The boys played.
Jasper got parked on the kitchen counter in a bumbo while we peeled, chopped, boiled, and baked.
Doesn't look like this should have taken hours of preparation but it did. Anyway I had the help of my daughters and we enjoyed the process. The food was yummy. Traditional Thanksgiving fare is always a treat.
Resting after eating.
A few years ago we started the tradition of making a craft after the Thanksgiving meal. They guys are watching football and the girls are being crafty. This year it was cute little half-pint jars of french pears sauce that we made and decorated for gift giving.
The finished product.
On Friday I took the girls to a Christmas Bazaar followed by lunch at a neat place we discovered in Umpqua called the Lighthouse Bakery. We had a good time and left the big boys at home.
