Thanksgiving 2016

Since I was 38 weeks pregnant on Thanksgiving Day this year, we decided to stay local and not travel for the holiday.  We definitely missed seeing Scott's family and spending time with them, but the non-travel idea was awesome.  Low stress!

We hosted Thanksgiving dinner with my parents and some friends from church.
Scott made his first ever turkey.  It was phenomenal.  WELL DONE CHEF SCOTT.
His success was no doubt due to the intense oversight committee present.


Once friends arrived, the playing commenced. We had a nice spread of ages represented: 8, 6, 5, 4, and 2.

Fun, fun times.

More oversight on the carving of the bird.

The food spread.

The kid table. Note the kids ate on the easy-to-clean-tile floor.

The adults braved eating on the carpet.

My double layer pumpkin pie.

Scott's blackberry cobbler.

All in all we had a grand time.  May your first time holiday-hosting ventures go as well as this one did!
