New traditions and old friends.

Thanksgiving means different things to different people. But for most, it’s a chance to stuff ourselves, watch football, and spend at least one day with our family and friends. Some of them, we only see on Thanksgiving because they are a pain in our ass, but we love them anyways.

Luckily, I don’t have anyone at my dinner table that I wouldn’t be thrilled to see on every day of the year.

So, let me walk you through our holiday…

The customary crab boil the night before. Yes, we began our gluttony a day early.

And on day two (Thanksgiving day) my beautiful girl baked and cooked and cleaned. I finally nagged her enough that she sat out on the porch with us and had a daiquiri while the turkey finished up.

This is the final result of all her hard work. Yes, 5 people will be consuming this feast.

Turkey, ham, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, broccoli cheese casserole, cranberry sauce, rolls, deviled eggs and 4 different pies. Not to mention the appetizers.

After an amazing meal we all slip into a turkey coma.

Once we get up, we start the debris removal.

Ta Da! No evidence that a holiday ever occurred. Pretty impressive!

Now, I’m watching Aggies VS UT with Jenny catching up on her blogs. Shemp and Louie are with the pigs at the barn.

It’s been an awesome day! By the way, we are going to Cabela’s at 5 am to see if we can win a gun. Lol
