Although we are not having our "official" celebration until Saturday, we did have a pared down and simple version on Thursday.
I cannot get this picture to show up with the correct rotation, so blah. In any case, you can still make out Ethan's mood by the lip protrusion. Despite sending Gwen to wake him up with a marshmallow (his favorite treat), he was a major crank. He got better towards the middle of the meal though.
Gwen, on the other hand,was excited to dig in and eat her favorite part of the turkey... the leg! She was cracking us up during the meal because she kept dipping the leg in gravy and sucking on it, like an enormous popsicle or something. I'm not sure how much meat she actually ate, but she went through a ton of gravy!
Right now I have a pot with two turkey and one chicken carcass in it, making broth for gravy tomorrow. I also have to make two pies. I kinda wish we had NOT had a Thanksgiving meal yesterday as it killed my enthusiasm somewhat for preparing for one tomorrow! Ah well, I'll pull through somehow.
I'm so thankful for my family and friends that I've been blessed with. For the house and cars and material possessions I've been blessed with. This year has has been a good year, and I'm thankful for it.
