Thanksgiving table center piece!

My Thanksgiving Day was spent at my daughter Lisa's house.  She and her husband Steve are the host and hostess with the mostest!!!  They always make us feel so welcome and we always have a wonderful time.  We stayed so late last night they had to be thinking....when are these people going to leave!!!  Steve's dad Jack cooked up the turkey, stuffing and gravy and as always it was fabulous.  His stuffing was so, so, so good and the turkey was moist!  I don't know how he does it every year, but I'm giving him the best tasting turkey award for 2009!!  Melissa made her famous rolls, terrific very large cupcakes and mouth watering stuffed mushrooms.  My brother Mike and I decided we didn't need anything else, just keep the stuffed mushrooms coming!!  I made up three veggie dishes.  Fresh green beans with olive oil, salt and pepper.  Sliced carrots with fresh ginger and maple glaze.  And a broccoli and cauliflower casserole.  Lisa made the smashed taters and all the snackies that we had before dinner.  Let's just say we ate alot of food yesterday!!  I'm back to eating healthy today!!  I only brought home the leftover carrots.  But man I could use a big bowl of stuffing and gravy......LOL!!!!
Don't you just love the table center piece Lisa made for her dining room table!!!  She went to the lumber store and had them cut the size board she needed and the guy asked her if that was all  and decided to charge her 51 cents for the board!!  It should have cost a lot more than that.  You can't ask for a better deal!  She went home and stained it and then starting adding all the festive goodies to it.  It sure made for a beautiful table.  I just talked to her and she's planning her Christmas center piece right now using that same board.  I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.
