Just a quick dispatch from our Thanksgiving holiday...
Enjoying my six days off from work with both of my misters, big and small, and Grandie and Grandpa, who came up from TN on Wednesday.
Grandie and I cooked and baked for about two days, only to have all of Thanksgiving dinner consumed in about ten minutes. We made T's mom's buttermilk yeast rolls and sweet potato casserole, along with corn pudding, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce (with pecans and oranges), pumpkin pie, stuffing and of course turkey. All organic and mostly local. We wanted a heritage turkey but settled on a cheaper, free-range one instead. Grandpa fixed the mashed potatoes and carved the turkey.
Georgia waited for the crumbs to fall.
Once G and G arrived our apartment turned into a circus with rough-housing and goofing around by all parties.
Spider-Man paid us a visit as well.
Tomorrow is the last full day with G and G, and then Sunday they leave for TN. T and I are taking everyone to Berry Meadow Farm in Far Hills, NJ for their alpaca holiday. Hopefully, Grandie and I will score some nice wool while we're there.
