Anyway to the fun part Charles turned 7 on Wednesday so we had fun celebrating.
While I prepared the turkey. All my years of training had prepared me for this mayo facial turkey technique:
I am spreading a compound butter under the skin. Yummy! Please excuse the crazy hair. I can't do anything with it right now. Meanwhile there was an exciting bout of boxing in the rain.
Devon was the announcer and he did a great job.
And Behold! The magnificent glory that is a thanksgiving table........
Jessica and I each made cranberry sauce this year. Mine was jelled and Jessica's was a whole berry sauce. They were yummy and I think a new tradition.
It was an exciting week for Charles, he lost a tooth!
On Friday we all went to Ape caves to see the meatball.
I imagine this was similar to the view Jonah had.
Henry fell asleep so Daniel put him under his sweatshirt.
Then Daniel and I got to take the girls to do baptisms at the Portland Temple. It was such a neat experience. I have never done baptisms there before. You enter from a side entrance.
The girls had left their recommends at home, but the recorder was able to look them up so after a few min we were able to proceed. The font was the smallest I have ever seen! I'm sure the girls were afraid of hitting their heads. The regulations recently changed, so I was able to wear my street clothes while watching the baptisms. I had brought my whites to change into, just in case. The brother who had given us his family names was able to attend and help with the confirmations. It was a special experience.
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
