And it's finally time for some shut eye before finishing up in the morning! ZZZZZzzzzzZZZZZzzzzzz
I woke up bright and early to finish preparing the rest of the side dishes for our big dinner. The ladies in the family set up all the appetizers on the kitchen table.
My girls were hungry and thirsty...they dug right in
The girls patiently waited at the front door for our family to arrive
Bill fried up our turkey
Just look at this big moist Turkey with crispy skin!
While the ladies helped me finish up the rest of the meal.
