Happy Thanksgiving

We successfully cooked and hosted our very first Thanksgiving as a married couple in our first home. It went off with out a hitch. We had every Holiday dish you could imagine. Ok so many be not everyone, but pretty darn close. From the Turkey, Ham, Rolls, Sweet Potato's, Green Bean Casserole, Corn Casserole, Dressing, Western Bake Beans, Mash Potato's, Cranberry Sauce, Gravy, and Deviled eggs. OMG, it was to die for. I was so proud of myself for managing get everything together and still not need Jared's help. Due to him having staff duty the day before he slept all through the cooking and preparing. I was really bummed at first when I found out he had it, knowing he would sleep most of the day Thursday but it really wasn't to bad. He woke up just as lunch was ready and the table was set. My sweet friends Crystal and Adam along with their daughter Chy. joined us for lunch. It was the best Thanksgiving since I have been married. Seeings the first two I spent with out my husband. So having him here just made the day that more better.






After lunch we cleaned up everything (awh, I was so happy to have my kitchen back in order) and off on the road we went. Over to the Kbay side of the island, I love the drive up and around KoKo head Crater. Its just so pretty.



All in all it was one of the best days we have had in Hawaii so far. I'm looking forward to many more to come.

MMMM...it all looks so wonderful! I'm so glad you had a great first thanksgiving together! Gabe is so lucky to have you (your lucky too) but you do a lot and I admire you for that. You really would make a great house wife someday. :) I love the picture of you by the ocean...nothing beats Hawaii's water!

So G is going to sign with the AF or the Army. He really wanted to do the Marines but they said he was too old, lol. He is going to talk to the AF and the Army on Tuesday. I'm so excited for him. I'm done telling him no, it has been 4.5 years, so I'm pretty sure he wants to do it, lol.
