Our Thanksgiving...

A couple of pictures from a past Thanksgiving when my only child had fur and a tail!

Thanksgiving turned out quite well. The evening before Caillou helped with some of the cooking. He really enjoyed making deviled eggs, there weren't many left by the next day! He ate them as fast as we could make them! Caillou was completely in charge of mashmallow placement on the candied yams, there were many many marshmallows. Thanksgiving dinner was served at noon, my favorite was the mashed potatoes and gravy, sooooo sooooo buttery! Jasper loved the cresent rolls and stuffing and homemade cranberry sauce. And Caillou of course was happy with eating nothing but deviled eggs! Neither of the boys cared for the turkey too much, just like mama... turkey never has been my favorite! The boys enjoyed toasting with sparkiling apple cider... and mama had some laughs from the loud toddler burping that followed! We had some free movie passes and went to see The Fantastic Mr. Fox! We loved it!!!! Very cute! During the end scene, some lively music came on, and Caillou jumped out of his seat and began dancing down the aisle of the movie theater!!! We came home, and the kids ate some more leftovers and we brought out the pumpkin whoopie pies... these for sure will be a new Thanksgiving tradition for us! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  3. It seems as though you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Your dinner sounds like it was really good.
    Pearlene was so young. I remember how cute she was always dressed.

    I hope you are having fun at the Christmas tree lighting ceremony today.

    Keep warm. I can't believe how cold it is. Finally some rain, some hail, and some thunder.
    My favorite kind of day.

    Hugs and kisses to you and your two angels
