We ate Salvadoran style turkey, one of my favorite dishes to look forward to during the holidays, it brings memories of being home with my mother and sisters, smelling roasted spices and watching my mom pour fresh tomato sauce over the turkey.
(those are the memories I am most thankful for, memories like these I hope, I am giving my children to remember)
We went around the table and each of us talked and shared what we were grateful for. There were tears and laughs, and those special moments that can only happen in a room filled with people you love.
After dinner while we folded tables we danced to merengue and cumbias and sipped champagne and when we were finally tired, furniture was brought back in, leftovers packed up for each to take home and memories stored to remember.
Pumpkin pancakes the next morning, spent the day together as a family, watched movies and ate leftovers.
(refused to do any shopping this weekend)
