Thanksgiving Recap

Yep. I’m a week late and a dollar short; but if you’ll excuse me, I’d still like to share a little Thanksgiving Recap.

We had the most delightful time with our family enjoying good food, adult beverages and, of course, each other’s company. We certainly do have a lot to be thankful for.

Our beautiful local, free-range bird turned out perfectly juicy and tender. Not to toot my own horn, but over the years I certainly have mastered the roast turkey. We enjoyed leftovers of this 16-lb bad boy all week long. Our favorite recipe, though, was Tortilla Soup. I know the pics are unappetizing in the linked post, but oh my goodness this soup is amazing!

The kitchen got a little crazy in the last few minutes before dinner was served. Everyone had a job to do and we were all diligently working to pull all of the dishes together at the same time. LOVE my new stove!

Lukers had a difficult time staying asleep, because he didn’t want to miss a moment of his first Thanksgiving.

Dinner is served! Stuffing, brussels sprouts, purple (!!!) mashed potatoes, green beans, turkey, gravy and butternut squash.

Time to dig in!

Fake smiles for the camera.

And lots of diaper changes.

I know that it’s easy to get caught up the in the hustle and bustle of the Holiday season, but try to take time to sit down, relax and enjoy the small moments – a cup of hot chocolate, Christmas movies with the family, watching the twinkly lights on the tree after the kids have gone to sleep, etc. We are awaiting the birth of our Saviour – don’t miss the wonder and delight!
