Look who was here this morning...working her butt off...again. Anytime Barb has a day off, she is here by 7:30 doing everything that needs to be done (and it's not even Saturday).
Gary even came out to help us and we were done in no time.
The dynamic duo joined us too...they didn't care that it was in the 20s.
Sidney is pretty much back to normal....
Gary split some wood...so we could keep the stove going all day.
I went in and started on our Thanksgiving dinner. Cleaned the turkey, made stuffing, set the table, went to the store to get a couple of things.... Only 7 of us for dinner tonight...the smallest number ever.
While I was in the kitchen, I watched the Dog Show. After that I got on the couch and watched a Meryl Streep movie. Why not...everything was in control.
Around 4 I went out and opened up the indoor for the horses...it was a little spitty outside. No takers.
By 4:30 Jenny, Coop and Finn arrived along with Nana Pat (who made a pot of French onion soup for our first course). We had already started with an artichoke and cheese spread with crackers.
The soup was delicious. Randy arrived just in time to join us.
I had started on the squash and mashed potatoes...the asparagus was all done...just needed to take out the turkey and put in the dry stuffing....and make the gravy.
Jenny and the boys got into a game of scrabble.
Nana Pat took pictures...she has a great camera!
Then it was time to eat.
We had...turkey, stuffing, gravy, squash, asparagus, cranberry orange relish, cranberry sauce and waldorf salad. Everything tasted great.
Finn and Coop were into the turkey and mashed potatoes...not all that other stuff.
Jenny made two pies for dessert....pumpkin and pecan.
Gucci looks the way I feel....
I don't know if I can even stand to go out by the fire...totally pooped.
Night all. Boy am I full.
