a calm crazy thanksgiving

Due to Jason's work schedule, we celebrated Thanksgiving today. We had some friends over (of whom we got zero good pictures so you will have to take my word for it) and had some really good food. It was a lot of fun. Jason made a great turkey, as usual. I didn't get a picture of it on the table but here it is, fresh out of the oven. YUM!

And here is a picture of our littlest turkey eating his Thanksgiving meal. I am loving the eyebrow.

Wonder of wonders, I actually managed to successfully make a pecan pie this year. I have attempted this feat every year since we've been here (Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas) and out of SEVEN years this is the very first that wasn't either soup or burnt to a crisp. I blame the German ovens (and, ahem, my lack of understanding of the settings) for this as I have successfully made pecan pies in the states. Regardless, I was happy.

It was a great day. Kids galore (to include a little bitty baby), way too much yummy food, card games, Christmas movies, was a day spent surrounded by many of the people and things that we are thankful for. I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well -- whatever day you might have celebrated!


  1. How did you get the Turkey to fit in the oven?! Browbeat it?!

  2. I don't know how Jason does it. That thing was 23 pounds!
