Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving
We will have a house full today! There will be 9 adults and 7 children at my house. We have invited our friends and neighbors over. This is the 3rd year in a row we have held Thanksgiving Dinner at our house. We deep fry the turkey (so good, its the only way I will eat turkey) and I give an ingredient list to everyone thats coming. Everyone brings there ingredients over and we all cook together! Its always a lot of fun. I make sure everyone helps in the cooking even all the men! Hubby is always in charge of the Turkey and he does a wonderful job! I am baking 3 pumpkin pies right now!
Being in the military, we are always far away from our family and don't always get to go home for holidays, especially this one. Hubby loves Thanksgiving! Three years ago we decided to start the tradition of inviting over all our friends who were also away from their families, especially the single Marines who are all alone.
So today we gather together with our "Military Family" and I am thankful that I have found friends like them.
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Mrs. Marine
