We wanted to go to Rockford, IL for Thanksgiving but things didn't work out for that this year. I knew he was disappointed, so I was determined to make sure he had a good, Southern style Thanksgiving. His one request was pumpkin pie...the kind that his Grandma used to make...the kind that only Cheryl (his sister) could make. I asked Cheryl for the recipe, and she sent it me. I printed off the recipe...and y'all..ohmiword....the pie crust DID NOT have butter in it! In the South we put butter in EVERYTHING, and I've never made a pie crust without butter. I joked with Jon that he was going to get his Yankee pumpkin pie because there wasn't butter in the pie crust. (He thought that was funny). I made it...and he said it tasted just like his Grandma's and Cheryl's pumpkin pie. Thanks Cheryl! His family always goes to a movie on Thanksgiving, so we kept that tradition going. We went to see Frozen and it's the cutest movie ever! I'm a big Disney fan!
We don't have a lot of room, so we got a small tree. I thought it was so little, but it's actually as tall as me!
We've been collecting ornaments from the different places we have visited since we got engaged. It was fun talking about the memories we had with each ornament.
