mike and becky joined us for dinner. we said grace outside around the indian grindstone. such a cool tradition. and then took pictures.
bob bought the turkey at the local grocery store and for $10 more they cooked it for us. now that's a deal. we had fresh cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, stuffing and green beans.
and for dessert...
bobby made 2 pies. yes, you read that right, bobby. he was looking at one of my cooking magazines and wanted to take on the challenge of making the pies. and he did an amazing job. they were outstanding and no one complained (or maybe noticed) that they were lightened up versions. they were good and that's all that mattered. i'll get better pictures and give you the links in a later post. totally worth sharing.
friday i started my one mile a day challenge. trying to get in one mile from thanksgiving (or the day after) until new year's day.
we had a wine tasting in the new wine barn.
checking out the cabernet for this year. still very young but so far, so good.
and then baby anthony showed up and it was all about oohing and ahhing. hugging and cuddling. we love babies.
sunday we did one last run. then bobby took the boys shooting (glad i was not there to witness it). he said they did great. must be from all of that video game playing. and mike, who is a police officer, was there to keep everyone in check and using proper gun safety rules. thank you for that.
we had one last toast to the peaceful and relaxing days we spent here.
then we took some family photos and headed home.
thank you to everyone who made this the perfect weekend.
