Beverly and James
Mike, Dennise, and Shelbi (Brittani didn't come. She didn't want to leave her dogs.)
Cody (observing No Shave November)
Gak! My son is too tall for me to bunny ears any more! (Hey, at least he come by it honest.)
Artex got in on the festivities, too.
At my house, we had an early Christmas miracle: Squeaky let Jesse get on the bed with her!
Rylea stuck with napping on the love seat.
I didn't take pictures of the food. It looks pretty much the same as it did last year, and the year before, and the year before...Although Cody wanted to have a Cajun Thanksgiving, so we did have gumbo and meat pies, in addition to the turkey, sweet potatoes, etc, etc...
I had a bit of a mishap with the pumpkin pie. The crust stuck to the pie shield-- probably from the filling overflowing just a little bit-- and it broke when I took the shield off.
So, I thought, by golly, if I'm going to go to all the trouble to find my fancy pie plate and dig it out and wash it up, then by golly, I'm going to have a nice looking pie to put into it.
So I made another one.
It turned out much better.
After dinner, I came home and watched the Cowboys defeat the Dolphins on a last second, come from behind field goal. Then I watched the Longhorns defeat the Aggies on a last second, come from behind field goal.
My old heart can't take this kind of stress any more. I'm giving up football.
At least until tomorrow.
