But in the meantime... Happy Thanksgiving!
Kyle and I were so blessed to be able to host Thanksgiving at our house this year. We wanted to host last year but we moved the week before Thanksgiving, so we told everyone last year that we would host in 2010.
Our guests included Kyle's parents, Sandy's mom and dad (Kyle's grandparents), my parents, Sam and Amy, and a friend of Kyle's.
Kyle and I were about to put the turkey in the oven when my parents arrived. So they helped us rookies get the turkey properly ready---Thank you Mom and Dad!
Just as the turkey went in the oven we discovered a little problem... a plumbing problem that is. Both showers and both toilets were backed up with water. Kyle's dad came over with his 25' plumbing snake and try to fix it; all the while my dad was trying to find the sewer clean out. After a few hours of this it was time to call for help---Roto-Rooter. John, from
Roto-Rooter, showed up a little bit before 3pm just after we made a trip to Kyle's grandparents house for a bathroom excursion. While John and his supervisor Horacio, were finding the blockage and the clean out dinner was coming together nicely. Their magical camera found the blockage----and guess where it was.? Right at the clean out! Thank you Lord for answered prayer! John was able to clear the blockage and make sure our clean out was accessible. We finished dinner right as John was leaving.
And then came dessert! Holy Moly...we had Chocolate Pie, Lemon Pie, Pumpkin Pie, Peach Cobler, Cheesecake (for mom's birthday) and snickerdoodles. From dinner to desert, the food was amazing! Before dessert we sang "Happy Birthday" to my mom and watched her open her gifts.
Kyle and I wanted to keep the Lerman tradition of watching "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation." It was so much fun sitting in our living room with our family all laughing and enjoying the evening together. It really warmed my heart! It was a reminder of just how thankful I am for them.
