a thanksgiving post in December is a bit odd...but hey, at least I'm updating, right?
This was our version of turkey this year. It was our first Thanksgiving at home by ourselves. What a wonderful day we had together. Mark actually decided to rearrange furniture in just about every room and we took the opportunity to move Levi into his new room.
We played, ate, talked, sang, and enjoyed a new tradition together.
Our meal was at 3:00 and the menu was simple:
Green Bean Casserole
Loaded Baked Sweet Potatoes
Corned Beef and Carrots
Gobble, Gobble, Gobble Bread
Our menu did not include turkey this year for various reasons. As I was preparing to shape the rolls on Wednesday night, the Lord brought a wonderful idea into my mind to shape the dough into a turkey. I shaped it Wednesday night and covered it in the refrigerator all night. I took it out Thursday morning and let it 'grow' all day long. Before I popped it into the oven I let the boys paint it with egg yolk paint, and needless to say, Tom was colorful and enjoyed by all! We will most certainly be including this Gobble, Gobble, Gobble Bread tradition in years to come.
I just love it when the Lord extends creativity to me. What a joy it is to have the Creator of this universe as an intimate friend!
