Gobble Gobble!

 
This year we had Thanksgiving at our house and it was nice. The food was nice and warm and we even had a dish I'd never made before! Look at us branching out!
 
The table before the spread
 The table with the spread on it.  Spent from 7am until 3:30pm cooking and cleaning...my feet hurt! I'm sure you all can relate.
 My crew at the table...yes Eli is crying. Because what is a Thanksgiving with out family drama right? I'm sure it was over the fact that we didn't get his peanut butter and jelly sandwich on the table right away.  Yup...that kid ate a PB&J for Thanksgiving you can see the Jif on the table...what have we done!?!
We sat down and ate a wonderful dinner and the boys were mostly done by the time I got to my plate and seriously after like 20-30 minutes they were done eating....HOURS of cooking and it was all over in 30 minutes tops!  Thank God I only do this every other year...I could take up drinking if I did this every year!  However...the hang up for not doing Thanksgiving is you don't get the leftovers...and we like leftovers. 

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, we had a good one at home even in the midst of adversity we prevailed.

Goose Egg

So....here is what I did for fun on Friday!  Had a blast...however I'm not sure I'll do it again.
That is my goose egg...jealous?  Yeah I knew you would be.  Want to know how to get one?  Well I'll tell you how to get one.  Help your husband load the truck up for a dump run and then get a bungee or two and help strap down said garbage.  While working on strapping things down, hold one end of the bungee while said husband works to get the other side down.  Make sure it is either hooked or it slips out of your hand, that way it can lung back at you.  THAT is how you get a goose egg like mine!  This picture was pretty much right after it happened...Frank took a picture...I thought I was bleeding profusely from my head, however that was just my head swelling.  Gorgeous!!!
Here I am later than night after an hour or so of icing it.  I had a pretty good headache going and way tender!
Now you see by Sunday night the pretty colors of the rainbow are making their appearance.  It&…
