We enjoyed a great Thanksgiving day with friends and family.  It was quiet and relaxing and we had a great time together.  We went over to my parents’ house.  I love eating holiday meals there because they make all the food the best.  They think I’m just saying that so I don’t have to make it, but it’s true!

They have making turkey dinner down to a science.  Mom had a couple of the dishes prepared the day before, so that they only had to be baked when the turkey came out.  The turkey was already in the oven when we got there.  There was only potatoes, veggies, and gravy left to be made.


While the last of the food preparations were being done, we had a Skype call with my sister, Ashley.  She’s in California for school and was not able to make it home for Thanksgiving.  So we walked the laptop around the house so she could see video of everything that was going on.  Mom and Dad even gave her a virtual video hug.


We were blessed to have our friends Kyle and Gigi over for dinner.  They are such a sweet and fun couple.  Then the Ernst family joined us after dinner for dessert and games.  They are so much fun and full of energy.  The girls did better drawings than the adults and were so cute trying to get us to guess their words.
