Our first Thanksgiving

Well as a whole family that is....
I cooked for the first time since we didn't travel to visit family in hopes we'll be able to take a longer vacation for Christmas.
Our turkey which I felt so sad for when I took him out of the bag. I used champagne and apples along with some seasoning....Doc Handsome and Mini DH gobbled it up so I think it's safe to say it was decent.
Side note: I was so grossed out by the bag of giblets.

Our little dinner time set up.

The pumpkin pie I made which didn't turn out to be the most visually appealing pie, but I can say it was tasty to the max.

Food coma without a doubt...I was really falling asleep.

I adore him

We watched some of the Macy's Day Parade since Mini Dh has been waking up at 9:30 everyday...so we kinda missed the beginning. Then of course we watched football all day long while I was getting my cook on in the kitchen. Mini Dh was so easy that whole day and luckily didn't demand my unwavered attention until dinner was finished. We skyped with our family which was really nice because they were able to see Mini DH run all over the house and see all his new achievements. We ate dinner in candlelight with no other lights on and Doc Handsome even said a few words before asking me if I wanted to say grace.
It was nice setting traditions for Thankgiving this year.
