Thanksgiving Recap

Well this post is a little late, but better late than never!  For Thanksgiving this year, Tom and I went over to his parents house to eat a late lunch.  His mom and I were in charge of all the sides {my favorite part of the meal} and Tom, his brother, and dad were in charge of the turkeys {Tom's favorite part of the meal}.   Later that day, I was able to FaceTime with my family back in North Carolina.  I tell you what, not spending holidays with my family doesn't get any easier, but it is nice to be able to "see" their faces on those special days!

One of my absolute favorite side dishes for holidays is green rice.  It has been a staple in my family for as long as I can remember and it is SO GOOD!  You can find the recipe {here}.

I also made an apple pie, but completely forgot to take a picture of it!

Before we ate our Thanksgiving meal, Tom, Elli, and I went to the field near his parents' house to take some pictures for our Christmas card.  We always manage to convince his brother to take them for us!  We started out taking them with my big girl camera, but it was so slow at snapping the shots, we ended up just using my iPhone.

Here are just a few of my favorites:

Later that night, we ran to Target to check out the Black Friday deals.  We weren't looking for anything too crazy; really all I wanted was the most recent season of Modern Family on DVD for a good price.  I found that and we picked up his parents a Bluray player that was marked down for a great price!  Well with the way they wind you through the aisles to check out, I ended up finding tons of other essentials that I needed...after I took this picture I ended up grabbing a tube of chapstick.  Man, we are crazy Black Friday shoppers here!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
