Josh and I decided to have a quiet Thanksgiving at our house this year. We have always tried to switch years with his family and mine. It never seems to work out when it's his family's year so we always end up at my family's, and I don't complain.:) But this year was Josh's year and we decided to stay at our house and have his mom up with us. It was just great. It was quiet and awesome.
On Tuesday night, we had Thanksgiving dinner with my family while my nephews were here. We had a great time with them and a yummy dinner my mom prepared for us. I made my great-grandma's creamed corn, which is my assignment every year.
Gavin and Branson love Josh. They just want to jump on him and play, and Josh lets them.
Rosie rode the Frontrunner from West Valley to Ogden and I picked her up. She was supposed to be dropped off in Pleasant View just north of Ogden and I drove around the area where the address was and did not see a train station anywhere. It was after 9 at night and was getting nervous for her being alone in the dark. She called me and said she got dropped off at the main Union Station in downtown, scary Ogden so I booked it there to get her. She told me she would stand under a street lamp and wait for me. I finally got to her and got her home!
We got up the next morning and I started dinner. We bought a smoked turkey that was delicious! I made PW's mashed potatoes and those babies were so dang good. You can't go wrong with butter, half and half and cream cheese. I know it's lame but I've never made mashed potatoes from scratch so it was kind of fun. I remember watching my mom do it all the time growing up.
*A Warm Home*
I hope you all had a very Happy Thanksgiving!
