Thanksgiving

We hosted Thanksgiving lunch at our house this year. It was so much fun and my family was all so eager to help. I did a trial run on the turkey and stuffing last Saturday and boy, am I glad I did. There were a few things I learned to make the whole waiting process flow better.

I started by soaking the turkey in a brine over night. It was so moist and I was pleased with it. It was such a beautiful golden brown color when I removed it from the oven, honestly, I couldn't have been happier with the color of it.

Seth read some instructions on how to carve the turkey and he did an excellent job...he even carved a little bit of his finger just for fun.


Gordon and Ellis got to discover the joy of olives, which they called peas for a reason I don't understand.



My parents were able to stop in and pick up my grandma and that was such a treat. I only hope that when I am her age I can be just as perfect with my wrinkled skin and white hair. I think she is just so beautiful.


We tried to take some pictures of all of the great-grandchildren with Grandma, but someone wasn't cooperating...


We were all able to fit on the first floor of our house and every one was able to sit up to a table. It was just so much fun for me to see everyone and catch up on their busy lives. We definitely should do this more than once a year.
