Turkey Day. Gobble Gobble!

I'm gonna take a quick break from December photo project and recap Thanksgiving.
Pretty typical Thanksgiving, Tim and I went over to the Grandparents early to help with the last minute dishes, Mom, Dad and Chris joined up. A delectable meal was had. I had tried a new recipe for cranberry sauce, from Williams and Sonoma. It tasted like Christmas smells, a little overbearing almost, but it did tone down as days passed with the leftovers. Yum.

I also tried my hand at a blueberry pie. None of this canned blueberry nonsense either, a FRESH blueberry pie. I kind of freehanded the inside, and while it got a tiny bit liquidy, it ended up being super tasty. Only a bit of the ooze made it to the outside of the crust.

But really, the best part is in the top picture. I spent over an hour the night before Thanksgiving, making every single family member an Indian head dress to be worn for our November Nordyke Family picture. And I am of the belief that it turned out quite well...if you ever need a laugh during the holidays, put your grandparents into culturally offensive head gear. It's fantastic.

umm thanks for the comment on my blog. It's not supposed to be a wreath at all though...just a meat grinder. Not sure in which way you meant that.
