Andrea over at the fishbowl is hosting a photo challenge today – post one picture an hour between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m., showing what you’re up to on this Thanksgiving Monday. I’ll be updating this post throughout the day with new photos.
Our big dinner with family was yesterday – I hosted and made my first ever turkey. It went well and everything was delicious and there were two kinds of super yummy pie, so that’s a big success.
Today is all about relaxing, playing, and eating leftovers.
9 a.m. – Sir Monkeypants having coffee and leftover apple cream pie for breakfast. We’ve already been up for three hours but due to last night’s dinner felt no need to eat before now.
10 a.m. – Everyone had a turn at Wii Fit – even Little Miss Sunshine. Notice Gal Smiley in the background applying glow-in-the-dark toenail polish.
11 a.m. – Having a Super Snack (several snack items mixed in a bowl), while playing Lego.
12 p.m. – Planting tulip and daffodil bulbs – and swearing a lot. Little buggers.
1 p.m. – Leftovers for lunch! Turkey sandwich, sugar snap peas, sweet potatoes in orange sauce (a family tradition).
2 p.m. – Weeding the lawn while the kids play hide and seek. I swear for Halloween I need only make children walk through our backyard for a major scare.
3 p.m. – Little hands washing the car.
4 p.m. – Watering the garden. I don’t like to brag, but this purple aster has about 1000 blooms on it thanks to my complete and total neglect.
5 p.m. – Ah yes, the traditional Thanksgiving barbeque. The whole street was outside – it was like a huge party.
6 p.m. – Giving Little Miss Sunshine a bath.

These are great! Looks like you had a nice holiday Monday; good mix of fun and productivity. Your flowers are lovely.
I hope your tulips work out better than mine did. I planted mine on Saturday and when I went outside two hours later, there were nice round, squirrel-dug holes where each one had been.
And I think neglecting plants makes them stronger. You don’t want wimpy plants that expect to be watered, do you? 🙂
Great photos! Hmm..apple cream pie!
LOVE this series and the descriptions that go with. Great pics and perspectives.
These are fabulous!
Nice pictures! And the idea of a neighbourhood Thanksgiving bbq is all kinds of awesome. If I had accepted Andrea’s photo challenge, my pictures would have all been of me reading a novel: at the breakfast table, at the playground with Rae, on the front steps of the house studiously ignoring the leaves that need to be raked and the lawn that needs to be mowed.
