As I sit here the night before Thanksgiving, I am reminded of the holidays of my childhood.  It was a tradition for my sister and I to spend the night before with our grandparents.  Every year our Mammaw would be preparing everything imaginable for our big family dinner the next day.  The one thing that we looked forward to the most, was chopping up the cornbread for her homemade stuffing.  Using biscuit cutters, we smashed, mushed, and completely crumbled the yellow cornbread up.  It was fun to see how much of the crumbs could accumulate within our "chopper" and then let the big pile (imaging packed brown sugar) fall out into the rest of the crumbs and start all over again.

We would go to bed around 11:00pm and this was extremely late for our grandparents!  Growing up on farms, they went to bed early and woke up before the sun rose.  I was always a night owl, so this humored me.  In the morning we would awaken to the smell of bacon cooking.  We would rush into the kitchen for our breakfast & then on to the living room to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade.  Our parents would get there about then & our Uncle Terry would join us as well. 

Soon it was time to eat, and the large dinner table was filled with southern style foods that I still cannot get just right to this day!  After we had filled our bellies, football would be turned on, while my sister & I would beg to watch the cheerleading competitions that were usually on at the same time.

It's been 9 years since my Mammaw passed away and 3 since we lost Pappaw.  Yet, I can still hear their laughter and voices that made us all feel so welcomed and loved every day...not just during the holiday season.  I am thankful that I did have the chance to cherish each day with them.  They taught us to love, to live, and to enjoy the things that truly matter in

I hope that I can pass this on to my daughters, and one day my grandchildren as well.  It's never to early or too late to start your own family traditions and to make memories that will last not only your lifetime, but your loved ones' as well.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Quick & Easy Cake Decorations

I don't know about you, but I love when something is quick, easy, and looks like I spent a long time making it! When I was coming up with ideas for our Vintage Apple Orchard party, I knew that I needed something cute for the cupcakes and cakes. I wanted a shabby chic, vintage feel to go along with the decor, but something that didn't require a lot of effort.

So, I purchased some pretty paper flowers from a great Etsy shop: Discount Paper Crafts and ordered two 6" cakes and two dozen cupcakes without any decoration from our local bakery. I then attached them to tooth picks using a tiny dab of hot glue. I made sure that all the glue "strings" were off & carefully placed them on the our cakes and cupcakes. These aren't made for food, so I did leave a bit of space between the frosting and the flower....just in case!

The result was just what I wanted. Beautiful, unique, and too sweet!! Give it a try...Photobucket
