I'd have to say that Pre-Thanksgiving is definitely my third favorite holiday of the year...behind of course the real Thanksgiving and Christmas.  This year marked the 8th annual Pre-Thanksgiving and while we had a minor hiccup (originally we were slated to celebrate at Wintergreen but mold and leaking walls got in the way..sorry Dad) we didn't let that get us down and instead we invited our wonderful friends, Chris and Aimee and their son Ryan to the woods for "Pre-Thanksgiving on a stick!" 

Ok, so the only sticks used were those we threw to Liddy, but I think that saying has a nice ring to it. I have to say though, I was very impressed with the feast we were able to put together in the middle of the woods, and while we did have an oven in our camper, it didn't work. So, we had to get creative and found that the smoker was the perfect device for cooking mashed potatoes, stuffing, and of course the turkey! 
It was so great spending time with our friends and Adam and Ryan had fun playing in the woods together.  The fire was the perfect backdrop and we were once again reminded of how thankful we are for our family that isn't blood related. 

Happy Pre-Thanksgiving to all our friends!
