thanksgiving snapshots

I should call this Thanksgiving week snapshots.  We decided to put up a Christmas tree before Thanksgiving because we would be gone the day after Thanksgiving when we usually put it up, and we won’t all be back together for another week.  I love the smell of pine and the sight of twinkling lights at night, so I couldn’t bear waiting so long. ๐Ÿ™‚

Decorating the #Christmas tree.

We traveled West for Thanksgiving this year, and I cooked the meal while Emma G kept careful tabs on what was prepared and what still needed to be put on the table.  Brining the turkey is still my favorite way to fix a turkey.  However, when juice spills out due to a tear in the tin pan, it creates lots of smoke which makes its way into the food. ๐Ÿ™  Lesson learned…don’t use a flimsy tin pan with an 18 lb. turkey.

I did try a new roll recipe that was a hit, and I beat the kids in our after meal game of Sorry.  Everyone in this family plays to win. ๐Ÿ™‚
