Happy Thanksgiving!

We took advantage of the week off school and went to Tellus Museum with Danielle, Lily, and Quincy; and Terry, Derek, and Ryan. Here are G and the girls outside, in front of the giant tractor and in front of the museum, and a video of all of the kids panning for gemstones.

G really liked the way his toy cars all fit together and thought they looked like a big puzzle.

We were all excited for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade on TV and hope to see it in person one year. Chip decided that all of his animals would like to watch, too, so he brought them all down from his bed. It was a good thing, too, because Spiderman and Beary (from Build-A-Bear Workshop) saw themselves on TV.

We are THOSE kind of people, who are fanatics about their favorite recipe. We use this recipe, which involves brining, variable heat, and aromatics. Here are before, during, and after photos of our bird.

We went to Jack's, Jen's, and Baby-In-Belly Kelly's house for dinner with Bun and Papa, and Jen's parents and brother. We had lots of great food, wine, and dessert and played a few games. The favorite game of the night was Euchre, for which it is hard to find players here in Georgia. It was a great day, and we hope you had a great Thanksgiving, too.
