Here was our menu:
- Organic free range turkey - best turkey we've ever had!
- Sweet potatoes/yams with melted marshmallows
- Traditional stuffing with and without pine nuts
- Pomegranate salad
- J-E-L-L-O layer salad
- Beef tamales
- Cranberry sauce with pomegranates
This will be the year that we will always remember that we forgot the mashed potatoes. Oh well, less carbs and we actually felt better for it. But T Rex thought it was hysterical and kept saying, "We forgot the mashed 'tatoes..."
This was our place setting...
All the food was so delicious, T Rex Princess kept clapping throughout the meal - especially for more sweet potatoes/yams with melted marshmallows! Actually, the clapping is her way of saying "more".
After a sufficient time for food settling, we moved onto T Rex's birthday celebration. This was the birthday table set up for celebrating...
This was the "cake with eyes" requested by T Rex - thank you Auntie JAZ for making this for him and for all your hard work on his birthday preparations.
Happy Birthday Song...
Even Bebe Sister enjoyed present opening...
Later we played some other games like TURKEY Bingo and various word scrambles as well as a turkey toss and a turkey hunt. All very fun. The kids had so much fun. In fact, they slept until almost 8:00 this morning!
We hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
