At the very last minute on Turkey Day Eve we got invited to Cpt. Miller's house for Thanksgiving day. We were a little worried about taking both kids being as Sarah is still attached to my chest almost 24/7 and Christian has been having some iffy days this week. But we got there about 1:30pm and didn't leave until almost 8!! It turned out to be a GREAT day!
Cpt. Miller's wife and their entire family are so nice. There were also a few others from work that came to join in the festivities. I brought cheesy potatoes per Matt's request. :-) Nancy, your recipe has become a hit with everybody who eats it. So a HUGE thank you for it!!
Christian was great and played pretty nicely with the an older boy that was there. I would say he was 3 or 4? He was very nice and shared his trains and dinosaurs. There were a few family members that were kind enough to hold Sarah while I plated some food and chowed down. Some YUMMY deep fried turkey, some surprisingly delicious oyster stuffing, lots of potatoes, some asian cuisines that Matt enjoyed more than I did, and LOTS of deserts...there was a really rich chocolate macadamia nut pie that I couldn't even finish. haha. It was soooooo good though!
It was a great evening and I'm so glad that all four of us enjoyed ourselves. :-)
We were super sad that we didn't get to spend it with our families but were super glad to have not spent it alone. Thank goodness for good friends.
