Ah, the smell of roasting turkey and stuffing, pumpkin pies and all the goodies of the season. Fortunately for us, mom and dad put on a wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner, as the accommodations in the basement are a little tight yet for hosting large groups. Ever try cooking a 20 pound turkey in a toaster oven? Me neither, and this wasn’t the year to start.
We did get to host visitors at the school for the holiday, a first for us. Grace was here for the whole weekend, and among other activities, helped G&G pick out a Christmas tree..
And the California cousins stopped by to take a tour as well. I think they were impressed by our high-class living accommodations. Except for this picture, they generally bundled up well and kept warm (and then, like true Wisconsin-ites, we went and ate ice cream at the dairy).
And we notched up our Christmas lights on the school from last year. This year we are featuring the bell tower (although I suspect it looks somewhat like a rocketship).
