Happy Thanksgiving!!

Bryan, Max and I were on our own for the first time for Thanksgiving this year, scary! We were originally going to go to a huge buffet here serving Thanksgiving food, but finally realized we couldn't afford it, so we decided to make our own dinner. Well, guess what? It turned out great! The only snag we came across was that it took a whole lot longer than expected so we didn't have dinner around the traditional late afternoon time, but later in the evening. That's ok though because I'm, proud of us anyway. We managed to roast a 10lb turkey, had stuffing (for Bryan), corn (for me), mashed potatoes and gravy, and pumpkin pie: delicious!! I hope all of you had a fantastic Thanksgiving and were able to eat everything you wanted!!
Our underdone turkey. We eventually had to cut off the breast meat and put the rest in the oven to finish cooking since the wings, drumsticks and thighs apparently take a lot longer to cook.
See Max hanging out behind me? There are so many things I'm thankful for, namely our precious little baby boy. He is everything I could ask for and so much more. I am so grateful for my wonderful husband whom even though is at school all day long, is willing to help me whenever I need him and loves to hang out with his son. I have a wonderful family :). There's so much more that I could mention, but that's the jist of it. A post about Max (who is 2 months old today!) coming soon.

Very cool! I've never cooked a turkey before. Not sure when that will happen either... this is our 7th Thanksgiving together and I've gotten out scot-free each time. :)

We cooked a turkey once, and had the same issue - we ended up having the rest of our dinner and having the turkey later, ha! I'm just impressed that you did all of that with a 2 month old baby!!!
