Thanksgiving 2018

Happy Thanksgiving!!! It was a really nice day.

We started with a little Thanksgiving morning breakfast/surprise. I got Karl a box of “Thanksgiving Cereal.” The story goes that the Hite family didn’t get a lot of sugared cereal growing up, and when they did it was for special occasions like birthdays and holiday breakfasts. Apparently when Karl was a little kid,  they had Golden Crisps (Or Smacks) for one Thanksgiving breakfast, and MONTHS later he asked his mom for “Thanksgiving Cereal.” So the Hite family calls this cereal thanksgiving cereal. So I bought him a box. So he could have it on Thanksgiving. Is that clear? 😉

We had little smokies, which is basically a holiday breakfast tradition that came from my side of the family. We learned how to make them from sister Johnson in seminary. The Branny really was the one who started to make them at home.

All in all a pretty great meal, and a nice low key Thanksgiving.
