Wednesday Thanksgiving

Caitlin's sister Lindsey is going on a mission of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints next week, so all the family gathered together to see her off for Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, we could not afford to fly out after Thanksgiving day, so we ended up flying on Thanksgiving and celebrating a day early. Everything felt like Thanksgiving (except no Black Friday ads for Caitlin to look at).

I was in charge of the yams/sweet potatoes. Caitlin's mom doesn't like them, so she let me cook them for everyone. I'm pretty sure they were a hit, cause there weren't a lot left over.

Caitlin was really excited to make pies this year, so the ladies in the house spent the afternoon baking up a storm. She made an Oreo pie, Amber made an apple, Lindsey made a banana, and Teresa made a chocolate one. DELICIOUS!

Teresa also did an amazing job cooking turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, and many other delightful Thanksgiving foods. It was such a great time to spend with family, and we LOVED being with everyone in San Diego. The worst part was that after we flew home, we had no leftover turkey to eat. :(
