2nd Thanksgiving

"The informality of family life is a blessed condition that allows us to become our best while looking our worst." ~ Marge Kennedy

We had '2nd Thanksgiving' last weekend. Most of the family that couldn't be here for the FIRST Thanksgiving were in town for the weekend. So, we all got together at my Grandparents and had MORE turkey!! YAY!

So, there were two turkeys. One of my aunts carved one, and another aunt carved the other. Some how it became a competition as to who could carve the most meat AND who did it in the most visually appealing manner. Here they are making their case to the jury.. i.e. the rest of us.

As you can see, my Aunt Cindy (in the yellow) is a little about her turkey carving skills. An on-looker, my Aunt Ladonna, jumped in with her support of my Aunt Cindy. You can tell by the look at my Aunt Gails face what she thought about that.

But, turkey is turkey no matter how you cut it. So there was a tie. They were both great sports about it. And the turkey was delicious..per usual. Along with the chocolate pies, cheesecakes, rolls, pasta salad. Oh my gosh, I have to just stop right there. I can feel my thighs growing just THINKING about all that food.
