Giving Thanks

It was just a quiet Thanksgiving here at our house this year.  I cooked for the four of us but made enough food to feed 14 or more.  The leftovers were good while they lasted!  The kids watched a little bit of that big parade in NYC and decided to make up a marching band of their own.  It was stinking cute watching them build instruments and then march around the house.

Around 2:30 after hours of cooking, we sat down to eat our delicious meal of turkey, dressing, potatoes, green bean casserole, rolls and homemade cranberry sauce.  Not really trying to toot my own horn but I was proud of myself for making everything from scratch.  Well, except for the rolls.  I was not going to take time to do bread.  I thank Pills.bury for doing the work there!

We spent the rest of the day watching football, talking to family on the phone and eating dessert.  It was nice to spend our last Thanksgiving as a military family by ourselves.  It's hard to believe that this time next year we will be back in Indiana having Thanksgiving with family there. 

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving with your families!
