Thanksgiving 2009

This year we were able to spend Thanksgiving with both sets of the kids' grandparents up to Red's parents'. Yummy food, good company...good times!!

Grammy's tradition on letting them pick their animal plate

Papa carving the turkey

I made these: mashed organic yukon golden potatoes

 ...and the salad in the back - spring mix with pecans and craisin and a homemade mustard vinaigrette dressing



My parents left the next morning.  Friday we spent some time at Carr's showing the kids their chickens.

 Karrots holding one of the chickens.  She kept cuddling her cheek to it.


Collecting souvenirs

In the afternoon, the girls all went out and looked for clothes for our family picture coming up after Christmas then we all met up again for another feast of leftovers.  (My stomach is still recovering!!)

 Carr's $6 turkey butter she forgot to bring to their Thanksgiving dinner so we had it for leftovers the next night
