November 18th was the day our house finally became ours to occupy. We had our walkthrough the day before and immediately got to work. The house didn't need that much. Just painting and little things here and there. Our ultimate goal was to have everything done in order to host Thanksgiving dinner and we did it! We were able to start sleeping at our new house on the 27th, and the following day, we had Thanksgiving!
Our tradition: Fried turkey from KFC
We made some of the traditional dishes and our family members brought others.
The best part was that my sister and brother-in-law drove up with this little lady and stayed with us for the weekend. It really broke in our house and made it feel like a home.
