Our Thanksgiving

It was great. It started with Andi having her little Thanksgiving feast and presentation at her preschool.

Cory made hor d'ouvres (horsey doovers) at 12noon for a little snack. Then we went on a walk to the park down the street. It was beautiful weather. No sweatshirt needed!

Cory decided to be funny and climb up the play structure. He kinda got stuck trying to swing his leg over. I think he realized he's not as agile as he used to be. I guess no more acrobatics for him!

How many people can fit on a slide?

Since we stayed home for Thanksgiving this year, we invited another "Family-less" family over from our ward. They're great friends of ours and their 3 girls are the same ages as our older 3.
Cory and I cooked the turkey, apple sausage dressing (bad recipe), traditionas dressing (good recipe), pumpking pie, carmel apple cream cheese pie, corn, and the mashed potatoes and gravy. I must say... it was DELICIOUS for our first time ever Thanksgiving dinner! Angie and Ric brought over yams, green bean casserole (a classic) and banana cream pie. We then followed the evening up with some guitar hero. Over all, it was a great day.

Had to get a picture of this tree on our walk. So vibrant!
