I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving break, ate some great food and enjoyed some great company.
It’s always great to be with the entire family. My siblings and I are so spread out (Charlotte, Chicago, Nashville and Boston) so I love an opportunity for us all to be in one place.
Here are some of my highlights from the Thanksgiving break!
This was definitely a first for me, and I enjoyed it more than I thought I would!
The guns were rather heavy and took a little getting used to. We did about 7-8 different obstacles, and it felt so good when you hit the bait aka “clay pigeons.”
Tater met Lucy, my parents’ dog.
Tater loved running around the golf course.
Teaming Up For Thanksgiving Dinner
My mom put together an awesome spread and menu. My dad fried a delicious turkey, and we all contributed side dishes. I made my Wild Blueberry Sweet Potato Bread and the Quinoa Apple Crumble for dessert.
My plate for round 1.
After round 2, I had to go for apple pie, pumpkin pie and pumpkin pie ice cream. And look at these cupcakes!
We have a family tradition of going around the table and saying what we’re thankful for. My mom also found these cute placemats (Crate and Barrel maybe?) so we had fun filling them out!
As you can see, I’m so thankful for my BLT readers!
Seeing my Brother Perform
The following night, we went to an Oyster Roast with a couple hundred other people, where my brother performed. Grabbed some southern food from the buffet, including collards, cornbread muffins, mac and cheese pasta, and barbeque!
We grabbed lunch at Moon River Brewery in Savannah one day. I was craving some greens before our ride back.
Then, we made the four hour drive back to Charlotte. It was a relaxing break. When Tater would let us, we slept in. I got some reading done.
We played family games (heads up had us cracking up!), enjoyed delicious food, told stories and caught up, went for bike rides and runs, and just sat around doing nothing.
My kind of family get together.
How was your Thanksgiving? Do you have any family traditions?
