done eating and some how left by 5-5:30p.m. and I even stayed up the whole drive to keep Chris awake, which is a miracle in and of it's self. We wanted to get home at a reasonable time because the next morning we were headed off to Orlando... another post to come. =)
