Thanksgiving 2015

Thanksgiving this year was at Grandpa’s house. It was a very bittersweet Thanksgiving because my sister-in-law Ammarrette was not there in physical form. It will have been the first major holiday she would not be here for. Every Thanksgiving, she would always make her brothers’ favorite foods, like German chocolate cake and macaroni and cheese. She always would make collard greens for me, she knew they were my favorite. We didn’t have any of those foods this year. 

After we blessed the food, Prentyce asked everyone to say something they were thankful for this year. It was a really nice activity that I think we should do every year. Our brother-in-law Steve, Ammarrette’s husband, cried during this part and it made me cry. I don’t know what I would do if I lost Prentyce. I can’t still imagine what he is going through. They say that the holidays are the hardest for me how lost someone. I bet that is probably true.

We came early to help Joyce and Grandpa prepare for the guests. Prentyce had to read up on how to fry a turkey and that was fun for him learning how to do something new. I think we might have to get a turkey fryer. It cooked the turkey so fast! I also had to learn how to cook yams on the fly. And surprisingly, it actually wasn’t very hard and everybody said they liked it! Yay! I told Prentyce I am still refusing to host Thanksgiving until I get a kitchen with double ovens! Ha!

Anyway, I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! And, I’m sorry this post is so late. I feel like I’m just finally getting my life back together after our honeymoon and the holidays. Better late than never, right?
