Thanksgiving 2014

From November 26-27……

The day before Thanksgiving I worked from home all morning and then took Lilli out to lunch for some Mexican food.  The place was PACKED but we had a blast.  One of her kindergarten friends had invited her over for an afternoon playdate so I dropped her off for a couple of hours while I ran to the Fresh Market and enjoyed a few minutes of downtime before picking both girls back up.


We got our turkey brining – this year we had a nice 13.4 pound bird.


And of course we had to make one last night before Thanksgiving run to the grocery store.

IMG_5471Somehow we didn’t manage to get a single picture of the finished bird.  What in the world?? It turned out great, even if we did possibly undercook it by 5 degrees since everyone was waiting.  It’s okay, I don’t think anyone reported back sick.


The girl cousins had a great time playing and we basically never even heard a peep out of them.




Abbi and Uncle Eric had a good time and Great Granny and Chloe had an even better nap on the sofa.

Later that night after dinner Bruce and I enjoyed some free babysitting and the four of us made our pilgrimage out to Opry Mills while Mom and Dad babysat.  It really wasn’t that crowded and we all found a few good things, except Bruce who found himself an uncrowded bench in the kids play area.
