Thanksgiving this year was a different affair than we were expecting, but lots of fun and so laid back! Gail decided to stay in Ohio for Thanksgiving this year, so we were invited to Nashville to be with Kira and Andrew and his family. We committed to attending kinda late, so most of the dishes had been split up between all of the different women, but I feel like I got to make awesome things none the less.
Kelly and her husband Eric live in Nashville and they signed up to do a turkey which they were smoking. Kira was making the mashed potatoes, gravy, a glazed ham, asparagus, and the sweet potato casserole. Sarah whose husband and kids were also at Kira’s made the stuffing and green beans. I made the pies, bought ice cream to go along with it, made cranberry fluff, and brought spiced cider. Jolene and Wayne were getting as much grandkid time as they could squeeze in.
Grant and I left around 8am in the morning from Huntsville, since we were only going to be in Nashville for a day trip since there were already so many people at Kira and Andrew’s House, and we were too lazy to pack our stuff.
We had such a great time at their house, everything was so tasty and because it was all planned so well in advanced it was very low stress.
Around 9pm we headed back to Huntsville, and made it back in time to see all of the Black Friday shoppers already in lines at Target and other stores. We didn’t participate at all, and both relaxed since we had Friday off.
Thanks Kira and Andrew for the wonderful time, and I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
