thankfully, on wednesday night, my brother (oj) called to say that his boss had been roasting turkeys all day for his employees. thus, oj told me to make room in the refrigerator for a turkey and...
what a nice surprise, huh???
so, i made mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, fried apples and corn, yeast rolls, and baked beans (chico's favorite;). i bought a pecan pie and a pumpkin pie. a delicious, afternoon, thanksgiving meal was served at 2 sharp here on the lane. as it turned out, i was extremely grateful not to have to leave the house at all.
yesterday was a really good day...
and interesting entertainment:b
after eating, my brother and i watched the alvin and the chipmunks movie that came out last Christmas. it was pretty cute:)
and, while we were watching the movie...
katherine and chico built and decorated a gingerbread house i had bought for them.
they were so proud of their sweet decorating skills that they brought their gingerbread boy and girl in to show us.
(the gingerbread boy???)
(itsy bitsy, teensy weensy, yellow ploka dot bikini???)
however, while they were away from the house they'd just erected and decorated, Maisey (our BIG black cat) decided to check out their handy work. when she did, the whole house collapsed!!!
(the culprit, maisey;)
such is life on the lane:P
how was your day???
love and blessings,
