We were pretty excited to have the chance to host Thanksgiving in our new spacious kitchen this year! And having the weather be sunny and warm made the day all the more fun!
The kids and Corey (with the help of Niki and Charlie) made their traditional gingerbread turkey
Okay, maybe Charlie didn't help that much if he wasn't in the final picture!
So proud of their work... which was promptly eaten within the next 30 minutes!
Niki and I had thanksgiving themed Moscow Mules!
Remember the warm weather I mentioned?
We had appetizers on the deck with the turkey cooked on the grill!
Corey was the Turkey man --- a role he has embraced over the last few years - he did learn from a master!
And I am grateful he is taking the time to pass along his secrets to his Godson!
Wow - that looks delicious!
carving up the bird!
Look at all that space!
This kitchen worked great for the holiday - plenty of room to cook and eat and spread out!
The second half of the weekend was spent celebrating this dude!
We had a great time celebrating Eric's 40th and a Badger win!
Plenty of family and friends at Buck's Bar in Mt. Horeb ---
they pour the drinks strong there ....
John and I might have had more fun than others --- gotta love those party animal in-laws!
