Bryce's parents came to visit and it was great. I had to work on Thanksgiving eve but had some of the preparation done before: the cranberry sauce, pies and chopped vegetables for stuffing. Bryce and his mom made their homemade butter horns and then we spent Thanksgiving day cooking up a storm.

Tyce played in a singles ward turkey bowl that morning that almost ended in a brawl.

Before our feast this cute turkey made his debut. Some kids kept eating his face and others got upset and tried to make a new one. Some kids had no problem eating whatever plumage they liked while others furiously rearranged the vegetables to ensure perfect proportions. Maintaining this vegetable tray was a workout for the OCD among us.

A bird not meant to be eaten, apparently.
Mary set the table beautifully, as usual. We used our gold table cloth and the white china with the gold band. We had turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, butter horn rolls, orange jello, corn, and cranberry punch. It was great.

We all said what we were thankful for and we are truly a blessed bunch.

Al and Judy did some projects around the house for us and we were very appreciative of their talent and their willingness to help. They hung shelves and put a door handle on our closet. Last time they came they cleaned our garage!

I love reflecting on my blessings and spending time with the people I love.
