It was my first time cooking a turkey and I think it was still frozen when I put it in. Finally after 5 hours in the oven with the bottom half still raw, we decided to just eat what was cooked and forget about the rest. It looked really good, and wasn't too dry considering how long it was in the oven.
We feasted on all the traditionals, sweet potatoes, creamed corn, mashed potatoes, rolls, carrots, corn bread stuffing, and pumpkin pie!
Waiting for the turkey gave us some time to make Thanksgiving hats.
Of course, it would not be Thanksgiving without the Thanksgiving Pudding. This is a tradition in my family that represents the beginning of the giving season. There are presents for each person in a basket with a long string attached to each, everyone pulls there sting at once and you have to untangled all the strings to get your present. James was so tried from all the excitement of the day, he was already in bed and missed the Thanksgiving Pudding.
We spent the rest of the weekend decorating for Christmas, making donuts and visiting the Christmas display in Frisco. The city of Frisco had created a light display downtown that was synchronized to Christmas music.
I had more pictures, but blogger just said I have exceeded my picture capacity. So you will just have to wait until I figure this out.
