(Macy enjoyed getting to come visit!)
When I first found out I would be working Thanksgiving, David thought it would be nice to have our own Thanksgiving a few days later. I jumped on the idea because, hello, who would turn down Thanksgiving dinner?!
(My Thanksgiving table setting!)
So we invited my mom and David's parents to come up the Saturday after Thanksgiving for a nice Thanksgiving dinner.
(My perfect pie crust!!)
So, for our first Thanksgiving as a married couple, David and I cooked for our families! I worked Thursday and Friday so I got home around 8 am Friday morning, slept for about 2 hours and then was up and cooking. (Well, I started cooking after 2 rounds of coffee ;) )
(This is the absolute cutest face I have ever seen.)
(Pretty girl...she wasn't very sure about all the excitement.)
I have to say, it was so much fun getting things ready for people to come visit us in our home! We made cherry salad, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, turkey, balsamic green beans, homemade rolls, and sweet potatoes with roasted marshmellows on top. David's parents brought stuffing and mac n' cheese.
We had quite the spread for 5 people! And every bit of it was delicious.
(First look, okay this isn't so bad...)
(Okay...it IS that bad!)
David and I enjoyed having guests in our home and are very thankful for our families. It was especially sweet for me since I missed out on my traditional Thanksgiving. But new beginnings call for new traditions and I think we have started a wonderful one! I hope everyone had happy holiday and now...time for Christmas!
