Thanksgiving Day

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner tonight, over at my kids' mom's house. My girls (from left), Lindsey, Cameron (holding their new baby brother), and Emily, all pitched in to cook a wonderful meal. Emily, my oldest, did the lion's share of the work, but man, did she do a good job.

Turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, gravy, potato rolls, candied yams with marshmallows, green bean casserole with french onions on top, devilled eggs, and stuffing (tons of stuffing!) rounded out supper.

For dessert, 4 different types of pies; apple, peanut butter (yes, and you have to try it before you say anything! It's awesome), pumpkin, and lemon meringue.

Every last bit of it home made. Their mom even said she stayed out of the kitchen most of the day. Emily stepped up to the plate and, with a little help from her younger sisters, and hit a home run!

So, I hope all of you have had a wonderful Thanksgiving day. Remember, friends and family is what it's all about. Hug your kids. Hug your spouse. Kick the dog if he eats turkey off the table, but not real hard.

Drive safe, designate a driver, and arrive alive!
