Turkey Day 2009

Thankful for good family. We spent thanksgiving this year with Andi's family. Andi's mom Janie has been saying for weeks that my sister-in-law Lindsay and I were doing all the cooking. So we showed up at 9:00am this morning, pulled up our sleeves and put on our aprons to cook! Luckily, we have the very wise instruction of Janie, Andi's aunts and grandma.  Here's a few photos from our day. Hard to believe that after weeks of planning and six hours of cooking ... it only took 20 minutes until bellies were full and all the caos was over!

Who cleans the turkeys?
We play Rock, Paper, Scissors

Ha! I won - thank goodness!

The dressing's coming together!

Food's in the ovens ... now we wait

So much to be thankful this year. Giving thanks for my parents, family and friends. Thankful for my husband and my new extended family. Praise God for I have been truly blessed!
