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!

It is so fun to read your blog and see how big your girls are. They are beautiful! Children grow up too fast! We are considering coming down to California again and if we do I will be sure to let you know when. It was so fun to see you the last time we were there.

It is so fun to keep up with everyone through their blogs. Your girls are so beautiful and I can't believe how big they are. Children grow up too fast. We are considering going to California for another Disneyland trip and would love to see you. It was so fun to get together the last time we were in California.
