Hello hello! Thanksgiving was a success! Whoop whoop. I cannot tell you how nervous I was to be cooking a full meal for other people that weren’t my immediate family. I had a headache at the beginning of the day and I felt sick from nerves. Now that it is all over, I can’t believe how worried I was. Silly.
I woke up around 7AM and went for a chilly 35 degree run to clear my head. I spiced and oiled the 21lb turkey then put it in the oven at 10:30 for 4.5 hours at 350 degrees.
Jimmy’s dad carved the turkey while I finished up making the stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, broccoli, and pulled the green bean casserole out of the oven. Jimmy’s sister, Laura, helped him roll out crescent rolls and we put those in the oven and sat down for a prayer and then dug in around 3:30pm.
After dinner we had coffee, cookies, and pie. Then we had some fun! We played cards, Just Dance 2, and Twister. We also watched Punkin Chunkin; that was a really funny TV show!
Watching the Dallas Cowboys win on Thanksgiving was pretty amazing! I had such an awesome day and I felt so blessed to be surrounded by such a loving family!
Today is black Friday and you couldn’t pay me to go near a mall, sorry. I’m cleaning up the house today and studying and then going bowling later tonight!
I hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving!
