"Thanksmas"


This year I decided that I wanted to add a new Holiday to the calender, and I called it Thanksmas. Thanksmas is the holiday held on the second Sunday of December between Thanksgiving and Christmas. The purpose of this holiday is to get together with family and friends, have an amazing dinner, play games, and go around the circle and have everyone tell one thing that they are grateful for and one thing that they want for Christmas. This is exactly what we did, and we had so much fun! I am not going to lie I felt so domestic because I cooked a turkey, which I have never done before, I made sweet potatoes, stuffing, rolls, and the list just goes on and on! haha Granny did give me some pointers :) I thought I was the bomb.com! Preparing the turkey was probably one of the most disgusting things that I have ever done... taking all the insides out and washing it made me kinda not want to eat it,but of course after it was cooked perfectly I did enjoy it :) I am so glad that I got to spend Sunday with 15 of my closest friends. What are you grateful for? And what do you want for Christmas?

We had so much fun at your Thankmas Party. We are thankful for the fact that we were invited to the party, and for Christmas we want nothing more than to be with all the fam in St. George. I CANNOT wait!

Okay, now you have become domesticated will you start your own cooking show? Sounds like you did a great job. Congratulations.
