Thanksgivings Past

Today, Facebook did one of those "memories" things that they do, reminding you of a post of yours from years past (I love that they do that, by the way) and it blew my mind that the post was five years old. It was FIVE years ago that we were at my sister's for Thanksgiving? Have we really been out of California for three years now? Three?! Man, time flies. I know this makes me sound old, I'm okay with it.

So, on that note (sort of), I thought it'd be fun to look at some Thanksgivings past because you know I've got 800 photos them somewhere.

2007!! Our first Thanksgiving together. We were living in Chico and decided to stay and celebrate alone. And promptly got hammered on a bottle of wine and went to bed early. We look like we're twelve here.

2009! We drove to Santa Rosa and had Thanksgiving at the Way's house. Bradley helped me decorate that pie and it was delicious.

2010! We drove to Laura's and had a tasty dinner and an eventful wine tasting experience. Gizmo also yacked ALL over my mom on the car ride. I blogged about it here.

2011! We combined families and had a delicious, non-traditional meal. We ran in the turkey trot which was my first 5k ever. We took epic, random photos on the lawn including the shoving match shown above (my favorite photo ever). Gizmo and Winston played for DAYS.

2012! I didn't take any photos. We were getting ready to move away the day after Thanksgiving to Maryland and I don't remember anything about it except we were totally dream crushing our family and stressing about our move. I'm sure it was lovely though...

2013! Our first Thanksgiving on the East Coast. We celebrated with a trip to my Dad's where Mike and Monica baked up a storm and then we spent the night at an awesome B&B and had a super tasty dinner. (Don't eat the foam). I blogged about it here.

2014! We literally can't remember what we did. I'm sure Monica cooked. We have no idea.

2015! Our first Thanksgiving in Denver, we decided to celebrate alone with a giant meal, lots of boozing, lots of reading, and just being giant lazy bags. It was awesome. Mike made a Southern feast, we watched Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, and it snowed the whole day.
