A Day for Giving Thanks

This year our Thanksgiving was so relaxing. We got up bright and early (7am) to put the bird in, whom we named "Tumnus." (It's a family tradition to name the Thanksgiving Turkey). This was the beautiful morning view on our chilly Thanksgiving morning.
This was the first year that Dustin and I had every fixed the turkey, and Dustin did such an amazing job on it! It was so juicy and filled with so much flavor.

Our kitchen counter was filled with different ingredients and cookbooks all morning.

Once everything was cooked and ready to go, we loaded up the car and headed down to Nick & Jamie's house, two of our really good friends, for our Thanksgiving Feast. Since our family is all the way in Virginia and it's such a long and expensive trip to go there for Thanksgiving, we decided to have it with Nick and Jamie. Every time we go down there, we take our pup Jalen with us. He has such a good time playing with the Hampton's dogs. Well, since the car was filled with food, I sat in the backseat with Jalen, while the food sat in the front seat.

Look at all of the goodies on the table. We fixed way too much food...which meant plenty of yummy leftovers.

Jamie was so excited about how perfect her pies turned out. Not only were they pretty to look at, they tasted good, too.

And here's the happy couples, sitting down to our Thanksgiving Feast.

We have so much to be thankful this year and this meal with our great friends was definitely something to be thankful for. What are you thankful for?
