Happy Thanksgiving!

It's Thanksgiving, a busy and happy time around here. This year was a little crazy for us, but we managed to pull off our feast with only one burned finger (me) and one set of crutches (BadDad).

My hubby had knee surgery yesterday.Of course that meant no traveling for us this year, and no guests either. For someone like me, who cooks the entire meal from scratch, being tied up at the hospital the day before Thanksgiving wasn't ideal. Thankfully my family stepped in to help and our dinner was saved.

This year K-boy had to help me with getting the turkey in and out of the oven. BadDad usually handles that but there's only so much that a guy on crutches can do.

M-girl made the centerpiece.

D-boy, my little chef, helped me cook. He also set the table. Notice the enormous stack of extra napkins. This kid plans ahead. He even arranged a special chair for BadDad to prop his bad leg on.

I cooked.

And cooked.

After I burned my finger making the gravy, don't ask, my hubby balanced on his crutches and finished carving up the bird. 

In the end, we had a wonderful meal together.

Hmm. It's clean up time. Now where did everyone go?

  1. Love the center piece. Tell M-girl someone raved about it. Take care.
