Thanksgiving 2013

While this Thanksgiving was very different from any other Thanksgiving Ryan and I have ever had together, it was amazing nonetheless and filled with great company and great food. Rachel and her family were gracious enough to include us in their festivities, so we headed to their house around 3 in the afternoon. After greeting everyone we posed for a few pictures in front of the fireplace with Kathy's gorgeous Thanksgiving decorations. 

So thankful for these three! 
Shortly after that, it was time to dig into our feast, featuring a big ole Turkey (of course), mashed potatoes, peas, gravy, stuffing, squash, and this sweet potato casserole, made by me!

The rest of the night was spent eating large amounts of food and spending quality time with the Grant family, both talking and watching football.

I made Aunt Carol's pecan pie for dessert and it was a hit, thankfully! Among the rest of the desserts, there was an apple pie, a pumpkin roll, a trifle, and a bunch of other really delicious things! We definitely weren't hurting for food that night.

Ryan and I have so much to be thankful for during this first year of our marriage. On top of our family and friends in Georgia, we are so thankful for this move to Boston during this time in our lives, all of the amazing things we've been able to do while up here, and most importantly, the great friendships and "northern family" we've established so far. Thanks Grant family for including us in your family holiday plans!
