First of Four Thanksgivings

Tonight was the first of four Thanksgiving meals I will be enjoying. After making a big bowl of stuffing, Ryan and I headed over to our gym for a Thanksgiving meal.

Thanksgiving Meal Numero Uno

The food was fantastic! The sweet potato casserole was by far the best thing goin’! All the brown sugar and pecans made it taste like an indulgent dessert.

For dessert we shared a big plate of cinnamon cake with streusel topping and German chocolate cake. Then we channeled our third stomachs and picked up Sadie to get a pumpkin milkshake from McDonald’s. 🙂 Hey, they won’t be around much longer!
