Thanksgiving 2013

This year we traveled 2 hours north to visit Andrew's aunts and uncles on his mom's side for Thanksgiving. After making an entire dinner by myself last year it was nice not having to cook much. I did make a gluten-free pumpkin pie. So Andrew would have something sweet to eat. I cheated and bought a tub of pie dough in the freezer section at Publix. But I made the filling myself! And it was the best pumpkin pie I've ever tasted if I do say so myself. Make one yourself if you want to impress your relatives or coworkers at your next Christmas party. Andrew ate almost the entire pie himself over the course of a couple of days so I'm calling it a win.

Uncle Donnie made all of the food at his house and carted it all over to the very large kitchen at the thrift store where we all got together. He recently remodeled the entire kitchen, built bathrooms and redid all of the wiring at the store so we were allowed free reign to have our family get together there. It was seriously the greatest place to hang out. After dinner the kids went out into the store area and played with all the toys sitting on the shelves. Reuben headed straight for the cars and trucks and Lily found some clothes to play dress up in.

After dinner, playtime for the kids and some good conversation time for the adults, we took a drive to visit Andrew's grandmother at the assisted living facility where she resides. Lily still talks about how "nice" her great-grandma is and how she gave Lily a little American flag. It will probably be one of the things she treasures forever.
