|The girls were excited to see one of their cousins.|
|Molly brought a secret surprise costume that she made –
even her socks have been made into turkey feet!
Finally on Monday my mom cooked her traditional turkey dinner that I have always loved. She uses her mother’s stuffing recipe, and always makes candied sweet potatoes. She tried to change it one year when I was a kid to something involving pineapple and I went ballistic. You can’t mess with Thanksgiving!! I have mastered her sweet potato recipe, and I can muddle my way through making a turkey, but I have never figured out gravy. She does that with ease. She is a much better cook than I am. It’s a good thing too since her microwave has a crack in it.
|Please excuse the presentation of the plate – I was in such a hurry
to sit down and eat this yummy food that I was just lobbing it onto
the plate. Plus…3 kids…I had to work quickly.
|Grace in “the white chair” – only my Grandma
was allowed to sit in this when I was a kid. I’m
always afraid that my kids will ruin it – and of
course I was the one who almost spilled her drink
all over it on Monday.
|Molly in an outfit that my mom gave her at least 2 years ago.
The doctor swears she is growing, but it still fits!
|You can see why this one’s not named Grace. Maggie was too busy
with the ipad to sit up for pictures.
