However, I decided that for my first Thanksgiving away from my family, I wanted to spend it alone. It's always a different change and I was unsure at how emotional I'd be. To tell you the truth, it wasn't bad, except for the time when dad sent me a cell phone picture of my family's Thanksgiving table. Thanks for rubbing it in, Dad! I got a group phone call from my mom and Aunt Heide, so that was fun, plus a picture text message from the boys I babysit back in Washington (and their new baby brother, who's HUGE!), and lots of text messages from good friends back at home who wanted to let me know they were thinking about me. I'm pretty lucky to have the friends I have! Anyway, here is some pictures of mine and Chloe's Thanksgiving! Enjoy!
Me, reppin' the Hawks even though they lost miserably.
My Thanksgiving dinner!
A close up of my amaaazing green been casserole (my favorite!), and my tomato and mozzarella tarts (the appetizer)
My "main dish," some ham (that was darn good, good call there) and a baked potato, along with my two other side dishes, some left over mac and cheese and stuffing (don't worry, I still have leftovers!). Plus, a California Zinfandel 'cuz it reminds me of my mama.
Lastly, for dessert, a yummie piece of pie that I baked last night! Yaaay Sar!
