Thanksgiving: A retrospective :)

This past week was so busy and so full of picture taking opportunities that I hardly know where to begin. BUT... since Thanksgiving was the reason we were all together, I thought that I'd start there.

Thanksgiving is a time for baking yummy goodies!
Making mini chocolate pies was great fun for the kids.
I love the look of sheer joy on her face as she licks the bowl.
I must admit... those pies are pretty delicious!

Thanksgiving is a time for family and for the grandchildren to learn cooking skills from Grammy.
J came up with the idea of making cream puffs which are not usually on our menu, but we ran with it and are sooo glad that we did. I imagine that we'll be making these again soon!

Thanksgiving is turkey time!!
Chris was the turkey frier extraordinaire!
Despite a little oil spill, that fire extinguisher was not needed.
The turkey came out moist and delicious.
Thanks, Chris!

The kids sure did like their dinner!
