Giving thanks

Thursday was a fabulous day to give thanks and spend time with those I love most. 

I went out to my parents house early to hangout and around 4:00 our family and friends filled the house.  Mike came for a while but had to go to Antioch to spend time with his family and pick up his relatives... He was only there for a little while but it was nice that he could meet more of my family and hang out for a bit.  Many family members were there, though due to traveling and time we missed a few relatives.  Nonetheless we still ate, laughed, and watched football!

This year my brother-in-law fried a turkey and my mom cooked a turkey in the oven.  Though they were both very tasty, I have to give major props to AJ for a absolutely delicious bird.  Fried turkey is amazing.  Next year we will fry two turkeys!

Also, my sister made the most delicious pumpkin pie I have ever tasted.  I am going to make it soon so I will take pictures and post them with the recipe so you can make the pie for'll LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!
I wrapped up my night by watching a movie and having a slumber party at my sister's's tradition and it is always fun.  All and all I had a very happy thanksgiving.  I am very grateful for my loving and supportive family, boyfriend, and friends.  I just love this time of year. 

I hope you had a wonderful day and made sure give thanks to all the wonderful people and for the great things in your life.
