Thanksgiving Day

Miss Ellie Mae is eyeing up the turkey.
I cooked a 25lb turkey in a turkey roaster.
 It's so much easier using the roaster because it frees up the oven for the casseroles I make.
My hubby has the job of carving the turkey.
Some hungry guys are waiting for the yummy turkey.
Everyone pitches in and brings side dishes and dessert.
This turkey had huge legs.
Brandon's favorite part of the turkey is the legs.
Thanksgiving wouldn't be complete without my nieces and nephew making crafts.
Morgan read Thanksgiving books to Tyce.
From my family to yours:
Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Tree

This Thanksgiving I created a center piece that the whole family can enjoy.
The tree has 'Thankful' cards hanging from the branches.
Each family member will fill out a card sharing what they are thankful for.
The card isn't big enough to write everything I am thankful for.
Please know, dear blogger friends, I am thankful for you!

This is why I love hockey.

I love watching my son play hockey.

Especially when he does this…
and this...
and this….
 and this...
 and THIS!
 Brandon is a defenseman and he is really good at what he does.
This is why I love hockey!

Summer Trunks

Unknown Mami
I must explain before you see the photos below.
My son forgot his swimming trunks and borrowed a pair of his Uncles.
He normally doesn't look this nerdy.
However, his personality is accurately captured in each photo.

Friday Fragments

This time last week was my 45th birthday.  My son said with astonishment in his voice, "Mom, I thought you were 41."  Hey, I'll take any younger year as a compliment.  However, he ended his thought with "You will be over 50 when I graduate college."  Gee, thanks for reminding me!
There was a windstorm that knocked our canopy off the posts.  
Luckily my husband was able to put it back together.
Zachary had all four wisdom teeth removed.  He's been walking around in agony for the last two days. I feel for him. I had mine taken out when I was a senior in high school.  It's no walk in the park.
 My friend, Audrey made me two hats for my birthday.  
It was cold enough last night to wear one.
Corbie found a new place to sit on one of the kids chairs.
My princess has found her throne.
I'm hooked on a new show, "The Originals".
  It's a spin off from "Vampire Diaries".
What can I say? I'm one of those vampire junkies.
Speaking of vampires. There is a new show "Dracula" that I began watching too.
I'm not as impressed with this series, but I'll give it a chance.
Two of my boys like "The Walking Dead."
They have been after me to watch it with them.
I finally sat through 2 episodes.
Can't say zombies eating people interest me.

Have a wonderful Friday!
