Thanksgiving

We got to host Thanksgiving this year because Greg's parents decided to go on a cruise instead.

And we loved it!

We ended up with 27 people, including us, Paul & Staci, Kent & Jessica, Tanya & David, David's parents, and David's sister.  And all of the kids that go with those families.

It was fun, and we had so much food!

Parker was so proud of himself.  He ate 2 turkey hearts and a liver.  He said they were good.
 Yep, we can all fit!
 Some more seating...
 This picture does not really do justice to the food.  2 turkeys (smoked and regular), sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, green beans, macaroni & cheese, raw veggies, hors d'oeuvres, raspberry pretzel salad, 2 types of jello, cranberries, 2 green salads, and rolls.

Thanksgiving would not be Thanksgiving without "hors d'oeuvres."  They are a Spencer tradition.  They are yummy little bites made from cream cheese, salsa, and olives rolled up in a tortilla.  The name of this dish is simply "hors d'oeuvres" and they are tasty.


 Ellie ate a roll for Thanksgiving dinner and then said she was full.
 Emily gave me the cheesiest-eyes-closed grin.  Super cute!
 Kyralyn and Andrew are never far apart.
 Ariana and Denver had some fun playing together.

 Parker could hardly wait for us to get the dishes done and the kitchen in some semblence of order before having pie.  I think he asked us every 2 minutes if it was pie time yet.

Staci made lemon meringue and Tanya brought a Sister Kirkland apple pie, and we made the rest (except for the pumpkin, which was also made by Sister Kirkland).  We had banana cream, coconut cream, blueberry, cherry, peach, and pumpkin.  Greg is quite an impressive pie maker!
 Lynlee tried apple and pumpkin and liked the pumpkin better.
 Ellie loves her vanilla ice cream!
Heather:  "Ellie, let me take a picture of your face as you eat ice cream."
Ellie:  {giggling and running away} NO!

Good thing Dallin has great legs to hide behind.
