Forget roses! This Thanksgiving, Bachelor and Bachelorette alums Chris Lambton and his wife, Peyton Wright, are handing out plates of mouth-watering fried turkey to celebrate the holiday. Making their home in Lambton's native Cape Cod, Mass., the couple will join a group of 20 family members — including both sets of their parents — for a giant family dinner.
To feed their extended family, the Lambtons whip up turkey, two ways. "Chris's brother, Mark, handles the deep fried turkey while Chris smokes the other turkey," Peyton tells Us Weekly of the ritual. Peyton and the Lambton ladies pitch in to prepare the sides and her brother-in-law, Mark, is responsible for dessert.
"Peyton loves having family and friends all together and is a wonderful and gracious host," Chris tells Us of his wife, whom he met in 2010 and married in 2012. "She cooks up a storm and is always the life of the party."
In the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, the couple — currently on a break from filming HGTV's Going Yard — love to take part in traditional New England activities like apple picking and leaf peeping. The landscapers also often take time just to enjoy the view from their very own backyard. "Fall is special for us because that's when we met and began developing our relationship," Peyton tells Us. "We love building fires in our fire pit and snuggling up outside with a blanket!"
