I just hosted my first successful Thanksgiving dinner. I made a turkey, gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, and cranberry sauce all from scratch. I know many of you do this every year, but I am quite pleased with myself, and I must say, I think my dad would be proud.

Also, the pictures loaded backwards. So travel back in time with me, through el Thanksgiving de Fletcher.

Erin came over to help me get ready. She's an excellent candle lighter/dish washer/store-runner.

  1. you did such a good job. the turkey came out PERFECT and it was your first try! everyone, here on earth and otherwise, is proud.

  2. good for you! i'm impressed. never even attempted it myself!

  3. Wow...Erin's hair looks amazing in that candle lighting photo.

    Congrats on the mom overcooks ours every year, so I'm pretty sure I'll do the same when it's my turn.
