We spent Thanksgiving in Maine with my Dad and my sister. They did a great job putting on the whole shindig--turkey and all the trimmings!
I brought two pies, apple and pumpkin, which were quite possibly the worst ones I have ever made. I don't usually falter in the baking area--not really sure what happened, but they were not good. Oh well--everything else was great, (especially my sister's yeast rolls, of which I had three.)
Before we sat down to eat we headed out to see the new miniature horse that is being boarded at the farm down the road. Dad showed Ella how to feed him some apples. His mouth is so small that teh apples have to be cut into quarters for him to get them in his mouth!!
Then James had to have his traditional ride on the old McCormick Farmall tractor.
I snapped this shot of Chris and Ella--adorable. I love the way he is looking at her, and the new hairstyle she is sporting (which reminds me of Little Cindy Lou Who from the Grinch).
Finally, Dad tried to snap a family photo of us for our Christmas card.Lots of squirming, laughing, yelling, and overall antics and a few minutes later this is the best we came up with! Hmm . . this may work, afterall. It certainly is REAL!!! (James' tongue and all!)
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday with your family. Happy Thanksgiving!
