Thanksgiving Turkeys

You may remember last year's Pablo el Pavo, from Mexico. This year, Tammy the Turkey spent the morning at the spa, and came out nice and juicy! I forgot to take an "after" picture though!

Another "turkey" joined us for dinner this year. Some friends got together at my house this year, including this little guy. He kept us all pretty entertained for the afternoon. He loved getting zerberts, and bent almost completely backwards! It was fun to hear his belly laughs.
His mommy & I went shopping at 9pm at the outlets & found some great sales--the lines weren't even bad yet. And it certainly beat waking up early to go on Friday!

3 Girls & A Dog

No, "3 Girls & A Dog" is not a remake of an '80s' movie...it's who I've been helping out lately. I've been spending a few nights a week with three high school girls and their dog. Their younger sister is very sick and is often in the hospital. Mom stays with the younger sister in St. Louis, and when Dad is there also, I stay with the older three girls. It's been fun getting to know them--and nice to have people to cook dinner for! I'm getting used to band practice, football schedules, soccer practices & youth retreats. Please pray for me as I help out this family, and for the family as they go through this hard time. Thanks!!
