Pumpkin Roll and Happy Thanksgiving

We wish all of our family and friends a happy Thanksgiving. This is the middle of the best part of the year for our family, between the NFL, Collage Football and the holidays it's a great time to look back and be grateful for all of the many blessings our Heavenly Father has provides us and all the loving support and blessings our family and friends have done for us through the year.

A great recipe that is perfect for the season is the pumpkin roll, it really is delicious and there isn't that much work involved just some time to refrigerate. I hope you enjoy it! I made it at shower and all the guests loved it and wanted the recipe so I figured I should share this with every one else that loves pumpkin this time of year!

Happy Thanksgiving! Drive safe and eats lots of turkey gobble gobble till you wobble!
