Hosting our 1st Thanksgiving Dinner Part V: 5 reasons why a Thankful Day was a Great Day...

Yes "we" and not "I" hosted our 1st Thanksgiving Dinner. My husband cut his 1st Turkey and helped out so much. We had 21 family and friends over for a wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner and of course the Football Game too!

1. The Turkey was a hit. My first time cooking a Turkey!I found a great recipe: Bacon Wrapped Turkey with Pear Cider Gravy.

2. I had fun planning everything from the picking out the Turkey Recipe, Appetizers, and Decorations!!!

3. I delegated and did not take on the whole Thanksgiving Dinner. We had a Potluck Thanksgiving Dinner. I just made the Turkey and Appetizers. I started to to make cupcakes too but forgot that the oven was going to be occupied by Mr. Turkey. I am so glad that I did not make them because we had more than enough desserts!!!

4.  I enjoyed every moment  and had fun with the family...many kodak moments!!!

5. I relaxed with the family as we enjoyed each-other and the big Football game!
