Thanksgiving Recap

It was a busy weekend with my family spending the holiday at our house. My mom came down Wednesday night and helped me prep in the kitchen. Everyone else arrived Thursday afternoon and we had the big feast on Friday, with Robert’s family joining us as well. It would have been a little crammed sitting 12 people in a our small house, so we made a makeshift dining room in our garage. Whatever works- right? 😉

Everything went off without a hitch. Starting the preparations a week in advance allowed a smooth and low stress Thanksgiving. Of course, there were times when I wanted to drop a few expletives-like when the entire spice drawer came off its tracks and the contents spilled all over the kitchen floor; but in the end, I really am very thankful for my family. We definitely aren’t perfect and we don’t always get along like a 1960’s sitcom family, but the good times always outweigh the bad. 🙂

I’ve had my fill of turkey and mashed potatoes, and I am ready for a break from the heavy holiday food. I’m hoping to post some lighter recipes in the next week. I hope everyone else had a great Thanksgiving as well. I’ve posted some pictures from the weekend below.

These turkey plates were my paternal great grandmother’s

The sun was shining and the boys were able to get in a few games of cornhole
