Turkey, Grumpiness, and Good Stuff

on November 29, 2011

We survived Thanksgiving!

Don’t get me wrong, it was wonderful. It was also crazy – Turner has been Mr. Grumpypants and I think it’s because his schedule was so thrown off and so many people were in and out. I’m hoping he perks up again in the next few days. I miss my happy smiley boy.

We cooked a turkey in our oven and it turned out well! It wasn’t frozen in the middle, or dry as sandpaper, or anything. A big thank you to my amazing mother-in-law for all her help. NO WAY could I have gotten everything ready all by myself. I will admit, my deviled eggs were yum-o though! Jared pitched in a whole lot, he loves to cook and entertain so naturally he did a great job.

I got to see my parents in-law,  sister and bro-in-laws and our adorable nephews. I love those two cute cute boys! Sadly, with Turner demanding my attention I didn’t get to love them and play with them as much as I would’ve liked. Robbie did beat my socks off in a round of skip-bo. If I would’ve had a chance to play boom-o then Noah would’ve gotten me too.

Then, Saturday morning everyone left except for Eric & Aimee (Jared’s sis and bro-in-law). It was nice to get to hang out with them, because we don’t see them nearly enough.

Here’s some good stuff I learned over the holiday:

1. Cook your turkey in an oven bag. Seriously, just do it.

2. Crockpots are from the heavens above.

3. The Ruby Slipper has the most yummy breakfast ever!


It was a great few days, and I’m thankful to have experienced it.
