COOK(e) BIRD




Our names were very fitting for our Thanksgiving gathering! Cook Bird, Add-a-berry (Atteberry), and eaT 'im! HAHAHA. Yes, we were joined by Sarah & Eric, Chris & Kirsten, and Tim Lindseth at the home of my parents (who are with Christy in Seattle). We had fun. All the cooking went pretty smoothly, and tasted very good! Sarah and I were the main cooks, and found working it all out with two babies who need nursing and other mommy attentions to be quite a challenge! I decided to start a family tradition this year. I made a Thanksgiving banner which we will add to each year! I had everyone sign it and write something they are thankful for. Meadow and Logan made handprint turkeys on it and I will add an iron-on transfer of our group photo. As the years go by it will be fun to see who we gathered with and what they wrote! This idea came to me last night so I was up till 2 AM getting it ready! I'll post a picture of it once I get the picture on. Here's a pic of us making it.

Very funny, what would you have called me if I had made it over? Sorry to have missed you all, by the way, I ended up having SO MUCH FUN with my family that I just stayed with them the whole evening. Glad you had a good day, too. :)

We had a very nice time down here with Christy and friends in her new condo which is really nice. We had a full-on thanksgiving dinner! We have been working non-stop moving and setting up as well as finishing the Bellewood. One more trip to Bellevue should do it. Glad you guys had fun too.

Very clever with the name comments! It was such a great time. Maybe we'll be able to spend next Thanksgiving together too!
Caren did a great job cooking the "Bird."
