Late Breaking News

Thanksgiving 2008 ~ We often go out to eat or bring dinner in from a restaurant on holidays, but for some reason we were in the mood to cook this year.

I was in charge of the mashed potatoes. So here I am mashing away.

Wow, now that's a bowl of potatoes.

Looks like everything is about ready. Time to eat.

We let Grandma eat first. She does not remember Thanksgiving last year because she was in the hospital.
I'm waiting for the guys to fill their plates next.

We put them at the table in the jazz club. That's what we call our old living room that we put a pool table in and the dining room that we moved the piano into. They all talk about football and stuff.

I ate with Grandma in the kitchen. My mom hung out with us too but she did not eat. She said she was stuffed from sampling all day long while she was cooking.

Matt always gets to put Redi-Whip on his jello on holidays. Then guess what he does?

OMG!!! Can you believe this?

Here is the cake I picked out at the store. I don't like pumpkin pie.

My grandma made these turkey cutout cookies. Aren't they cute?

After dinner grandpa played pool with me. We had a very good time. I'm glad my grandparents were able to be with me today.

Looks like a great day! I'm like your mom, I graze all morning and then can't eat much - so I wander around and take pictures of everyone else eating!

Michelle said...

I'm hungry all over again! I could eat those potatos all by myself. Yum. And I'm with Matt, that's one of the best ways to eat Redi Whip!

Looks like you had a great Thanksgiving! I was in charge of mashed potatoes this year, too. I mashed them with the skin on, it looked rustic and they say all the vitamins are in the skin. I am with you, I do not like Pumpkin Pie either!

Did you get your Christmas Shopping done yet?
