My family and I took Freedom on a trip to my grandparent’s house for a traditional Thanksgiving celebration. We traveled five hours from Wilmington to Ellenboro, NC. Ellenboro is in Rutherford County and is located in the foothills of western North Carolina.
My grandmother and I planned and prepared our traditional feast of turkey and stuffing with all the trimmings. I was the sous chef, which means that I helped to prepare ingredients for the recipes. I also made brownie cupcakes with cream cheese icing!
After our big family meal on Thanksgiving day, my aunt, grandmother and I talked about our game plan for “Black Friday” shopping. We got up at 5:00 a.m. on Friday and shopped, shopped, shopped!
Sunday morning came and it was time to head back to Wilmington. Only four more weeks until Christmas!
