Well, Thanksgiving ended up being quite the success. It was great having J here and we're already looking forward to our next visit. And of course it was amazing having HB home this year and not leaving a few days later (Thanksgiving was at the end of his R&R last year). Definitely a very thankful year.
Something else I'm thankful for; my first attempt at a Turkey and all of Thanksgiving dinner. I can say I pretty much did it all, with a little onion dicing help from the HB and some garlic mincing assistance from J. Lil Gbear even helped smashed some pretzels for the pretzel chocolate pie. Our leftovers have been disappearing quite quickly.

After we thoroughly stuffed ourselves, J and I enjoyed some delicious cocktails and we all sat around and watched Christmas movies. J was great and took some family photos for us too, so I finally ordered our Christmas cards. I can't wait to see them!
Tomorrow it's back to work for HB and cleaning the house for me- and getting the house ready for Christmas. I'm not going to go all out this year because we're going away for Christmas, but I love Christmas the most of any holiday, so I can't help but have a little Christmas cheer :)
Hope you all had lovely holidays, I'll be catching up on all your blogs as soon as I can, but for now, I'm going to enjoy a cup of cocoa and some qt with the hubby
