Thanksgiving

One of the downsides of my new job is that I definitely have less time off.  At school this year everyone got a week off.  Me?  Thursday.  I will admit, though, that we got off early on Wednesday and only have to work a half day on black Friday tomorrow.  I didn't get to be with my family - the first time since my mission, I think. The Calls - my relative here in town went out of town for Thanksgiving so I was a little worried about being here by myself.  Luckily, though, (for me anyway) my cousin Shalene and her kiddos were here for Thanksgiving so we planned to have dinner together.
I made this pumpkin pie along with some sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, and stuffing.  Shalene made the turkey, potatoes, and an apple pie.
Here are her cute kiddos enjoying the feast.
We got a pictures with our pies before dessert.  Both were delicious.
Here's our little spread.  I was so stuffed and had to come home for a nap!

I'm glad you guys had each other too. Maybe someday we'll all live close enough that it's easier to be together!
