Thaksgiving

Picture heavy, few words.  Making a schedule is good for my organization; it looks like I knew what I was doing in these pictures, right?  Especially with my potato peeling crew.
 And my table setup crew, with Bebop supervising.
 And, of course, Jeff had to chuck up a wooden paddle in the drill driver to mash the sweet potatoes.

Everyone has learned that they really have to line up for a picture, or they won't get fed.  Dogs line up in hopes of getting food, too.

 OK, already! We want food!

 Isn't this a wonderful picture of my daughter and her husband?
 The baby is our friend Greg's granddaughter.  Our granddaughter went to see the other family, since her daddy's on sabbatical this year, and they had time to drive.
 Turkey #1, right next to Ryan.


 Turkey #2.  Total weight: 49.23 pounds.



 Our friend and his baby granddaughter, age 4 months.
 And, desserts!  Apple, pumpkin, Lemon chess, lemon meringue and cranberry walnut pies, plus carrot cake and 2-color cake.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Howdy Marjie. What a wonderful set of photos. Looks like a fabulous family time together. Bet there wasn't much left over afterwards. Gotta love big family meal times! No worries, and love, Carol (and Stella).

Nothing like a little dinner party for 20 to test your organization skills. Looks like a great time and you had plenty of help.

Another successful Thanksgiving! What a feast and you all look so nice too. I do love that picture of your daughter and husband - it's a framer!! Sorry your granddaughter wasn't there with you but it's nice that you had another baby to cuddle with. What a beauty.
