Phew. After a full round of antibiotics for the team and a very busy yet fun Thanksgiving, I have some time to A. Breathe and B. post pics from Thanksgiving!
This was our 6th year of hosting and probably the least stressful yet. I think PW and I finally have a system that we have honed over the last years that starts weeks ahead of time but means the day of Thanksgiving is actually fun and not so crazy. Also I have slowly been accumulating the things we need for the day of so that I don’t have to raid my mom’s house for table cloths, silverware, serving spoons, plates…the list goes on.
This year PW built me a table that I have always wanted; it’s the same height and length of our outdoor furniture so when you smoosh the two tables together, it makes one large square with enough room to seat up to 20 (more on Peter’s craftsmanship soon…). It was awesome. No more people at one end of a very long table with no one across from them!
Fun paper table runners
The Munchkin table
The outdoor living room
PW’s new coozie collection…don’t ask because I don’t know. At least there was good Montana microbrews to put in them
Peter’s super delicious turkeys. They brine for 12 hours in a special mix he makes and then smoke for 6 hours.
Thanksgiving is exhausting
Mason. Doing a very good impression of his father.
The Wischer Women…and Mason
Everyone at the BIG table!
