Turkey Day- Guam Style

It was a really nice day.  We had a house full of great people and a table full of delicious food.

On the menu today:

2 fried turkeys, 1 roasted turkey, 2 hams, macaroni and cheese, squash casserole, Spinach Madeline, cornbread dressing, green bean casserole, corn, rolls, greens, (is your mouth watering yet?), cranberry relish, sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes , gravy, pecan pie, pumpkin pie, sweet potato pie, cheesecake (are you drooling yet?).  We forgot to take pictures of the dessert table and the turkeys before we carved them up.  We had more than enough food (a reason in itself to be thankful), which was great because we all love leftovers and everyone who came had plenty of leftovers to choose from.  Anybody out there need a pie?  I have four in my fridge right now!!

The weather cooperated with us, got a break from the rain showers, and we were able to eat outside!

Part of the crowd, on our back porch

Price's 2nd Thanksgiving, but his first Thanksgiving Dinner

Although we didn't go around and say what we were thankful for, if we had I knew what I would have said.  "I'm thankful for unexpected adventures."  How many people get to say they celebrated Thanksgiving outside, on a pleasant day, surrounded by good friends and palm trees?

I am so glad we had people over, it really felt like Thanksgiving.  Now, we have a looonnnnggg weekend to eat leftovers, do some shopping, start getting in the Christmas spirit, and enjoy some good time with two of the people I am most thankful for- Don and Price.

Wonderful and amazing. I'm thankful that my friends who are so far away are finding their place.

Z-Man had his first Thanksgiving this week. The biggest hit: stuffing. He can't wait to tell Mr. P how good the carrot souffle was.

Thanks Matt! We are thankful for that too, and for friends like you :)

I can't wait til the boys get to chat with each other and tell each other all the secrets of the world.

Glad you had a good Turkey Day too!
