It took me a good week to sleep off the jet lag which meant that when Thanksgiving came around, I was just coming out of the fog. We managed to pull together a spread for our family. We rotate our Thanksgiving every year. One year we’ll hit up Grandmere and Papa’s house. The next year is Ge and Granddaddy’s turn and then the third year is at home. I love to cook Thanksgiving dinner. It’s my absolute favorite meal. This year, despite the fog, was no exception. The only thing that could have made the day even more awesome would have been having Y home.
We made the most of it. I even made homemade cranberry sauce which was yummy and super easy!
Mark enjoyed the turkey leg. Renaissance faire, anyone?!
I made pies. While they looked lovely, they did not taste too yummy. Oh well, we’ll try for next year.
We played outside with neighbors and made silly faces… until it got dark. Then we made a fire and roasted marshmallows!
After Zoe got a couple of hours of sleep, I woke her up and we hit the sales (don’t freak out. It was midnight).
We shopped with my friend, Tracy, until 7 in the morning! And we missed all the crowds but still got all the deals. Insane exhaustion ensued but we had a wonderful time!
