Turkey day 2010

Well Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!!! I hope your day went well! 

Let's see, I have my whole family over!  I'll go over the list:
My mom, Step dad, both Sisters and 2 nephews.
Sean's Sister, brother in-law and niece
Room mate and her cousin
Adoptive little brother
Sean's Friend Shawn.
This is plus, Me, Sean and my two kids... a grand total of : 17 peoples here to eat!

We had a crap load of food want to see??:

The pies were in the kitchen, there were 6 of them.

OK, so you wonder how does someone who just had this surgery cook and host a Thanksgiving dinner?  I did it easy.  I got up and cooked.  I knew I couldn't eat 90% of what was being served, so I made sure what I could eat tasted great!  I was in charge of the meat and potatoes!  So we had Rosemary and Thyme turkey with honey/brown sugar ham.  And garlic mashed potatoes. 

I ate about 2oz of turkey and 2 oz of ham.  (not at the same time....)And about 6bites of potatoes.  So I had 3bites with each set of meat.  I had about a good 45min between my "plates" and after2 hours I ate a small scoop of my "pudding pie" Sean made for me.
The pie was no sugar added French vanilla pudding and a graham cracker crust made with splenda.  I was quite happy!
Here is all of us:

One person had already left, so there are only 16 in the picture.

We had a great time and after all the fun I went out black Friday shopping to Toys R Us, Walmart, Target and back to walmart!   I got everything I wanted, stuff for my mom too.  So it was a all and all great Thanks giving!!!

We put up our tree now and start this holiday season!

OK, so just to also update you I'm down 25lbs since the surgery!
