a wonderful Thanksgiving

We spent Thanksgiving day this year at Crystal's house, enjoying the company of three families in our tribe. Best of all, Will joined us! He had another invitation, but he wanted to be with his family that day.

There was an amazing feast, with turkey (soaking in stock, so moist!) stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans, candied yams, and several dessert choices. Dave made strawberry frozen drinks for the kids early in the day, and at sunset built a fire (okay, he tried but the fire never really took off!) so the kids could roast marshmallows for s'mores.

The kids spent the day snacking, playing video games or bouncing around on the trampoline. Dan spent virtually the whole afternoon on the trampoline, some of that time snacking on an assortment of finger foods -- everything from 7-layer jello, to cheetos, to marshmallows and Hershey's squares.

I LOVE ALL THE PICTURES!!!! Your awesome for taking so many. I was in there cooking and I think maybe took 4 or 5 (I know...ME????). Anyhow, you captured our special day so wonderfully. It meant a lot to me to have my tribe at my home. I'm totally up for doing it again SOON! Hmmm, maybe New Years???

Now I'm gonna go steal some of those pics! heehee

Oh gee great. I am going to be known as the guy who couldn't start a fire for the kids on Thanks Giving !!! Oh well, at least it was great day and we loved having you and your family over.
