|A lot of the kids playing with legos on Thanksgiving. There are a whole lot more kids in the family.|
We had a great Thanksgiving this year and enjoyed spending time with family. We made dinner at our house that included a Tur-Duc-Hen...which is a de-boned chicken stuffed in a de-boned duck stuffed in a de-boned turkey. It was our first year trying it and it was really good. I got it from The Cajun Grocer and they do a great job of creating and stuffing it. We also had a turkey and a ham...for our less daring relatives. Everyone brought great food for sharing and we were all stuffed at the end of the night.

Jerry had to work on Friday and when he got off work we all packed into the car for a long drive to Kentucky to see my dad and his family. My grandparents are 92 and 87 and they have never met Hope. I wanted them to meet her, but I sure did not enjoy the drive. Over 8 hours each way with 4 kids in the car is NOT fun. I really tried, but about the millionth time I was asked if we were there yet...ughhh...I had reached my limit. Oh well...it's not like we do it all the time. It was the first real trip we have made since Hope was born, so I guess I can go another 2 years before we make another long trip.
