Happy Thanksgiving

Lonn, Katie, Laci and I served up a delicious Thanksgiving meal this afternoon.  We had a very enjoyable morning cooking, laughing, teasing and playing with little Ms. Lora.  We missed the presence of LoraLee immensely. 

Nat and LoraThis family doesn’t like turkey—so we decided cooking a turkey was not an unbreakable rule—we cooked beef tenderloins and oh, my were they ever delicious.  We cooked one outside on the grill and one in the oven.  Mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, jello salads, lettuce salad, rolls—the list goes on and on!  Chocolate cake and pumpkin pie for dessert—way too much food but oh so good!!  I headed over to Lonn’s earlier in the morning and Michael went to town and retrieved Nat for the celebration.  We were joined by friends of Katie and Michael’s—Becky, David and Phillip plus Trey, a friend of John and Laci’s from the USAF base in Great Falls.

There were seven dogs belonging to various friends and family at Lonn’s and Emmi doesn’t socialize well in groups Smileso she remained at home.  We went for a long walk while waiting for Michael to come home after taking Nat back to town.  Our temps are weird—45 degrees today so much of our snow is gone to be replace by mud!

Michael and I are blessed to have the family and friends we do—Happy Thanksgiving to all!

All the other photos I took today disappeared—my replacement Canon camera kept asking me to reset the date and time so I did—all the photos taken before I performed that little function simply disappeared—dang it!  (sorry John and Laci—the ones I took of you guys were great!)


  1. Looks like you had a great time. I am happy for you!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you all! are most fortunate to have such a beautiful family!

  3. Sounds like a wonderful family day with that sweet little addition:) The first holiday is always the hardest when a seat is left empty. Glad you could all be together for support. Beef tenderloins sound great!!

  4. A lovely day with family and friends - sounds wonderful! Bummer about the photos :-( I'm sure you are very popular with the wild turkeys in the area - beef tenderloin on the grill sounds perfect!

  5. Some of my best ever pictures have met the same fate. Oh well, I still have them on my internal memory, but even that is getting a little flaky as I get older! ;)

  6. Great pic of Nat and Ms. Lora! Sounds like a fabulous Thanksgiving Dinner - can't believe you guys don't like Turkey!!
