we had a wonderful and abundant thanksgiving, as always. here are a few pics. the one above shows our table settings complete with the cornocopia name holders that shannon and the boys made out of salt dough and runts. the boys make the placeholders every year.
here is our menu. i think a couple things were forgotten, and it was amazing. just yum.
here's shannon looking good. and walking behind her is our new brother-in-law, whom my kids affectionately call "the tickle monster." he's a great guy and we are thankful to have him in the family.
this is black friday. if you look carefully you can see that the microwave clock says 4:49. that's A.M. yep, we are that family. what can i say? old traditions die hard, i guess. this is my sister mary acting angry (?) and dad trying to look sleepy. i think. i don't really remember, actually it was too early.
