Thanksgiving 2017

Five days after returning home from our cruise, it was Thanksgiving.  We were unsure if Daniel would be forced to work, and therefore unable to make solid plans.  But, the day before we decided that he would indeed be able to come home, and therefore invited his family and our neighbors.  We began the day with our “turkey pancakes” as we waited for Papa to get home!

As soon as he got home, Daniel prepped the turkey and threw it on the grill.  We spent the rest of the day in the kitchen together.  It was a beautiful day, 93 degrees outside!  It was our first time ever doing the entire Thanksgiving meal.  I had always been nervous to take on such a feat before, but it turned out to be surprisingly fun.  In fact, I am super excited to do it again!  We did the turkey, stuffing, ham, fresh orange rolls, cranberry sauce, green beans, and mashed potatoes, from scratch.  For dessert, we bought a Costco pie.

Naturally, we ended the night with the kids’ favorite; “Don’t Eat Tom Turkey.”

We have SO much to be thankful for!
