This Thanksgiving was one for the books! We had 19 people at our house (including two adorable babies) and a TON of food! My cousins, who I haven’t seen in years, took the long drive from NJ, with all of their adorable kids, to celebrate with us.
I spent the week prepping and getting the table set. I spray painted some of my mini pumpkins from Halloween with a winter white and then a top coat of silver sparkle. I was so over the orange by Thanksgiving. I decided to incorporate more silvers and whites as a nice segue to Christmas! Having the table set early gets it out of the way and lets me just focus on the food the days before Thanksgiving!
The food was a big hit! I made the most delicious turkey! Here is the recipe. I will DEFINITELY be using this every year! Each person was in charge of a few dishes so it wasn’t all ME! This post had our basic meal outline. Splitting it up definitely lowers the stress level for everyone! It left plenty of time for morning PJ playing and snuggles!
Once everyone arrived, it was non-stop eating and playing! We had a BLAST! Turner got to meet his second cousin, who is just a few months younger, and they hit it off great!
We even managed to get a family picture!
It was a Thanksgiving to remember. We have so much to be thankful for! Stew is healing super speedy and we have the most amazing baby! We are definitely blessed!
