thanksgiving was fun this year. it was very exciting to host in our new house! my parents came over, and the fixings were a division of labor of sorts. they brought and cooked the turkey, which was stuffed with stuffing that I made. my mom made sweet potatoes, and I made mashed. I made green bean casserole, she made cranberry sauce. my dad made pumpkin pie, and I made apple…
the night before, we made our pie. shane helped me with the peeling, slicing, and mixing up the filling. layla helped me with the crust (sorry, it’s from a package). she did the crimping herself. it was quite pretty!
while waiting for dinner to be ready, we had snacks and tea! layla was very excited (as were my mom and i) to have real tea in real tea cups! layla wound up not liking the tea, and I caught shane sneaking sips out of her cup, but he wouldn’t let me take a picture.
we had a really fun day and lots of great food. but I’m most thankful for who I got to spend it with.
