Our First Thanksgiving

Fried Turkey

This year was our first Thanksgiving together as a married couple. And it turned out to be a pretty big event. The meal was eaten at my parents house and we needed two whole tables to fit everyone. We had lots family over and even some of Emily’s (my sister) college friends over for the big meal.

Along with this being Kierra’s first Thanksgiving with my family it was also my Uncle’s wife and two daughters first Thanksgiving ever. We had a great time getting together and enjoying one another’s fellowship. For the meal we had three different turkeys –smoked, fried and traditionally oven cooked turkey. As well as all the mashed potatoes, stuffing, and veggies we could eat. After the meal we all got together and played phase ten and Nintendo Wii all while eating home made apple and pumpkin pie. The festivities lasted late into the evening.

An Early Thanksgiving

Kierra and I celebrated an early Thanksgiving with Lew and Kaelah at their house in Atlanta. It was a lot of fun, and afterward we went downtown to Macey’s to ride the “Pink Pig.”
