Great Thanksgiving Day!
We had five sailors at the table, and what a awesome bunch of guys! Cristian (USS Kearsarge), Mark, Jonathan (USS Eisenhower), Austin (USS Eisenhower), Jedd (USS Truman).
Austin made "Angeled" Eggs for us (Yum!). Jonathan and Cristian made guacamole and salsa for appetizers. Yup! Yvonne made everything else...except the gravy. That's always my job!
Before we ate we started watching the Detroit-Chicago game. Than Yvonne called us to the table and we missed most of the scoring that Detroit did against Chicago. But I think the food was worth it!
Each of us had five kernels of corn on our plates and Yvonne informed us all that we had to share five things we were thankful for. I didn't realize the kernels were on my plate until I ran into them while I was eating. I only found three of them though....hmmm.
After we ate our fill we went back to the game and watched Detroit annihilate Chicago!
While Yvonne made dessert, 2 delicious pumpkin pies (from real pumpkin) we watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade, and then went on to the big game of the day the Philadelphia Eagles verses the Dallas Cowboys. Wow did the Eagles mop up on the Cowboys! We watched Tony Romo get more and more frustrated as the game went on. And as he did he got worse and worse in his throws! The Eagles dominated the whole game from beginning to end!
Oh, by the way, did I forget to say, we ate pumpkin pie and whipped cream as we watched the Cowboys go down? Yup!
Most everybody that knows me knows I'm not a big football fan, I only watch football three times a year: Thanksgiving Day, New Years Day, and the Superbowl! This was number one of three and both games were fun to watch!
What a great day! Thank you Jesus! Pictures to follow.
