Since I only get one day off work for Thanksgiving, driving the three hours home to celebrate wasn’t in the cards this year. So as usual, Zandi Watts came to the rescue and invited me to spend Thanksgiving with her family.
The first tradition I was introduced to with Zandi’s family was the washing of the turkey. I arrived in the evening to a house full of Zandi look-a-likes, yummy food and a turkey that needed washing and stuffing. If you are interested in seeing the video of me washing the turkey, check it out here. It was an interesting feeling I must say and of course Zandi’s brother Josh made it even more memorable.
On Thanksgiving day, I woke up to go see the beautiful Zandi plays drums in the parade in Charlotte. She did an amazing job as usual…and she looked like she loved every minute of it.
And then this happened with the turkey. It’s a nice family photo don’t you think?
Another family tradition is taking pictures with the turkey. Isn’t Zandi’s family the cutest?
After stuffing our faces with that turkey….we did another part of that Thanksgiving tradition: a photo shoot.
Here’s a piece of advice for all of you girly girls: It always pays to have a best friend who is a photographer.
And I’m pretty good at taking pictures of her too 🙂
Then Zandi’s sister-in-law Keri Watts got in on the action and we had a great time.
I’m so thankful for my best friend Zandi Watts who let me spend Thanksgiving with her family. I’m so glad that I have you in my life.
