Thanksgiving Festivities 2008
The morning began with a phone call from Paul Duncan wondering where Jeff was for the Turkey Bowl. He seemed to have fun playing and getting dirty, while I Slaved away in the kitchen. ;)
I decided to go the "easy" route this year and bought one of the Jenny O oven ready turkeys. You would think that they are fool proof, but, I found a way to fool them! I didn't realize which side had the "pop up timer" and so it went in breast down and I didn't find out that I put it in wrong until right before meal time. So another bit in the oven and I think it worked out great. It at least looked pretty! But next year I am going to do a turkey breast only or maybe a ham. Besides, my stomach doesn't take in as much as it did when I was a kid and my kids just don't eat enough!
It was a pretty low key day with the Kids providing some fun entertainment. Like Norah taking Zoe for a ride in the baby stroller.
I Couldn't wait for Black Friday to start (j/k - I didn't go out Friday morning, because Jeff had to work - His first BF @ Target!!) so I went to Michael's Thursday around 4pm to wait in line for the new Cricut Create and guess who was the first person there? Yup, ME! I totally was expecting a loooong line. I got my Cricut Create for 50% off and also some cartridges for something like 60% off. So we played with that this weekend to make some paper dolls. The girls and I have lots of fun with all that it can do with the push of a button!
We had some Thanksgiving Dessert with the Tatum family from Church. It was a great day with SOOO much to be thankful for. We are overflowing with blessings!
