:: Thanksgiving 2009 ::

As promised, here is a recap of our Thanksgiving this year. Trevor and I got back from Vancouver late Sunday night from Cranberry Creek . Trev's mom had suggested that my parents join us on the mainland with the baby for dinner with his family but my mom was working and since I was coming back over for my learning session with Jamie Delaine on Tuesday, we decided to come home. Monday was spent doing a lot of nothing.......since it was my mom's birthday that Friday, I decided that as a gift, I would kill two birds with one stone and make a turkey dinner.
Here is the table all set and ready........
Everything went off without a hitch! I made turkey with stuffing, vegetables, gravy and cranberry sauce and my dad made mashed potatoes. I also made a dutch apple pie from scratch and served warm with ice cream of course!
I stuffed myself so full I couldn't believe it.
Yay turkey dinner!
On another note, and I know all you FB fans will already know this, but I would like to invite you to check out my new blog under my new photography name. There isn't a long story as to why I switched names, just got considering the long term and felt really good about using my own name. So come check out Christy Joy Photography. Thanks again for all your support and encouragement!
I'll try and update again for before I leave tomorrow.....Happy Tuesday!

Christy...what a gorgeous table! I can almost smell the turkey! Don't you think there is a direct correlation between a beautiful table and delicious food?

Wow, good for you! I love cooking turkey dinner, but you baked too, you're awesome!! I'm doing Christmas dinner at our house this year, very excited! There is something rewarding about having cooked a meal that has such great traditions connected to it.
