Downtown Newhall hosted a paint-the-store-windows contest on Dec 5th. The kids in our complex got into the festivities by painting EVERYTHING about Christmas (Santa, snowman, tree, star, reindeer, and Baby Jesus...) on the window of the Cookbooks store. While they didn't win the contest, they had so much fun in the process. That's what it's about.
Turkey is my all time favorite meat! Every year I look forward to thanksgiving meal so I can stuff myself with turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes.
(Micaela made the place cards.)
This year was the most relaxed Thanksgiving we've ever had. My darling husband got up at 6:30 to put the bird in the oven. I woke up sharply at 7:30 saying, "We GOTTA PUT The Turkey IN!" He was like, yah, already done, go back to sleep. He also made the mashed potatoes. I don't know his secret but John makes the BEST mashes in the wide western world. We hung out with our dear friends the Haags and it was so casual. We read the sale bills, ate pie, went for a walk, watched the kids ride bikes... it was my favorite Thanksgiving!
They may not look it, but they ARE thankful.
