Thanksgiving! (Just a couple of weeks early…)

12 Nov
This past weekend I had “Thanksgiving” at my house. We are going to Louisiana to visit John’s grandma and extended family on Thanksgiving, but we still wanted to have a dinner with John’s mom and step-dad. I’m busy this weekend, so we decided to do it yesterday (Sunday).

Saturday I went to the store and bought a turkey (I know, very last minute…) and all the fixin’s. I was going to just make an apple pie, but John put on his sad face and asked me to pretty pretty please make him a pumpkin pie, so I obliged. I made the pies on Saturday so we would have the oven free on Sunday for the turkey and dressing. Denise (John’s mom) brought mashed potatoes, greenbean casserole, and rolls.

My first ever turkey!
