Thanksgiving Fun!

We had a great Thanksgiving. Rod's entire family was here. The boys and Kami went to hit softballs while we waited for Bren's family to finish at their other party and while the turkey's cooked. Everyone seemed to have a great time. Ever since Matt came home from his mission he has asked if we could do a Turducken for Thanksgiving.(See what living in San Francisco for 2 years will do to you?) I finally told him if he would be in charge that I would get the stuff. Well he and the infamous Alyssa (aka Marissa, Melissa, Beluga, Alisha) put a LOT of time and effort into this work of art. For those of you that don't know- a Turducken is a chicken inside a duck inside a turkey. You have to completely de-bone all 3 birds except for the legs and wings of the Turkey.

I am happy to report that it was a success. The only little glitch we had was that it needed to be cooked a little longer than we planned. That is one HUGE solid piece of meat and with stuffing in between each bird too. When we carved into it- it was really pretty! Now everyone wants it to be a tradition. Hopefully Matt will take that on and be in charge again. Too much work for me with all the other preparations that were going on.

Kami's husband went to the dunes for Thanksgiving and she had to work so she had to stay behind. We took pictures of his "girls" to send him letting him know he was missed.

Bren's girls LOVE all the attention they get at family parties. Allie was lovin' on Cory all day- This picture was one of my favorites!

And of course what is Thanksgiving without a couple of our favorite PILGRIMS! Papa and the girls...

Hope all you TURKEYS had a great Thanksgiving with friends and family.

You know, I've heard of the Turducken and have been curious. I'm glad it was good - it sounds good. You have a darling family.

Turduken?! That is insane! I didn't even know that was possible. Sounds like a joke... but I'm a bit jealous I didn't get to try it! Crazy stuff.

Cute pictures!
