pictures


I realize I haven't posted many pictures recently. Heck, I only had 2 blogs for the month of November! 3 with this one I guess. Soooooo, like everyone else we had some Thanksgiving. I hosted it at my home for the first time. I cooked 2 turkeys. One we did in the oven (the big one, thankfully) and it was done in time for all 26 guests. The other we decided to fry. Well, we had to wait forever for the oil to heat up, so that became our turkey dessert. I think it was better that way anyway because everyone wanted to watch it go in and see how it was done. The overall concensus is that it was more moist, but my thought was - how much money did I just spend on all of that oil? I personally don't know that it's worth it. Maybe if you fried up the whole neighborhood's turkeys........

Anyway, here are some pics since I haven't shared any recently.The turkey going in and then coming out. It was a big deal folks.

We had a crazy rain downpour with hail. It looked like snow! There was a LOT of it.Sean with his "Christmas ball." It's a wad of lights that don't work, but we needed the rest of the lights to finish the roof line! He's a little embarassed about that...The finished product.Our family, although it's a blurry picture.Lauren during light hanging. It was a little chilly and she wanted to wear a hat.I can't get those silly crocs off of her. Annoying.

Man I can't imagine Christmas in the South - Do you sing "Let It Snow" or the Dashing through the Snow? But I could deal with the nice weather!
