Yesterday was perfect.
I got up early to put the Turkey in and put this vinyl on my office door — made me happy!
My cousin, Missy and her family arrived late Wednesday night from Seattle. At 9:30, I snapped photos of everyone I could find. Most were eating breakfast.
Trey was watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade.
And Dad and Clark were setting up the puzzle.
This is Missy and Chris, btw.
I couldn’t find Addie or Baily — later learned they were up in the toy room, where Addie was preparing her own feast!
Geoff laid out winter wear for the kids to choose from …
and they were soon outside sledding by the side of our house. I was able to snap photos from the warmth of my laundry room.
Missy and I were working on pies. And yes, I remained unshowered and without make-up all day long!
Missy went to a pie-making demonstration where they cut small leaves as a top crust on an apple pie. I tried it with hearts and HOW CUTE is this?
This is a homemade chocolate cream pie. It was SO YUMMY.
Turkey is done! This btw is when I start freaking out a little. It seems like there are always so many last-minute things to pull together. Luckily I have a patient husband and LOTS of help.
Just as we were sitting down I realized that Addie wouldn’t be joining us. I didn’t have the heart to disturb this slumber!
Everything was warm and delicious.
For some reason I only took a photo of one end of the table. Oh well!
After dinner the tryptophan took effect and I settled in (sans camera) for a long afternoon/evening of napping, movie watching, game playing and talking.
It was a perfect day!
