This year spent Thanksgiving with our friends the Gjertsens!
Growing up as a vegetarian, a meal centered around meat never made Thanksgiving to be one of my favorite holidays.. by any stretch. But I do enjoy spending time with friends and eating yummy foods. This Thanksgiving was probably my favorite yet! The company and the food! I made rolls, mashed potatoes, sweet potato stacks, and green bean casserole. The Gjertsens prepared the turkey, stuffing, gravy, and dessert. 8 years of marriage and I am yet to make a turkey... How long do you think I can hold out?
To give the kiddos something to do while we waited for the food, I brought the fixings to make apple turkeys! We used marshmallows, green and red grapes, blueberries, and cheese cubes. I was trying to keep the sugar factor down....
However, Claire only used marshmallows :)
She also kept calling hers a parrot. Haha!
I swiped this picture from the Gjertsen's blog :)
If you haven't checked out their blog yet you really should. We have been watching them grow as they are in the midst of unique adoption journey. Their testimony through this trying time has been an example and a challenge to Brian and I. We are so thankful that God brought us back to NC and put these amazing people in our lives!
