Traditions

So, for the Smith family Christmas it's pretty much a tradition for Grandma to make the turkey. Feeling a little ambitious while we were discussing what each would bring, I volunteered to attempt the turkey. I LOVE to cook, I really do, and have always wanted to try a turkey. So yesterday between a much needed massage and an afternoon of work, I put the turkey in the oven and hoped for the best. If you know me, I mean really know me, you know that I would of course try to stuff the bird too...and that's just what I did. I think I was a little over excited about the results, but hey, it was my first! Here's a few pics from my phone.My cousin's husband, helping me cut up onions for the stuffing. He broke out the face sheild because his eyes wouldn't quit watering. My golden bird right out of the oven, and the turkey and stuffing ready to serve!

Hope you all are having a beautiful Christmas season, and are enjoying some turkey and traditions yourselves!
