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.
