We hosted Thanksgiving at our house. We had 13 people here. People from Australia, Germany, Papua and America. (we were the only Americans.
It was my first time hosting Thanksgiving and making the majority of the food. I was a bit nervous since everything had to be made from scratch! It was kinda fun to run around looking for similar foods and substitutes to what I could not find.
It was a huge success! Dinner was delicious! I was up until 3am the night before Thanksgiving cooking, baking, cleaning. I am tired, but my heart is full. As we cleaned we listened to Christmas music! =) Ahhh.
It was HOT AND HUMID today. I think I sweat out water as soon as I drank it. LOL. But gosh darn it we still drank homemade hot apple cider!..because......TRADITION! (I can hear Tevia now!)
I loved this day. =) Enjoy our photos! Happy Thanksgiving America! =) Cant wait to see your pictures! =)
