The week before Thanksgiving, Aunt Katie came to visit since she had a job interview in Irving. She got the job! So she is going to be a close neighbor.I have been waiting for Helaman to upload his phone pics to post the Thanksgiving pictures but I may as well just write about it in the meantime. It was great! The day before we left for Houston, Helaman decided he wanted to smoke a turkey this year. So he went to the store and bought a smoker. The next day we drove to Houston with it still boxed up in the car. He got up early to put it in the smoker, and by Thanksgiving afternoon it was a beaut, and one of the best tasting turkeys I've tasted. Thanks H! We also had fun with the fam making a 4 course pizza meal together, hanging out at the park, sharing our talents during Variety Night and admiring new baby Clark.
I did not get into Black Friday this year. Like last year, I felt like the retailers didn't really put forth the doorbusters and loss leaders that I rely on for a great early morning shopping outing. Maybe next year!
Charlotte had a ton of fun with her Grandma B. Here they are in coordinating outfits. Grandma made the dress.
