Our kitty, Socrates, was helping to set the table!
We also had our friend bring her plates, silverware and wine glasses. Altogether it looked very festive!
We set up drinks and appetizers on the breakfast bar.
The turkey's done!
It actually was done way too early, but thankfully it didn't dry out or anything and tasted perfect.
After dinner, we served some yummy alcohol infused chocolates with dessert. They were from Sam's Club and were a hit! Everyone loved it!
One of our friends made gingerbread cookies for us all to decorate. It was such a great after dessert activity!
At the end of the night, we just collapsed on the couch and felt so grateful for friends to help make being away for the holidays a bit more like home. It was a wonderful, satisfying feeling to have successfully hosted such a wonderful event in our new home.
