Thanksgiving Dinner, Menu & Craft

I didn't forget about Thanksgiving.
No really I didn't.
Even though, I have to admit I am into the magic Christmas excitement this year.
What's on the menu for this week and our Family Thanksgiving menu to share.
Sunday - Easy Chicken n Dumplings (with egg noodles)
Monday - Leftovers
Tuesday - Vegetable Soup
Wednesday - Leftover Soup with Grilled Cheese/PBJ Sandwiches
Thursday - Thanksgiving (menu below)
Friday - Leftovers or dinner out!
Saturday - Hot dogs, chili, ranch potato wedges
For other great weekly menu's check out I'm an Organizing Junkie
A simple Thanksgiving Table is set.
That pretty green table runner? (Dollar Tree)
Our Thanksgiving menu will be:
Turkey and Ham (yes, we have to have both)
Mom's famous Chicken~n~Dressing
Sweet Potato Souffle (Mom's recipe!)
Corn, peas, cranberry sauce
Pistachio pudding (the kids LOVE this)
Cake & sweet potato pie for dessert
Banana bread for snacking
I don't know about you, but do you see anywhere for ALL that food?!?
Plans are to set up a folding table buffet.
It's about family, love and being together.
As my entire family will be here, 15 give or take an extra boyfriend or friend in the mix.
See the napkin rings?  Made them.
A toilet paper roll, cut in half (used these before here)
A bit of leftover burlap (from my monster frame project, posted yesterday)
With cute foam leaves from Hobby Lobby on clearance.
I just hot glued my fingers together it all together.
Kinda cute for cheap.
See that cute leaf plate under the napkin?
Here's a closer look
My weekend find at the junk store (88 cents each!).
Mom laughed when I told her she was bringing a sweet potato pie too!  We never have been pumpkin pie eaters in our family. So which is it for you?  Sweet potato or pumpkin?
