Black Friday and Thanksgiving Memories

Call us Crazy...well, only half crazy, as
we did not go out with those who were first in line when the stores opened at 4 a.m...
...We waited until after 6 a.m...and I'd say we still did very well. By lunch time we had plenty of bags...
...gifts for family and friends.





I hope everyone had a special Thanksgiving day with loved ones.
I had plenty of help in the kitchen. These two were the 'contestants' in the potato peeling competition.

Cleaning the remaining turkey from the carcass is a tedious job...so one must maintain a sense of humor.




These grandmas have prepared and cleaned up after many a Thanksgiving meal, so they deserve to relax over pie and a second cup of coffee.

Meanwhile, in the kitchen...the next generation has stepped up to handle the clean-up responsibilities.



A lovely hand-made card and these wonderful treats greeted me in the early hours of the morning, as I came to the kitchen to prepare the turkey.
Thank you for the heart-warming surprise.


Greetings from our house to yours this Thanksgiving weekend.

Enjoy your family and friends.
