Thanksgiving #1 :)

...and our first tree!

 It was my first time to put up a tree! So fun!
Brandon's family brought our tree to us and helped us assemble it :)

yay! Our first tree!

I left all of the light stringing to Brandon ;)
I love the way our tree looks lit.

We are having a "Decorate our Tree" party next week so we can actually get some ornaments and have a fun time making them with the fellowship of friends! :) Should be quite fun.
Our dessert spread! Thanksgiving was hosted at our house this year for Brandon's side of the family! what a new experience it was-so quiet and laid back! :) It was wonderful. But I looked forward to the bustle of the next day when we would celebrate with my family. Both were SO fun! :)

Hosting Thanksgiving made me realize that I am missing a few essential kitchen items :) Our turkey barely fit on the plate that I had...I needed a bigger platter :P

After dinner we had a wonderful time of games and music :)

And to end the evening the guys took turns seeing who could press the most weight on the scale.
It broke.

I am so looking forward to next year! :) I just love Thanksgiving!

stay tuned for Thanksgiving #2 at my familys house! :)
