Thanksgiving! We had it! Don't worry! We had it!
I'm just slow about writing about it because...thesis. But that's okay!
We'd planned to have dinner around 3:00 in the afternoon. Josie, Rachel, and Miriam played games at Grandpa's house all morning and cooked the turkey breasts (which no one ate very much of, though the kids seemed to love after I turned it into turkey à la king last week for one of our leftover nights). The little kids and I spent the morning raking leaves. Andrew spent the morning bustling about the kitchen.
Here's how our spread ended up:
We pulled up an extra table because my kids felt having to sit three kids to a bench was a hardship.
I tried taking some panoramic photos of the table and everybody around it:
They're hard because everybody has to stay so still and I have to keep the camera level, but you can see that we had good food (Miriam's cranberry sauce, carrots, green beans, sweet potatoes with marshmallow (very popular), stuffing, cornbread stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, and turkey breast) and good company (L to R: Zoë, Alexander, Benjamin, Grandpa, Auntie Josie, Rachel, Miriam, Andrew, and Phoebe).
- pumpkin spice lattes?
- pineapple slush?
"You're the one who wrote it on the board."
"Oh, that!" Andrew said, memories flooding his brain. Finally. "What's the recipe?"
