For the Love of...Family Gatherings

For The Love Of...

Thursday was Thanksgiving here in the United States. We were unsure of how many days Jake would have off from work so we figured we'd have it at our house and invite Jake's dad and aunt & uncle, who live just 5 hours away. In Wyoming time 5 hours is practically next door! OK, maybe around the corner. ;)

They came out Wednesday night and brought some goodies with them. Visit Jake's blog to see all the fabulous food we made.

Sitting down for our feast.

The most tender delicious turkey ever! Here's the recipe.

Relaxing while Jake cut up the turkey.

Did you notice the dog under the table in the above picture? That's Nutmeg, Bert & Leigh's dog. Here's Lotte & Lady (Jack's dog) just outside of the kitchen looking pathetic and hoping for some scraps.

And Lady, Festus, and Cord (pushing the limit laying just inside the kitchen).

5 people and 5 dogs, lots of yummy food & drink, and fabulous company!

And now it's time for you to link up with one of your favorite recent family gatherings. Grab a button from the right sidebar, write about your family gathering, & come back to link up. If you have problems linking up please let me know and I will help out. The linky will be open until Monday at midnight (Mountain Time).

Next week's theme is CRAFTING!

Thanks for playing! :)

I love how the dogs are pushing their luck by inching into the kitchen. That's exactly what happens here! (And probably everywhere else, I'm sure!) Happy Late Thanksgiving to you and yours!
