This is how we started our day; moving snow. We got about eight inches the night before, so after we passed the time waiting for the sun to come up by eating cinnamon rolls, we all went out to work and play.
Frank and I worked via snow blower and shovel and the kids played via whatever they could find.
Grace was thrilled because Ray, our neighbor and snowplower (read: Man Who Makes the Snow Mountain) had just plowed next door before we got out there. She had much to be thankful for today.
Here's a shot of the turkey and my new baster.
I know you want to know more about the baster, so...
First let me say, I love that it stands on the end like this. One less mess on the counter or extra plate to deal with. The bulb is easy to squeeze and I just LOVE the design. I splurged on a new baster this year because I got tired of having to go into the kids' rooms to dig through their toys to find it. For some reason, they both think the turkey baster is the greatest kitchen invention and always manage to pilfer it from my drawer. So, I say, let bygones be bygones and I'll buy another $6 baster. I only wish I would have done it sooner.
The rest of the day was kind of a non event. The kids are both battling the beginnings of a cold. Frankie got sick twice last night and Grace is coughing again. Neither of them are really interested in the dinner part of the day, so we just took it easy. All of us got to fit in a nap, which is always wonderful.
Georgia slept with all of us.
We hope you all had a lovely holiday. Happy Thanksgiving.
