142.4…Thanksgiving Part One

They came.

They ate.

I conquered.

The past several days has been a eating, traveling and clean up whirlwind. Thanksgiving was a huge success!  I hope everyone had a great one! My kitchen has never seen so much cooking in one day! I’m going to do my best to get you caught up in the next several posts.

Thursday we drove to Los Angeles to have Thanksgiving dinner at my brother’s house. Since we were doing Thanksgiving on Friday this year, they decided to host on Thursday. Thanksgiving twice? Yes please!
