I would add, make sure they are tightly wrapped or the meat can dry out.

Congratulations on your happy event! :bounce:

Like Kuan said "no problem"

Just a couple points in regards to safety,be sure your turkey is well chilled before you freeze it to avoid raising the freezer temp to high and affecting other frozen items , i.e ice cream.

Also let the breast defrost for a couple days in your refrigerator in a pan, not over night at room temp.

If your going to re heat the bird for the party I would recommend "under"cooking it in the initial phase so it doesn't dry out during re heating.

Good luck and congrats
