My first Thanksgiving!!

Well this year I hosted my first Thanksgiving! It was only my mom and my sister and a couple friends, but it was still very exciting for me! We brined the turkey the night before in some yummy spices. And then in the morning we lathered it up with butter and some more spices. When it came out of the oven, it was so golden brown and beautiful! It was so much fun. We also had yummy mashed potatoes, crock pot stuffing, vegetables, and of course gravy! It was so much fun having my mom and sister in the kitchen doing thanksgiving dinner together! I wish my whole family could have been here but we had a blast. Thanks to Lee and Heather for coming and bringing delicious cheesecake! We got to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade while daddy went and played football, which was so fun and then we watched the Dog show too!! Eden and Ella were so funny while we watched all the different types of dogs. They want one so bad! Sorry girls...mommy is NOT ready for a puppy! I have so many things to be thankful for in my life. I have a wonderful, loving husband and 2, almost 3, beautiful girls. We have such amazing families that we love and cherish so much. We are very lucky and so blessed for everything we have. I'm so thankful for the gospel and the knowledge that I get to spend eternity with my best friends! I'm so thankful for Jesus Christ. I'm so excited to celebrate his birth in just a few weeks! (We already decorated!!) I hope everyone's thanksgiving was as great as ours was!!
