Thanksgiving Recap

How was your Thanksgiving? We had a nice, quiet day. We went to my aunt's house, and it was just the five of us (aunt, uncle, cousins, me)...and of course the two doggies! We ate lots of food and then just watched movies by the fire. It was nice. And before dinner, my cousin took some pictures of me and Sadie for our Christmas card! I will share some of the outtakes with you, but I'm keeping the actual picture a secret for now :) I ordered my cards last night; can't wait to see how they came out! We hope you had a great Thanksgiving! It was so hard to come back to work today...

  1. Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving!

    I love fried turkey too but you've got to be extra careful with those fryers! I've heard some horror stories!

    Anyways, those pics of you and Sadie are great!! Looking forward to seeing your holiday card. Reminds me that we need to get started on ours!

  2. I love your photos :) We always have fried turkey too.. it is an event ;)

  3. Fried turkey is a thanksgiving staple in my family too. :-)

    If those pictures were your outtakes I cant wait to see how your chirstmas card came out, those are some really nice pictures. :-) I just ordered our card the other day.

  4. You look great Laurie!! (Sadie too!) I'm sure the final picture you picked for the cards was smashing!! I never had turkey made in a deep fryer, but I have heard it is absolutely delicious! Sounds like you had a really nice Thanksgiving Day! It is always hard to go back to work after such a nice time, isn't it?


  5. you guys look great, laurie. :)sadie looks super cute in the sweater, and i am jealous you had deep fried turkey - ive never had that before!

  6. Thanksgiving was just fine and all about food...nothing else :)

  7. Glad you had such a nice Thanksgiving! I've heard about turkey fryers, but have never seen one ... thanks for sharing your pics! Great photos of you and the pups!

  8. Mmmm fried turkey...if I had the space and the skill I'd make one :)

  9. Thanks, everyone! Glad you like the pics. Now, of course, I am second guessing the two pics I chose for our card haha. But hopefully they print out nicely! I should receive them soon.

    And fried turkey is awesome! My aunt and uncle always do it that way. But yes, it can be very dangerous! I stay away from the actual frying for the most part lol.

  10. It looks like you had a wonderful time!

    Nubbin wiggles,

    Cathy, thanks!! My uncle has been frying turkeys (and other stuff) for years now, so he's a pro...but I'd prob be scared to do it!!
