Thanksgiving Festivities and Other Stuff

(Lisa's family)

This Tuesday, the remainder of Lisa's family (read: Lisa's mom and sister) drove out here from California. As aforementioned, her dad has been fixing her cousin's roof up in Salt Lake, so for Thanksgiving we had turkey, family, and all the trimmings, followed by a few bites and pie (and, not of...ask Lisa for an explanation) at another cousin's place.

Clockwise spiral: Olives, rolls, coleslaw, turkey, cranberry sauce,
almonds, candied yams, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole,
broccoli, stuffing, gravy, butter, Martinelli's, salt and pepper

(Feasting frenzy)

Lisa also had the opportunity to try on several wedding gowns. If some loyal reader is willing to donate $900, please contact us to make a bride's dream come true...or they can reimburse me for my much cheaper suit I bought the same week...

(Evidence of her meager income: a diet of ice cubes)

We also had some photos taken for wedding invitations. All credit for the shots goes to Lisa's sister, Morgan, along with the probable wrinkle-removal and other modifications she'll do in PhotoShop. Remind me to make her promise to leave my head in, though...

Last but not least, below are some of our favorites. Happy Thanksgiving (and Black Friday) to all!
