Thanksgiving Day

Delightful Thanksgiving Day.

Darlene and Tamara brought Mary Alice on Wednesday evening and then went to Alison's for the evening.

Sherrie was busy all week preparing for the meal, including getting up at 5:00 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day to put the turkey in the oven.
We had a huge rainstorm on Wednesday and again on Thursday and set a weather record for consecutive days of rainfall. Course it still wasn't very much , but by Vegas standards, it was a lot. Unfortunately we have a leak in Sherrie's studio back behind the heavy file cabinets.
As soon as the guests (Darlene and Tamara, Alison and her husband, Bill, and their little girl, Ellie, and Bill's parents and brother) arrived, then it was time to eat.
Thanksgiving dinner began around noon and featured the traditional "fixin's": mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet potatoes, corn, beans, rolls, marshmallow salad, turkey, and, or course, pies...lots and lots of pies.

Friday afternoon Rebecca called and announced that the film that she just completed at BYU has been selected for the Sundance Film Festival next January. CONGRATULATIONS! Sherrie did the costumes so she is doubly excited.
