For Thanksgiving this year, Daniel and I hosted at our apartment. My parents and my oldest sister & her two boys were there, as well as Daniel's mother & her husband.
On Wednesday we did a lot of preparation so we'd have more time to enjoy Thanksgiving day. It all worked out so nicely.
We made all our pies on Wednesday. I made apple and Daniel made pumpkin. We had some extra pumpkin filling, so we made little tiny pumpkin pies too. The apple pie was delicious!! I will have to make one every year for Thanksgiving, it was my favorite thing making (and eating) this year. Yum!! I'm not a fan of pumpkin pie, but Daniel enjoyed it and so did everyone else.
In between making things and getting stuff ready, I was watching the parade. As it turns out, I had it on the wrong channel all morning. I kept waiting for Matt Lauer & Al Roker to come on, but they never did. I had it on CBS instead of NBC. Horrible!!

It was a lot of fun making everything and serving it all, but I don't know if we'll host again in our apartment. The next time we host will be in our actual house, once we're in it. Looking forward to that one day.
