For lunch on Thanksgiving day, we ate at Uncle L.'s and Aunt K.'s

Cousins Tom and Chris setting up the place cards. Aunt K. had everything set up so lovely!

Uncle L. helping set out the china

It was so fun working in Aunt K.'s beautiful renovated kitchen! Uncle L. and Aunt K. renovated almost the whole kitchen by themselves, and it turned out so lovely.

" I saw this shirt and thought 'that's such an awesome design right there' and I just had to buy it..." :D

"Have a taste, Mom" (Meg and Katie: yes, that is wassail! Yummy!)

Uncle L. carving the turkey

Maddy and Bryce

Grandma always has a towel over her shoulder when in the kitchen...and her granddaughters have adopted the habit as well!


Eden kept saying that she wanted "pie" and was all excited about we asked if she wanted pumpkin or cherry pie (pointing them out to her). She said "no", and kept insisting she wanted pie. Finally she pointed to the ReddiWhip and said "I want pie!"...she didn't want pie; she wanted ReddiWhip! :)

Domino time!

Can you tell who won? :)

  1. Tom looks pretty good with a beard...just hard to think he old enough to grow one! :) I like Aunt Kay's new kitchen- very nice!
    Eden is so cute!

  2. How I missed celebrating Thanksgiving with family this year....! :(

    Aunt K. wassail looks so yummy....I need to get that recipe!!!

    Little Eden and her pie! So cute!!! Made me laugh!


  3. I like the added commentary to Christopher and I's picture. Very funny. =]
    (Thanks for the compliment on the beard, it mostly came about with laziness and "No Shave Novemember"...)

  4. Thomas~
    Glad you like the commentary. :D
    We know someone else that did "No Shave November"...only he did it last year. Before our friend did it we had never heard if it before! :)


Thanks for commenting!
