Norman Rockwell Thanksgiving

The girls and I couldn't wait to cook Thanksgiving dinner together this year. We sent the boys out to do some skeet shooting, as it turns out Chet is pretty good with a gun. We basted our little bird all morning and the result was delicious and beautiful.
Taking a page from a traditional Normal Rockwell painting, I loved bringing the turkey to the table to be carved.
Cassandra woke up ready to cook.

It was really fun to have Rod and Kathi and their sons Jared and Brandon join us for the meal.

After dinner entertainment...making the napkin ring into a monocle.

I wonder what Maggie is thinking while sticking her nose out an open window.

Chet waiting for his turn to play Rock like a rockstar!

Dean missed his career...should have been a rock star.

Jared taking his turn.

Rod (aka Steven Spielberg) has a try at the drums.

And the family dinner wouldn't be complete without the girls singing and playing the piano together. This time it was "Breath of Heaven". Simply beautiful...
Yes, I realize Thanksgiving was a few weeks ago...just trying to catch up! I hope you all had a Happy Ho Ho Turkey day.
