Spanksgiving '13

This past weekend we co-hosted one of our favorite annual events - Spanksgiving! This year we had about 11 guests come over to Kerry's new house to eat, drink and be merry. Here's a breakdown of our day -

We started out by running some errands. Trader Joe's, Nobbies, an unexpected trip to Joann's Fabric and finally Costco - it was a busy morning picking up some last minute details. While we were at Nobbie's we wondered over to the costume section where we came across this strange mannequin. I'm not sure why it was all wrapped in blue like this, it was like something out of a Dario Argento movie...creeeeepy. 

Then it was party time. We finished making floral crowns for our female guests and made our punch and set the table. Kerry donned her R. Kelly apron as we finished the side dishes we were contributing to the night. 

Our guests began to arrive and so did the massive turkey. We hung out for a bit over drinks and dips  before we gorged ourselves on an amazing meal including home-grown vegetables, mashed potatoes, roasted vegetables, macaroni and cheese, stuffing, green bean casserole and homemade rolls. Everything was so delicious!

After dinner our friend Becky, who is an amazing chocolatier, made us all hot chocolate which was thick, rich and provided the perfect end to our meal. Later on, we played Cards Again Humanity and worked off some of those calories with laughter. All in all it was a pretty successful evening and while I wish I would have taken maybe a few more photos of everyone in attendance, I'm glad I sat back and really enjoyed the event! Here's hoping you al have a fantastic Thanksgiving!

PS - Aren't are friends the cutest?
