Random stuff and our visit with the grands...

Feels good to post so soon after posting!
Thanksgiving was great! The turkey turned out delicious although the rub was a bit spicy. I have a different rub I'll use next year since 90% of our guests are over the age of 80.

Looks a bit spicy huh? But it was so yummy!!
My cranberry salad turned out amazing!

I wanted to get a picture of everyone at the table but it was too difficult since I didn't have everything set up and old people are impatient big time!

Paul and I went to visit the grands two weekends ago. Just a visit. I took them their Minion hats I made. They LOVED them!

Playing a game of Life. Notice the concentration and the fact that it takes 3 guys to make a move!
One of the greatest pleasures I've experienced lately is Emmy wanted to learn how to knit! Jessie asked if I'd like to go see a knitting store they have just down the street. That was really nice of her to think of me knowing how much I love to knit. So, Jessie, Emmy and I went. Emmy fell in love with some yarn and really wanted to learn how to knit. She was so enthusiastic and such a quick learner!!

Notice the hat?
Ta-Da!! Emmy knitted this all by herself! I'm so proud of her!
We all went to a park and found a couple of geocaches. It was a lot of fun. Winston and Lucy were with us and Winston was surprisingly sprite. Didn't have to carry him at all. He did really good.

Emmy taught me how to play Mancala. Very interesting.
We had a great time. So sad to leave except this time we know we'll be seeing them for Sue's party in December! Yay!

As always...
