We had the great privilege of having 3 Thanksgivings this year!!! It was a lot of food, a lot of family, and a lot of fun!
#1 Thanksgiving: 22 November 2009 at Sebastian's dad's! It was crazy busy with so many people there! There were 8 of 9 children there (not including their friends and children and significant others), also Grandma Strickler, Larry, Lori, Cathy, and Roger...for a grand total of close to 20 people! It was a mad house, to say the least! But it was a lot of fun and good to see everyone :)
#2 Thanksgiving: Thanksgiving day at my mom's! This wasn't as eventful as #1, but it was still good fun! Unfortunately, Husband Friend had to work all day, so we were able to go to the Turkey Bowl together, but he had to take off before dinner :/
We had the elders over and Betty and Eddie, so it was definitely a little more low key than #1, but it was fun! At about 5ish I took Sebastian dinner and we had our first Thanksgiving together as Hubby and Wifey! It was great spending it at Crossroad's Deli!! But at
least we spent it together :)
#3: 27 November 2009 at Sebastian's Mom's! Instead of the traditional turkey and mashed potatoes, we had italian!!! Spaghetti with Daniel's magic red sauce! And, of course, butter dips and trifle! :) The food was delicious and the company was great--we missed Erin though!
Thanksgiving 2009 was fantastic!!! Although we couldn't actually spend Thanksgiving together because of silly work, we are very thankful for the many blessings in our lives. We are very blessed with fantastic family and friends and we have nothing to complain about :) I love my Husband Friend and I am beyond grateful for him!
