Thanksgiving 2013

This year for Thanksgiving Day we were flying solo.  My sister was with her husband’s family and my parents were off gallivanting somewhere!  I was going to do something atypical and have lasagna for Thanksgiving dinner but we decided to have all of our favorites instead!

We stayed in our pjs all day (including during dinner).  We watched all of the parade and the dog show.  We didn’t have to rush anywhere! We had turkey, hash brown casserole, corn pudding, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, and rolls.  Tim and I had Mountain Dew to drink and Sammy had some blue Gatorade.  It was untraditional but oh so fun.

We were also untraditional this year and bought a fake tree and had it up before Thanksgiving.  It was fun to eat dinner with Christmas music playing and the house already decorated.

We followed the night up with unwrapping books leading up to Christmas.  Sammy loves to see what book(s) we will read that night.

As much fun as we had on Thanksgiving we missed having Thanksgiving with family.  We did have Tim’s family over the next night for a leftover thanksgiving buffet! 

*Yes I realize it’s February.. I am determined to get caught up!!
