Boogers and all

I love this little boy. 

Boogers and all.

Hopefully boogers don't totally gross you out. 

I think boogers smeared across his face makes him cute.

Thanksgiving 2009

The peeps: My grandparents, the kids, and Alex and I.
The menu: Fried turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, corn pudding (don't have a picture for proof), sausage and cranberry stuffing, bourbon glazed sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce (from a can- I love that stuff) home-made rolls, and apple and pumpkin pie.

The pics:
Fishin for extra "taters".

The Bub.

This takes serious concentration. He was having a blast sticking that poor turkey with that thing and fillin him with butter- you just cant tell in this picture.

Real men fry a turkey in a pink glove.

Bye bye mister turkey...look at all that butter.

He fried in their for about 55 minutes.  It was nice not having him in my oven.

Bubba and Great Grandpa Bill.

Hannah and her Great Grandma decorated cookies. :)

She only helped herself to a couple.

Little cookie people.

Me with parsley hands.

Bourbon glazed sweet potatoes. Nothing better.

Sausage and cranberry stuffing. There are no words.

And whats a Thanksgiving without green bean casserole?

The best mashed potatoes I have ever had. Thanks to Ree Drummond.

Me again. Hiding the parsley hands this time. Pay no attention to my messy pantry.

And the rolls.Oh boy.

The most beautiful turkey (can turkeys be beautiful?) I have ever seen. And pretty darn tasty.

He was pretty proud of himself. Even though he wore a pink glove.

Alex's plate. :)

And a few hours later....apple pie. mmmmm. Pumpkin too. Just didn't get around to taking a picture of it.

Overall it was a really great Thanksgiving. I had a blast preparing dinner for my Grandparents- who I don't see that often and never, ever cook for. And Alex had a lot of fun frying a turkey for the first time. Thankfully my Grandpa has fried a few in his day so he was able to show Alex the ropes.
I loved not having to think about anything turkey as that is (was) my least favorite part of preparing the dinner.
We decided that he will take care of Mr. (Mrs.?- sad) turkey from here on out and I will do all the rest- which I do enjoy by the way...
