Happy Thanksgiving

We celebrated Thanksgiving day very casually, just the three of us. We all got to sleep in and relax, and then we went for a drive up the canyon. It was raining everywhere, but miraculously as soon as we reached the spot where we wanted to go on a little hike, it wasn't raining! We had a scenic little stroll in the snow. When we got in the car and started driving, we were immediately in the rain again.

Instead of turkey, I made a quiche using my mom's fantastic recipe. And some apple pie. Jewell at a croissant and a heap of Wheat Thins. My little carb-lover.

But we did eat a bunch of turkey, like everyone else. Our Thanksgiving really happened last Sunday, when Trevor and Amanda came to visit and be part of the big feast held at her grandparent's house here in Selah. Talk about a buffet! And lots of people. Yet all Jewell ate was a muffin. Typical. But we feasted and Jewell had a great time playing with all the kids there. Trevor and Travis went skiing (some newly fallen snow) on Saturday, and we all rough-housed in the living room (and hugged)...

Also, I just finished painting this little wooden cradle I found for Jewell at an antique store in Seattle. I have a new-found love for spray paint!

looks like fun! Great photos, and the food looks great. I thought I was going to cook my first turkey this year, but then let my dad do it instead. It was delicious! My parents came to my place this year, so I did get to host.
