Thanksgiving Dinner 2013 --- Mom's first try at turkey!

This was our first Thanksgiving dinner on our own - no parents to cook for us.  Time to figure out our own traditions and what we like

Haven started the morning off with Deviled Eggs

Then came the roasting of the bird!  We filled it with lemons, oranges, onions, garlic, parsley, sage, and thyme leaves.  Then rubbed our garlic butter mix all over him!  

He came out BEAUTIFUL!  We checked his temp and he was ready to eat at exactly 4:45pm!  :)  mmmmmm mmmmmmm

Haven also researched a good cranberry sauce that we all might actually eat.  We bought some fresh cranberries - cooked them until they popped and then added all the goodies.

At the end you add blueberries --- OH IT WAS YUMMY.  I've never eaten cranberry sauce and this was amazing!  Great job Haven.

After dinner we started the decorating of the windows.

Rohnin is always a huge help with the decorating.

Finishing windows to move on to the doors.

How high can we get the stickers so Weston doesn't destroy them?

Everything gets moved up the next morning!

Taken by my Haven.  She put this Nativity scene together with the window stick ons.
