My babies and their Turkey Day

Happy Post Thanksgiving. I knew from the jump that this Thanksgiving was going to be challenging. I think God for my Family, strength, and health.
I worked my first job on Thanksgiving Eve. After work I still had to go shopping for food, and then make it to my second job. I did not get home until 9:00AM on Thanksgiving day, at that time I had to make the babies breakfast and start cooking. The turkey that I cooked wasn't even a full turkey, it was just a big turkey breast because the grocery store only had FROZEN, I mean completely frozen birds, but they did have these nice size breast that appeared to be good enough to cook.

This year I thought it would be neat to make a dinner menu for the kids, They thought it was the cutest thing. They picked and choose what they wanted to eat and what type of pie they wanted for desert.

The menu consisted of:

  • Turkey

  • Ham

  • Collard Greens/ Kale

  • Macaroni and cheese

  • Sweet Potatoes

  • Wild rice

  • Biscuits

  • Pumpkin Pie

  • Sweet Potato Pie

  • Cherry Cheese Cake

They ate to their little hearts content. After we said grace, they read off a list of what they were thankful for. Those little guys are my world and I thank God for them everyday.

After we ate we went over to my grandmothers house. It was a small gathering, but it is always good to be amongst family. Afterwards, we got home about 9:30 and I went strait to bed I was without sleep for two days (surprisingly, that isn't abnormal). I was extremely thankful that I did not have to go to work that not nor the next morning. Hooray for me!
