This FINALLY worked!
We got together at my mom's for Thanksgiving. My m-i-l made the pumpkin and apple pies, my s-i-l made the sweet potatoes, I did the mashed potatoes. Once we all got there, we helped my mom in the kitchen. Eileen (m-i-l) and Doreen (s-i-l) helped move the turkey from the roasting pan to the platter (with my mom directing!)
Tucker was really proud of the centerpiece he made
Cassandra helped by taking the rolls out of the oven
After all the activity in the kitchen, we finally sat down to eat! (even Tucker!)
Four turkeys holding turkeys (hee hee--sorry, I couldn't resist!) these are the Thanksgiving crafts Tucker and I made!
And finally...our mothers enjoy their usual holiday bottle of wine
The funny thing about this this year was that after we had cleared the table and sat down to play cards, my mom was looking for the bottle of wine for a refill and Eileen pulled it out from behind her!
