The perfect day with family was enjoyed by all. Bean was a little under the weather, I was a little under the weather, but we still had a wonderful day, more than wonderful, it really was a perfect day.
The turkey didn’t turn out just like I imagined, and my burp bread was missing something, it just wasn’t the normal light fluffy and wonderful that it usually is. The cranberry sauce didn’t set up and had a definite bitter background. The sweet potatoes were the bomb diggity, and the potato casserole was just amazing. I forgot to eat any green beans and couldn’t eat much corn on the cob. I think I could have drunk the gravy. It really was that good. My pecan pie, for the first time in forever, didn’t set. It was beautiful and then I sliced it. Matthew offered to get bowls and Berry offered a spoon to serve it. The pumpkin pie was delicious, for pumpkin pie, and the whipped cream was perfectly done.
As many things went wrong with the food, it was all covered up by what went right in the family. We started the day with homemade walnut, raisin, cinnamon rolls and sausage. We watched the parade, had coffee, and then the games on the Wii began. It was declared and no computer day, but someone, who will remain unnamed, broke that rule. I let it slide…We really had an amazing day! The arguing was kept at a minimum, the joy was magnified by a million.
Even though we didn’t gather with our extended family or adopted family, we had a wonderful Thanksgiving and time really focused on appreciating that the four of us were together.
