Our first Thanksgiving as a family of 3 was a success! We nervously watched the weather all week and what started out as rain changed to scattered showers which all scattered in the morning thankfully and we had sunny, although somewhat cool weather for our celebration. This was great news because it was going to be a tight squeeze trying to fit everyone inside.
As always, the manicotti was the star of the show. I hear rumors that Chris's family doesn't make this anymore for their Thanksgiving feast - I don't think that Chris will ever let that happen while we're hosting (and our friends might stop showing up).
The evening was capped off with a beautiful sunset as everyone found a bit more space for one more bite of dessert, or perhaps a drink of Chris's home brew IPA on tap. All in all it was a great day and we have a lot to be thankful for. Can't wait for next year when Felix will get to eat Thanksgiving food!
