Yes I have blogged befor about Thanksgiving. Y’all know this is my favorite holiday. FYI there’s 363 days and count till Thanksgiving again.
This year turned out really great. Two years ago, I was laid off a week before Thanksgiving. Now this year a week before Thanksgiving I get a call back to the job that laid me off.
There was chaos all week. Monday and Tuesday I had to stop by the store after doing a 12 hour shift those 2 day, and boy was that a hot mess. Y’all all know the stores was crowded. Yet most of the people was mindful of others. There was certainly a different vibe while shopping in a crowded store. I spend most of my time avoiding crowds because often times people are just rude. So Monday and Tuesday after 12 hour shifts I get everything needed for Thanksgiving dinner, EXCEPT pie shells. So I decided fine I’ll just make my own pie shells. My son loved them. Soooo now when I make pies for him they now have to be homemade pie shells 😂. He’s so spoiled.
I went to work Wednesday for 8 hours. Came home took a power nap for 45 minutes and then got up to make the pies and do prep work for the dinner. I was up till 3 a.m. Then got up Thanksgiving morning to complete the dinner. The turkey was actually moist and juicy. All the sides came out delicious. So I would like to share a few photos of my Thanksgiving.
This photo here is the start of the dinner table. I made the place mats and napkins. I needed to set another place mat, for my sons girlfriend. However I wanted to get the photo like this first. In fact if you look closely on the top left you can see the other place mat.
A little background on my brother, when he was younger he was skinny as a rail. He is also a veteran he served in the Gulf war. My brother may get on my nerves and irritate the fire out of me, but I love him. He’s got a heart of gold.
Not too much to really say on this photo, the caption is pretty much all I got.
I’ll admit my opinion of my son is a bit biased. Moving forward this boy and I have been through hell and back. We know we can count on each other because it’s been us against the world. We have an unbreakable bond.
I just wanted to get on here and blog about my experience with Thanksgiving this year. I am already planning next years Thanksgiving 😁 I hope everyone else who celebrates this holiday had a great Thanksgiving as well.
