Saturday, November 26 – Another wonderful, fun-filled Thanksgiving. While Carrie and Marsha were hard at work in the kitchen, the boys played Corn Hole in the driveway. This is Carrie's one roommate, Nick, and Paul, showing off his great tossing form. After both teams had to go back to 11 seven different times, Paul's team finally hit 21 on the nose.


Is this considered "too many cooks in the kitchen?"


We actually had two turkeys this year. The first one was smoked…we won't go into the why Carrie had to run out an buy another turkey…on Thanksgiving morning at that. Let's just say it had to do with the smoker, a little grease flame-up and very dry grass. Although most of the turkey could be saved (only lost the wings), it was VERY YUMMMMMY!  Darn near burned the house down too….YIKES!!!  This was a smoker, outside, – not a deep fryer!

Carrie cooked the second turkey the traditional way. She does not put the stuffing in her bird, but does put lots of yummy vegetables in to give it a delicious taste.


Here is our hostess waiting for her guests.


Everyone brought awesome food, drinks and laughter to the Thanksgiving table.


What a wonderful group of young adults. We play the role of their mom and dad each Thanksgiving.


It is a tradition that Nick and Paul serve on the dish-washing crew.


Hope your Thanksgiving was a delightful as our was.

On Saturday, Carrie and Marsha did their marathon cookie baking. They started at 10 and finished at 3. They worked nonstop baking such favorite cookies as Chocolate Chip, cut-outs, Magic Bars, Funfetti, etc. Paul's favorite is the Ruglach. We made three batches of these.


Paul asks, "How can I help?" In unison, Carrie and Marsha respond, "Wash the dishes." Our wish is his command. Look how happy he is to help out!


Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see ya'll back real soon. Have a great day!
