On Friday, we had our Thanksgiving feast at the Lee residence! We had all been so excited about it and everytime we talked to Douglas, Sharon, or Zach they were excited as well and told us how much food there was going to be, but nothing could have prepared us for this...
We were greeted with some AMAZING dips and cheeses to start us off. I wish I could have eaten more of that!! There was a spinach dip, a fruit cheese, veggie dip, and the one in the green dish with the crackers around it was my favorite and I can't even remember what it's called.
Then the feast of all feasts. Oh wait...this isn't even everything because Sharon couldn't fit it all on the table.
2 different types of cranberry sauce because she wasn't sure how we liked it. There's the sliced version and the chunky version. In the middle is her homemade chow.
Of course there was TURKEY!!
I am NOT a sweet potato fan, but Sharon's were delicious!!! Her secret?? Dr. Pepper!! I didn't even know that you could get DP here, but you can. She said I should hold out and not drink one from here because they aren't the same and they are super expensive!
Green bean casserole!! YUM YUM
She had thought of everything that we might want.
her homemade dressings!!
pumpkin soup. I didn't get a chance to try this and I'm kind of sad about that, but maybe another time!
a fuzzy picture of the broccoli and cheese casserole!!
Homemade cole slaw that I am now IN LOVE WITH!!!
Homemade dressing with cranberries!! She is sooo creative!!
Our desserts. Sweet potato pie with almonds and since I don't like sweet potatos or nuts she made the banana pudding!!! It was YUMMY!
Sharon did not ask us to bring anything. 1. Because we no longer have a kitchen in the Sheraton and 2. Because she wanted to treat us!! So, Gary went and got her flowers as a "Thank You." Ok Ok I asked him to get the flowers, but he did pick them out all by himself!
The one song I know on the piano. The song from BIG. Jonathan did the assisting.
Then Jonathan took over the piano playing and Firdouz (Douglas and Sharon's grandchild) and I danced!
Jonathan is the other guy from Nashville that is here working for the 6 months.
Of course we had to play the "face game"
Most of the time I make a big fool of myself. HA!!
She had all of her Christmas decorations up too!
We also had story-time!
Firdouz was very intrigued by Gary's beard!
He kept running back to touch it.
It was a great night and we are SOOOO THANKFUL that we were able to have a family invite us to celebrate this great holiday with them!!
