Thanksgiving and Christmas Prep

We have had a really great Thanksgiving holiday. We spent the day at home and had Thanksgiving on our own for the first time. I went all out with our dinner. I brined the turkey for 20 hours and it turned out fabulous! It was a delicious spread and we were all very full and happy.
After dinner we had pumpkin pie with whipped cream.
After some time to digest we decided it was time for more sugar and made gingerbread cookie ornaments.
We used chocolate chips and marshmallows to decorate our cookies.
The tree is going up tomorrow and I am sure it is going to be gorgeous!
We had a wonderful day together as a family. It was chilly outside, but warm in our little apartment. We are very blessed.
