Thanksgiving 2009

Yesterday was Thanksgiving.
This was my very first holiday away from home.
I survived.
Hubs and I planned our own Thanksgiving dinner with some good friends.
We even took in some strays.
The missionaries from our church came for dinner.
Plus, a couple of single guys who live nearby
(they might have settled for Mickey D's if we hadn't fed them).
I was in charge of 3 of my favorite things:
green bean casserole, rolls, and cheesecake.
My friend Britney tackled the turkey, stuffing, and potatoes.
Dinner was delicious.
So delicious that we were too busy eating to remember to take any pictures.
I know, pathetic.
My first Thanksgiving away from home and no pictures to document the event.
But trust me, it was great.

Top 3 things I am thankful for this year:
1. a husband who loves me (even when I don't act very lovable)
2. a healthy baby (who will make his debut appearance in just 9 weeks!)
3. a supportive family (who I miss every day!)

Happy Thanksgiving!
(oh, ps, we woke up to snow flurries today!)
