It was another FABULOUS Thanksgiving feast for our family…..

LOTS of food…

Prepared by the best cooks you’ll find anywhere…. (which included some wild turkey killed by Hunter….we ignored the arrow holes in the breast meat…LOL)

Desserts to die for!

And best of all….GREAT company…

(somehow missed getting Mom in the picture….!)

After we put down our forks and cleaned up the dishes….we collapsed…

Wayne just had foot surgery and is enjoying all the help he gets….LOLOLOL

Shoppers getting ready for black Friday….

And here is the true sign of a GREAT Thanksgiving meal….

My friend Dawn has had a difficult  year, dealing with aging parents….and I am just keeping my nose above water at school so we decided to have a play date.  We met in Guthrie, OK….at at The Boneyard Grill—which I might add is FABULOUS BBQ (sorry, no web site)

(very, very windy day…and yes, I do wear  my hair down….occasionally LOL )


Then we ventured to the Yarn Shop…..certainly a reason to drive to Guthrie….

After touching everything in the store and arguing about what color is burgundy and what color is purple….I still say the sweater was purple….We scored this yarn…



It’s beautiful….soft…..colorful….and PERFECT for a scarf for Dawn!  But my Christmas knitting will have to come first!


We did a bit of shopping and was sooooo disappointed that the store that had these boots on display was closed….



Probably for the best….we would have fought over who got to buy them…..tee hee….!


We had sooooo much fun and it was certainly a great therapy day!


After I got home I made these cookies….



Red Velvet cookies….will have cream cheese frosting sandwiched between too cookies when I give them away….


The recipe is SUPER easy….got it from Bakerella…just take a red velvet cake mix….stir in a stick of butter and 2 eggs….

scoop them out on your cookie tray (and I ALWAYS use parchment paper under the cookies….bakes great and no clean up)


Can’t wait to get them out of the freezer and add the frosting!


Now I’m off to Thanksgiving with the family….photos will be taken!


Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

My mother’s garden is magic this time of year. Here is our Thanksgiving rose picked the day before turkey day.

It looks great with her stained glass red hat.

Here are some pics from the rest of turkey day. We had a great time……ate a lot and laughed a lot. It ended way too fast!

and Dad doing what he enjoys best:

Hunter took these belly comparison pictures. Like father, like son???

Papa has also become a great playmate for JW.

He just doesn’t get up and down as fast!
