Wow, this Thanksgiving really flew by me in a blink of an eye! So much has happened in just a few weeks, good & bad! Four days before Thanksgiving, my husband's uncle passed away, and this was really unexpected. He was like a grandfather to my kids and it was heartbreaking seeing them suffer his loss. This was the only thing on our minds, but we still managed to push ahead and prepare for Thanksgiving. My kids love this season, and my son had been looking forward to Thanksgiving turkey all month....so there was no skipping Thanksgiving dinner at my house.
I make the same meal every year, and nobody has any interest in changing it.....by the next day, everything is gone! On the menu: 14 lb. Turkey, Maple glazed ham, mashed potatoes, honey glazed carrots, corn on the cob, and apple pie for dessert!!
I am also very happy to say that I had plenty of help to prepare our Thanksgiving meal.....
After dinner, I settled in my spot on the couch & went shopping :)
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!!!
