Hey! I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving.
My family from New York arrived at my house around 2 a.m. on Wednesday, and they’re still here.. woo! We’ve all been hanging out at my house, traversing the Pittsburgh area, eating good food, and laughing a lot.
Thanksgiving food preparations began on Tuesday night, with my mom and I baking almond and pumpkin cookies. Wednesday morning, I made pumpkin pie and banana cream pie. My mom made an apple pie and my aunt made cheesecake. Dessert city!
The turkey was fully cooked around 2:30 p.m., and we ate around 3:00p .m.! We had turkey, sage-sausage stuffing, mashed potatoes, broccoli, corn, biscuits, coleslaw, and cranberry sauce. I thought it was very goofy, but we also had ketchup and sriracha at the table :p. Good food and a messy table. I swear my family isn’t usually that messy… we were just looking at Black Friday advertisements!
My mom and aunt left to go shopping around 7 p.m. (crazy). Everyone else gathered around the fire.For a little while, it was just my dad and I sitting by the fire. I don’t get to talk to him one-on-one very often because he’s always busy with work. We were able to sit together and talk for about an hour, just me and him. I think that was my favorite part about Thanksgiving. I love my dad :).
Also, I have some good news. My truck isn’t totaled and I might be getting it back sometime next week!
I learned the good news on Thanksgiving and I was very thankful! It was crazy to think that the crash happened on Halloween, and I finally heard back on Thanksgiving. I am so excited to get my baby back! Every time Pittsburgh had warm weather the past few weeks, I wanted to wash my truck, and then I would realize that I couldn’t. Now I can! But it’s supposed to snow this week. LOL.
I have more pictures to share, but I don’t want to make this post too long. I’m off to work, and then spending the day with my family because they leave tomorrow.
How was your Thanksgiving?
