Ours was filled with:
I did miss those who couldn't be here with us, but it was still a great day filled with joy.
My husband did a lot of work to prep a wonderful Turkey to go with the amazing dinner
He got up early and prepped the bird.
He was very intense about his first turkey and it turned out just wonderful!
It was nice to have my husband's family up and we also had his sister's boyfriend's family join us.It made me really happy that her boyfriend got to spend time with his family also on this holiday. I know how hard it can be to have to split your time with different families.
The best part had to be getting to have another holiday with gramps. Gramps is my husband's grandfather, but since both my grandfathers passed away before I entered this world, I really charish the fact that gramps has always treated me like his granddaughter and I love him just like my own gramps.
I wish my parents could have joined us, but my mom hasn't been feeling well and I although I would have loved to have her with us. I preferred that she stayed home and took care of herself.
Happy Post Thanksgiving! I hope you too had a very lovely day. Other than kidney stone pain at the end, this Thanksgiving and I got along pretty well.
