Thanksgiving 2013

We got to spend an amazing Thanksgiving with my family down in the Houston area. It was filled with good quality time, great food, and some fun dog walking! 
They were very excited to go for the walk!
Alice and my brother's huge aquarium
Walking around the Woodlands
Waterway Thursday afternoon.

We 'cheated' a little with Thanksgiving dinner and ordered a roasted turkey breast from a local BBQ place and oh my goodness was it the tastiest thing ever! So tender, moist, and delicious! There wasn't much of it leftover and it was all gone by that night, that's how good it was.

The amazing turkey breast. 
All of the delicious food: Turkey breast, roasted turkey legs, green bean
casserole, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, & fruit salad. Yum!
My plate :)
The most important picture of the pies! Pumpkin pie on the right
and bumbleberry pie on the left (a mix of different berries)
My mom had us set up the house for Christmas and I'm glad we all got to decorate the tree together. It was so fun watching my niece put the ornaments on the tree :)

Got to get the tree set up!
My brother and his precious daughter
My mom and I set up the mantel the next day. Ignore the 1 stocking
pointing in the wrong direction. My OCD is...
And now it's back to school. Only 3 final papers to submit and a lot of grading and then Christmas break! Hope your Thanksgiving was a good one and here's to a great December!


  1. Looks delicious! We had no turkey and fixins - but I had a wonderful bowl of shrimp bisque that tasted like lobster newburg, as well as liquid refreshments, of course. Wish we could've had the whole family in Key West.... Paula

  2. BTW that's sparkling grape juice that John is pouring into a kids' cup....
