Hi Amy! You guys are organized! Your menu sounds filling and yummy, and I think your boys will be filled to the brim :) I do make a pumpkin bread, but I'm intrigued by the streusel topping/filling. I might have to add that this year...

We'll have turkey (frozen), twice baked potatoes, and that's all I know right now. My SIL is having us over, and I'm in charge of the potatoes. My brother makes pecan pie, which is delicious, and usually we have brownies too. I think I'll need a nap that day!

Thank you for dropping by, I'm so glad that we are keeping up with each other. May you and yours have a blessed Thanksgiving, and Christmas preparations too. It's a busy time of year, but one full of loving traditions too.
