After dinner the kids clean and do the dishes while the adults mingle over drinks. About an hour after dinner, dessert is served!
I had a piece of apple pie, some ice cream, and lots of fruit! There is an amazing bakery in Chicago called Deerfield Bakery that my Aunt buys her pies and coffee cake from. Delish!
The rest of the night is pure family time. This year, we missed my Mom's side of the family :( They couldn't make it.
Hooray for a successful Turkey Day!
Ps---Black Friday was also a major success. My Mom, Shell and I were out and about by 7 AM! We hit up Sports Authority and Gap!
Who's excited for leftovers??
