A Good day!
Our day turned out to be a real success and a great family time for us all.( Everyone was here except Marc, my SIL-He's a truck driver and couldn't make it home! :( We missed you, Marc. )
Our turkey was ready about 2:00 and we managed to bring it all together by about 2:30.
In spite of all my misgivings about the banana pudding everyone said it was the best ever!! Yes- I have to say -it sure looked pretty!
Here's that big ole turkey! (19 + pounds) ...You should have heard me grumbling during the stuffing and cooking of this big guy! Once again I said, "I will NEVER cook a turkey this big again!" ....and..."This is the last time I'm doing a big holiday meal like this!" ( I've said this before, of course!) :)
But then I realize it's all worth it when the turkey comes out of the overn looking like this!
~~I forgot to take pics of my Harvest Loaf and my Cranberry Salad~~
We had to serve buffet style, with so much food and so many of us! Here is a pic of some of the family at the serving table.
My daughters and 2 of my Grands-Zach and Alli.

One of the best parts of the day is the chit-chat after dinner-and lingering with dessert and coffee!
These photos are of the rest of us!
My son, Chris, my daughter Tammy and her son Zach-and Tammy and her husband, Terry, Daughter Tina and her daughter, Alli.-Charles and me.
I'm thankful for my family.
