"I'm dreaming of a white 'Thanksgiving'"Yeah aren't we all:-)

Hmmm, wonder how soon we can start nibbling on these new doggie beds SHE made us without being sent back to the pound?!?

Please, please, please can't we have some of that big bird in the oven?

Happy Thanksgiving!

There were wonderful smells all day (well almost all day). It started with those not so pleasant cleaning smells, and doggie shampoo smells but it rapidly improved from there. He wrestled with a big bird, looked good right out of the fridge to me, but he soaked it and rubbed it and popped it in the oven. She mixed flour and this lovely smelling buttery stuff and mixed meat of her own into meat pies. That went into the oven too and a bit later the turkey started smelling and all was good:-) People started arriving next. Grizzley just growled a little bit at them this time and then he was happy to receive greetings too. They brought lovely smelling dishes as well and we had quite a full house. We finally got a bit of the lovely smelling stuff once everyone started to leave. There are distinct benefits to being hosts in Alaska...SHE believes and while maybe the cleaning isn't one of them, the fact that you don't have to go out at night and warm up the car to go home is a big one! SHE even took advantage to wear a skirt (the first time since August:-)
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving too!
(once again SHE forgot to take pictures - but we'll post some of the lovely frozen landscape...maybe we'll include the new truck too) Yes they finally broke down and bought one (after the other car acted up it seemed like an intelligent idea...and as it officially broke down on the way to another friend's Thanksgiving dinner they were happy to have another vehicle sitting at home when they were dropped off later that evening) Now the car is sitting stranded at the garage - fixed but frozen until the garage plugs it in Monday and just maybe the battery will work again!)
