One of the things I’ve learned to compromise are the holidays.
The way my family celebrates anything is big and loud. It’s take a big adjustment to have holidays with the hubs family. They’re very low key and the fact that their isn’t any other young parents in his family around make it a little hard to connect with.
One thing we both have in common are the delicious foods.
While our family joined in for prayer and the feast, I looked around and saw turkey, ham, greens, mac and cheese, yams, deviled eggs, green beans, and cake!!!
Later, we skyped with family back home who had gotten together like every year. We were lucky enough to have held Thanksgiving the year before we moved. I knew it would be loud and there would be laughs and tears.
They shared how had Nana’s traditional Turkey Birria(which i’m still trying to get the recipe for), Deep Fried Turkey, Baked Turkey, Ham, Chiles Rellenos, greens, mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, and stuffing(My aunt has a way of making it with rice Delicious!!!) and lots and lots of PIES!!!
As you can imagine by all the food it really is a party when my family gets together. Though I miss my family greatly I know that my hubs family loves me as their own.
Hope your Holiday was amazing.
I wish I could have shown you pictures of all the yummy food but we didn’t take any.
I’ll leave you all with this picture of Little man and Little lady awaiting to Skype with the family. Unfortunately little lady feel asleep right before they called I’m guessing the turkey got to her!
