Thanksgiving 2010

We hosted Thanksgiving at our home this year. I had been excited for quite some time to make Thanksgiving dinner in my big new kitchen. Thank goodness for the Konold family who gave me a step by step of turkey cooking. I made a brine (my first one ever) and soaked the turkey in it over night. I followed Byron's instructions meticulously
and a wonderfully moist and tender turkey was the end result. You could cut your turkey with your knife. This is really my first ever cooking success. The Konold's even gave me the turkey booties to complete it!
I made turkey hand print napkins with the kids. I loved how they turned out.
Our table we bought just for Thanksgiving it fit everyone perfectly.
Gavin still likes a drink of milk on his Grandma's lap.
I gave Luke his first bottle of cow's milk too, well Grandpa did.
Hannah helping Marilyn with the relishes. She is such a good little helper. I like the perfectionist side that it coming out of her. She is a pretty crafty little one.
Look at me cooking the gravy! Check me out mom!
Taking a break from all the cooking...
It is hard to move a 325 degree 23 pound turkey...
Marlon's daughter, Allison, joined us for Thanksgiving. My kids loved her and her dog, Sunny.
Kevin carved the turkey...
We had a lot of pies.
It was a nice Thanksgiving. I didn't realize how much work it was to make all that food! I feel like a real mom now that I've made a Thanksgiving dinner.
