well, I guess it's time to start posting again. It has been a while so there's a lot to catch up on. We're slowly digging ourselves out of this nightmare of a year, with all the trauma and turmoil. (Losing the kids, tax audit, home break-in, among other things that I choose not to discuss here). I can't wait to start a new year in a few weeks.

On a more positive note, I had half my family in town for Thanksgiving! it was very fun, and hopefully I wasn't too stressed about it. Below is a picture of our fancy feast.

and my turkey turned out so yummy! I had a citrus grill rub on it (Thanks Meag for sending it!), and it was perfectly browned, yet still moist. yum.

Plus, beforehand we had a whole table full of appetizers, including Bethaney's yummy deviled eggs and Ashley's yummy red pepper salsa. (You should definitely find the recipe for that, Ashley!)

Anyway, now we're gearing up for Christmas. We've invited Ron's family to come to Portland. We're not sure if they can come yet, but it would be good to see them again.

Hey there lady! I am so glad that you are posting again. So, as of now, we ARE coming up for Christmas. It could change at the last minute but as of now, we are coming. I can't wait to see you all again. You are such a good host and always think of fun things to do with the time. I just had my two brothers and wife her for Thanksgiving and i am still trying to recover. It is stressful and I am grateful that you offered to have us come. I really hope we can. Take care and I hope this year is better for you as well.
