Ho Ho Turkey Day

It was Cassandra who first started calling this holiday "Ho Ho Turkey Day". Well Ho Ho Turkey Day has come and gone, we made some new memories and relived some old ones as well. We were able to spend some good times with friends and family. Dean taught us the meaning of life when we watched the classic black and white film "The Day The Earth Stood Still". We are however, still wondering what "Gort Klaatu barada nikto" means. If you figure it out let me know. Dione and I had a fun shopping trip to the new boutique store in the Cache Valley Mall. That is a fun place. Chet became a fan of Madden 09. Bob and Cassandra met us for lunch on Friday while poor Maggie and Sammy had to wait in the car. My poor grandawggs! Monday is just around the corner...
I am gearing up for pie night and had to audition
a new possible desert. Mmmm...
red velvet cake is a winner. See you there!!!

Our "tight" friend Gavin came up to spend some
quality time with the family. We watched
Claim (again) and dressed up Izzy (again).
Grandpa Max is supposed to be carving the turkey
not eating it.

Skyler is thoroughly engrossed in his nephew Max's
toy. It's not rocket science Skyler you can do it.

Carrie (aka the boat bimbo) and her beautiful baby
boy Max. Together with husband Ryan,
they flew in from Kentucky for the holiday!
Baby Max was so much fun to photograph, I took
so many more pictures of him than anyone else.
Check out his beautiful brown eyes. He's a cutie.

Chet has his Aunt Sheri wrapped around his little finger,
he was the only one to receive the special solid
chocolate turkey.
My brother Blair and his adorable daughter Katie
with Sweet Dee.

Dean and I smiling...

Announcement from the Garlick Press

Here we go...
My girls will claim that I am just copying them with one more thing. This time it's a blog of my own. They are so witty and fun I could never attain their level of cleverness! For my --th birthday (I'll never tell) I received a new Nikon D60... yet another item of copying. I am learning how to take real photographs for the first time in my life. I am loving it so far. So here is a couple samples of my photographic prowess.

Cassandra loving the doodle.

Dione is always willing to play along.

Chet is the most unhappy about the new camera...

please no more pics Mom.
