Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! (a little late, I know, but photo collection and editing took a little longer than I expected...)

Ted and I drove to Virginia for the holiday - about 8.5 hours of driving time. The kitties didn't come with us this time, but they'll travel with us for Christmas.

Thanksgiving Day was much easier than usual this year, thanks to some division of labor in the kitchen. The menu included:
  • Organic, pre-cooked turkey (yum! and easy)
  • Sweet potato and marshmallow casserole
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Green bean casserole
  • Stuffing, stuffing, stuffing
  • Kale salad with butternut squash
  • Brussels sprouts
  • And all the fixins (cranberry sauce, rolls, gravy, etc)

Try your hand at the twin game: Ted or Paul? ;)

In addition to delicious food, we got lots of time with Ted's family - playing at the park, several family dinners, and sorting through the storage shed!

If you think it is easy to get a clear photo of a 3-year old, then you must not know any 3-year olds.

And of course, what would a family gathering be without a little photo shoot?

We were a little sad when the time finally came to leave, but our own pets were very, very happy when we came back home:

And since we needed just a little more Thanksgiving turkey, I roasted a half turkey from a local farm today! These are the kinds of things you do to fill your time when you only work two days a week...

Now all we need is a little cranberry sauce, some mashed potatoes, stuffing...
