Joe carving up the turkey.This year for Thanksgiving, we decided to host our own dinner and invite TONS of friends. Joe and I cooked the turkey, mashed potatoes, and stuffing while everyone else brought side dishes and dessert. Everything turned out so good! We stuffed ourselves as all good Americans do and then sat around in the living room and chatted the afternoon away. That night, Joe did what he does best...built a campfire! Everyone gathered around with their second plate of food and continued to celebrate the holiday. After the fire went out, we all nestled in and watched a movie and took some much needed naps. Although we definitely missed being with family, we sure had a blast celebrating with our friends and feel we brought in the holidays with a bang. Hope everyone's Thanksgiving was a winner. All the best.
