The day after Thanksgiving, we headed out to get our Christmas Tree. We stopped at the Home Depot because it was close to where we were. They didn't have very many and the ones that were in the affordable section didn't look so good. As we were leaving, I spotted a gorgeous tree in the "costs way too much" section and was admiring it. A worker asked me if that is the tree I wanted. I told her that I would gladly take that tree off of her hands but that it was a bit pricey for us. She said that the tree was ours for the price of the ones we were originally looking at. I couldn't believe it! Not only had our hunt for the Christmas tree only taken about 5 minutes, we got a beautiful tree at a great deal!
Well, it got off to a bumpy start but it ended well. I got up early Thanksgiving morning to get the turkey started because we were hosting the feast. I got the turkey all ready and preheated the oven. Everything seemed fine. I put the turkey in the oven and poof - THE OVEN GOES OUT! The oven decides to break for the first time on Thanksgiving morning when I have guests coming!!! Yikes!!!! After a few minutes of panic, we started calling around looking for a cooked turkey. God provided! My husband got the last cooked turkey at a local restaurant! We later cooked the original turkey at my Mother's house. So we had lots of leftover turkey!! I only took one picture on Thanksgiving due to being busy. I hate that when I forget to document a special occasion. Hope everyone had a wonderful day!
P.S. Just in case you were wondering, my daughter is drinking sparkling grape juice out of that wine glass!
