Thanks Uncle Bob

Uncle Bob gave a rotisserie oven just before Thanksgiving. Tonight I finally had a chance to use it. Best chicken ever! The crispy skin and moist and tender inside. Only way I will be cooking chicken anymore. And yes Uncle Bob I put the water into the drip pan 2 cups.

I will have to cook you a chicken, Uncle Bob!

Thanksgiving Fun

Thanksgiving would not be Thanksgiving with out the family.
Here is a glimpse into our Thanksgiving. The boys, daddy and Aunt Mary’s boyfriend
built a fort for my guys. The cousins were excited about this adventure. Between building they took turns on the go cart and tractors.  Girls pretty much hung out on the trampoline all day.
In the afternoon we had some wonderful hymns on the piano and organ from my SIL Arla and her MIL.
Then the guys came in and joined in by playing the banjo, piano, violin, cello and viola.  As us non music talent played scrabble and Pictionary. 
A day filled with family fun and relaxation. Could not have been a better day.

All 10 cousins together first time in at least a couple of years.
Cousins from Memphis was so glad to see them

Crafty Christmas

Can't believe it is this time already. When do you start making gifts? I am beginning, hopefully here soon, but not until after Thanksgiving. With the Thanksgiving shopping and cooking on top of a full schedule already there just is no creativity flowing.

What are you making this year? When I go around visiting blogs I see so many wonderful ideas. I am still unsure of what to make for each person on my list yet. I know I need to figure it out soon. I have many ideas just none that I am locked into yet.

Well off to get ready for my 4 guys orchestra concert today. This is an exciting day for all of us. We love the Mays very much and all their love for music and all children.

Will hopefully have a video clip of the concert for you to see. Will definitely have pictures
Have a Blessed Sunday
