What can I say? This thanksgiving was...nice. Very different from years past, but nice. We spent it alone. Well, alone is a relative term when you have triplets running around, but still, aside from them, we were alone. (not sad alone, different alone!)
My mom was out of town, my sister and brother-in-law were out of town, and Brian’s family was out of town! Only my dad was here! He came by Thanksgiving morning bearing 3 of the best gifts one could bring...cherry pie, pumpkin pie and cool whip. Nice. He hung out for a few hours and watched the early preparations for what would be Brian’s and my first Thanksgiving on our own. We had debated about whether or not to cook a full meal since it would basically be the two of us eating it. Fortunately, we decided to go for it. Ethan began the day by watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade....
We cooked a turkey in an oven bag (thank you, Anabelle), butternut squash, yams, peas, stuffing, layered rolls, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and even homemade gravy! The only problem is that we still cooked for about 10 people AT least!! But it was delicious. I’m not gonna lie...we were quite proud!
In my usual attempts to channel my inner Martha S.tewart, I whipped up some place settings to go with our nice china. Ha! As if I was actually going to let the babies eat off of China. It was only for photos.
