Family Thanksgiving Scenes // Cottonwood, AZ

November 30, 2015

Waking to an early alarm on Thursday, we tried to dress our best and loaded up in the car. Hopping on the deserted 1-17, we drove up north to spend the day with our family in our home in Cottonwood, AZ. With the laundry bags stuffed in the backseat, we shared stories in the car, caught up on our favorite new songs (hello, JB’s new album. ya killin’ it.) and pulled up to our house earlier than we thought, roughly parking on the rocky carport. Lua’s collar and big wagging tail greeted us at the door as did our mom’s warming hugs. We spent the whole day relaxing on the couch and falling madly in love with our nephew, Rowan. Our brother was sadly feeling under the weather and spent most of the afternoon watching football and falling in and out of sleep with countless Halls berry flavored cough drop wrappers around his pillow. Mom had prepared all of the food the day before which put her at ease, and we prepared the spread of food around 2:00 PM to have a late lunch/early dinner which seems to be a solid routine for the Abbey family. With mashed potatoes, sweet potato mash, acorn squash, green bean casserole, sage roasted turkey, crescent rolls, mini-banana cream pies, and a pumpkin roll our bellies filled up quickly.

Today, as we continue to gobble up our leftovers (the sweet potato mash is all gone as of today…a heartbreaking discovery), we wanted to share a few scenes of our Thanksgiving at home with you all.
