A Smorgasborg of Ella






We had a great Thanksgiving. Janet, Brad and Alisha, Ryan, Ella and I celebrated together. I made my first turkey, and I was fairly pleased with the results. I found an Ina Garten recipe that uses a turkey breast instead of the whole turkey. Plenty if you are having a small gathering, and everyone gets white meat!

On Friday I had to work, but had a break between patients in the morning, so I stopped at Smith's Market Place to pick a few things up. It was crazy; packed with people, long long lines, free donuts, and socks that were 50% off. I kept thinking, "If it's this crazy at the grocery store, what does Target or Wal-Mart look like?" Maybe next year I'll find out.

Congrats on the turkey, little mother. We enjoyed a delicious turkey at Sandie's. I think it was her first one also. Sorry I missed your visit last night. I don't hear the phone if its not right beside me. Laura

Oh, I just laughing my head off at baby Ella in the big brown bowl. That is so funny! She really looks like you as a baby, Al. So pretty.

Oh, dag nabit. I wish there was an edit your comment button. Is there? What I meant to say was "I'm just laughing my head off"
