Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Ben and I are super lucky because this year we get to have Thanksgiving twice. DOUBLE THANKSGIVING!!! Since Vana is working today, we're celebrating with Ben's family tomorrow night. We gathered at Mer, Pete and Kate's house tonight for a delicious feast.

We started off with some appetizers. Veggies! Look at those gorgeous watermelon radishes!!

I made sugared cranberries, inspired by Nancy! I love these. I must have eaten 3,000 of them in the past two days.

Using the simple syrup that I soaked the sugared cranberries in, Mom and I made a big batch of cranberry-orange mojitos!

These also featured the syrup I strained from my orange cranberry sauce. Most delicious holiday cocktail ever!


Dad is pointing at something.

Army of pies!

Prosecco. Cheers!

Look at that big, glorious turkey from King Family Farm!

Carve master!

Gravy master!

Craig and Moss arranged the rolls on the tray.

Uncle Mark had a monkey in his drink!

Check out Ben and Cheryl's coordinating outfits!



Since Craig was tardy to the table, we only allowed him to have a tiny bite of dinner.

Time to make whipped cream!

Kate supervised.

Kate thought she didn't like whipped cream, but she was wrong!

While we were getting the pies ready, the Miller boys were geeking out in the living room.

To aid with our digestion and make more room for pie, we all did a shot of Underberg.



Pies! We had pumpkin, apple, and chocolate buttermilk.

Ed was doing his fancy pose.

Look at his fancy paws!

Full from pie, time for some more geeking.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Can't wait to do it all again tomorrow night!
