A Thanksgiving: In Pictures

Thanksgiving Day: 10AM

After waking shortly after 9, getting my ipod fix & a shower, the day begins with a little breakfast and a review of the day's timeline.

Appetizers in full swing, both must be baked & out of the oven before the turkey can go in.

Turkey out of the brine and being prepped for roasting…a bit behind schedule.

As the roasting turkey freaks Nibbler out (see her try to get as far as possible from the house), I try to sneak in a couple more chores before guests arrive…I don't make it.

Then the prep continues, this time for all the side dishes.

As the temperature rises in the bird, things get into full swing.

Turkey out, side dishes in. Boy, would a dual oven come in handy, but I have to say I did pretty well managing my space & getting things out on the table pretty quick.

Prayer said, plates dished, dig in.

Dessert, a la Cheesecake Factory (but homemade).

Thanksgiving Day: 7PM

An after dinner trip to stock up on pants for the ever-growing soon-to-be-five-year-old: denied. Unable to enter the store at 6:57, as the were closing at 7. Bah Hum Bug.

Thanksgiving Day: 8PM

Winding down before calling it an early night (I had a 4AM wake up call looming over my head).
