Waking up to coffee~!
Kelly and Terry carving the turkeys. Our power went out about 11:00 a.m. 2 hrs b4 turkey done time. So we put it out on the grill and decided we may do that every year. It was juicy but nice and crispy skin.
Ben and Anna Byrd from Australia, now living in Vancouver joined us. They were a delightful addition. I lived with Ben's great Aunt Galvesta Taylor in Bozeman in college. We were delighted to connect with the "Aussie Byrd's" again. Lots of family and friends were with us--so much to be thankful for!
A familiar sight with Suzanne--she's always washing dishes. Yes, we do appreciate that sweet sister!
Classic Wayne...he was waiting a LONG time for the pie (or should I say the whipped cream). He sure would hate to be caught smiling. We did catch him but unfortunately not on film. We do love it when you come tho- and Uncle Chip too, below with Braden is "part of the family".
Everyone wants Braden time. He is a precious little guy, taking it all in.
Trying to walk, jump off, our dinner to make room for pie.
Friday is COOKIE DAY! Wahoo..Tonya brings the makins and the kids and Ben had a wonderful time decorating. Unfortunately, Janae and Kelly had to leave just before this excitement.
Whew--at the end of the day. Ben, Anna and I took in "Black Friday" at 10:00 p.m. a great time I might add. They hadn't experienced it and they still really haven't as things were very calm at that hour. When we got home at 11:15, Tonya was a picture of relaxation. Kitchen all cleaned up!
We did miss Gretchen who was in Hawaii for convention having a lovely time and Justin who was camping in the snow in the "Enchantments" near Leavenworth!--we're waiting to see his blog pictures--Justin??
