We had Thanksgiving at our house this year. The past few years we’ve either gone to a friend’s house or traveled to my family. This year looked like it would be quiet and we’d just spend the day with our friend and her family.

Then Anthony’s family started making plans to come to our house. We had 3 from Atlanta and 3 local come Thursday. Then 5 from Raleigh and the 3 local back on Friday. Then my 3 nephews came Friday night through Sunday. That meant I was cooking to have meals to feed 8 to 10 each day for 3 days.

I left Anthony in charge of the meat. He got a ham and a turkey breast plus bison meat for burgers (yum). I made a dressing, sweet potatoes, and slaw. Sister-in-law made a great salad. Plus a few desserts. The food was well taken care of and the teenagers here on Saturday finished up our leftovers.

The holiday was a great success for visiting with family too. We got to see some relatives that we haven’t seen in years. We had all 4 Navarro siblings together. I got to see Anthony’s 3 nephews who have grown quite a bit since the last time we got together. And we set plans for Christmas visiting too.

Saturday we even got the Christmas tree up while I had teenage boys to carry boxes down and up the stairs and a 6 year old to help put the ornaments on the tree. All told, a very fun weekend.
