Best of all, it was our first time together as a family since we've been in Oklahoma. And it was the first time we've seen Aunt Rita or brother Dan since Mom was in the hospital around this time last year. It was also the first time I met uncle Bob, even though J and I have been together for 7 years. Mom wasn't feeling great so the party ended around 3:30 p.m. but we hung out until about 6:00 p.m. and were home, back in Tulsa, by 8:30 p.m. Thanksgiving in Arkansas...it was good.
Today we celebrated Thanksgiving in Greenwood, Arkansas at the home of J's aunt and uncle. We were joined by his cousins, mom and pop and brother. It was a nice gathering complete with all of the standard fare...roasted turkey, glazed ham, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, sage stuffing, sweet potato souffle, mashed potatos and gravy, followed by our choice of pecan or pumpkin pie, carrot cake, banana bread, brownies or fudge. It was all super tasty.
