Thanksgiving for real

The Netz-Lafitte's were "guests" at this years Thanksgiving dinner. Our lovely hostesses were Casuree and Nate and Uncle Jill and Boyd. We got to travel to Casuree and Nate's beautiful new house for dinner.

Unfortunately, we ran into some holiday traffic congestion in Henefer.
Only in Henefer! (and sometimes Morgan)
Here we see Uncle Boyd/master electric knife operator doing one heck of a number on the turkey.
Yo Bob was on hand just in case a mashed potato or gravy emergency broke out (he now has mad mashed potato and gravy skillz--see previous post)
Casuree did a wonderful job impressing us with her Rachel Rae cooking. She got a little fancy-pants on us with her mashed potatoes and green beans. She did such a good job that Pancho over-ate and look what happened ( I don't think he was wearing his Thanksgiving eating pants).
The guys made sure we didn't miss the big game (and by big game I mean some football game between a couple of football teams who were playing a football game- I'm such a girl)
After dinner Casuree, our craft administrator, showed us how she can turn this....
and this....
and these....and a couple of these....with a little bit of this...
and some of this.....
with some supervision from these guys.....
Can turn into these super adorable sports bobble-headsHere's Lydon representing the Patriot's (duh)
Aaron representing the Cowboys (NOT THE COLTS!!)
Brennon representing the Bronco's
Chaston representing the Steelers (Holy cheezeball! No wonder this kid is in the top two for the story telling contest for the 1st grade)
Here's Jason representing the Vikings
And the lovely Sarah representing the Eagles.
Even Grandpa Bob got in on the bobble head action. Do I get extra bonus points for naming all those football teams instead of referring to them as "the team with the horse, that other team with a horse, the team with the bird and the team with the big blond guy wearing the hat with the horns"?
After bobble-heading, our co-craft-coordinator, Uncle Jill, hooked the kidses up with this awesome little food goody...



Is there any doubt that this turkey....

who belongs to this turkey....

would ultimately do this to his turkey?

NOPE!!

Thanks Casuree and Nate for being the best-est Thanksgiving hostesses. We had such a good time that Aaron was out cold before we even left your driveway. We should get together again---say, sometime around the 24th?

It's the Raiders not the Steelers. Don't float your sports boat to soon!

Looks like you all had a good time. You'll have to show me how to make those cute little turkeys. It would be fun to do that will all the girls next year.
