Thanksgiving 2016

Posted by Amy O. , Sunday, January 15, 2017 11:00 AM

We hosted the Odens for our second Sacramento Thanksgiving, and I just couldn't get enough of this foggy but crisp fall morning.  I think the Oregonian in me is still recovering from weirdly hot SoCal Thanksgivings with no leaves on the ground. Now this was more like it...



Our turkey this year, a 24 pounder...

First major holiday with our new chairs - love them!!

The kids were not too keen on Mama's idea for a photo shoot...this was like pulling teeth...




Kitchen spazz!
I know this picture doesn't look like much, but this is the gravy that turned out perfectly.  It's always touch-and-go.  It's always the nagging worry as I head into the holiday.  I had two false starts, but the third one this year turned into perfect turkey gravy, and for that, I was exceedingly thankful.


Post-meal gifts from Granma

This boy.



Shortly after gifts, my little man just fell asleep right on me, and was out for the rest of the night.


 I have a picture like this from last year, too, same spot :-).
Reading the next morning with Grampa & Granma...
