Our First Thanksgiving

This year we decided to spend our first Thanksgiving together as a married couple in Birmingham. Our niece was born last week, so we used last weekend for our vacation time. I (Brooke) had to work at Brookwood on Thanksgiving, but at least I got time and a half! We decided to celebrate today (Friday) instead :) The picture above is my first attempt at cooking a turkey on my own so I wanted to document it with a picture. It actually turned out really yummy! I made stuffing, rolls, mashed potatoes (from scratch), gravy (from scratch), and green bean casserole.

The only thing that would have made it better would have been being with family, but maybe next year! We can't wait to see everyone for Christmas. I guess that means we need to put up our decorations this weekend. Man, this year is flying by! Hope you all have a wonderful night!
