Thanksgiving 2013

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday! Ours was fantastic! The festivities kicked off on Wednesday morning with our brigades annual Turkey Bowl. It was cold but well worth watching everyone have a good time. Afterwards it was time for Thanksgiving lunch at the dining facility. Every year it is tradition for the command teams to serve the enlisted soldiers, Kyle always has a great time participating.

We had a wonderful time, it was great having lunch with everyone and having a few laughs. Before everyone was released we handed out the Thanksgiving dinner baskets to soldiers that had been nominated by fellow soldiers. Seeing the joy in their eyes was amazing, it reminded all of us what exactly the holiday season is about.

Thursday morning I woke up bright and early to prep everything for dinner. We had our good friends Britt and Shane over and it was awesome! I didn't get a picture of the whole meal but my favorite part was the assortment of mini pies that I made.

Yum! 


We enjoyed lots of good food, games and laughs. Even though we couldn't be with family it was great to spend it with our Army family! 

I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving and have a great weekend!

  4. So jealous of the brigade action - my husband's unit is still partially deployed, so there wasn't much going on on post.
