For the past two years, my two best friends and I have been celebrating Friendsgiving. It's always at my place and always a lot of fun. Typically, Mel cooks the turkey and Kerri and I make the apps and desserts.
After two years of hard work turkey making, Mel asked if it'd be ok if we switched things up a bit, and made something simpler...like baked ziti! Kerri and I were all for it. Because really all that matters is that we're together. Kerri and Mel are Girl Scout leaders for Addison's troop and had a meeting on the same day, so Mel couldn't get here at her usual 11 a.m. to start cooking. And to be honest, every year we have so many leftovers! We were due for a change I suppose!!
Oh but the turkey wan't the only major change! Chris, Kerri's husband didn't make it either! He called to request off and was denied. To say both he, and we were disappointed, is an understatement. So an All-Girls Friends giving it was!!
And we still had a great time! We spent the day eating, talking laughing, dancing, hunting for turkeys, playing Turkey Trivia and making some fun crafts. Addie and I baked cookies for dessert but I totally forgot to make the pumpkin dip and we forgot to eat Kerri's Pumpkin Bread...but we still had our fill of Pumpkin with all the beers we drank during the day!! HA!! There were even a few super competitive rounds of Zingo to be had , too! It was a fun day as always! A bit different from our typical Friendsgiving, but more relaxed which was good. After everyone left for the night. I took stock of things. I looked around at all the food, games and things strewn about, poured myself a glass of wine and sat down to make my Grateful List, at the top of which are these girls! And Chris, too of course!!
Some fun photos from our day!
