A stuffed, browned, and resting turkey. Poor thing already put in a 7 hr. day.
Ashley filling the relish trays. Olives and pickles galore.
Ready & waiting.
Barbara helping toss the pomegranate romaine salad. The homemade dressing is my favorite! Plus it has crispy bacon in it, what's not to love?
Ashley taking a photo of Derrick carving the turkey. Lots of cameras were snapping. Obviously, it's a very famous turkey.
Voila! I think it's done.
Peeking in on the potato masher. Gotta keep a close eye on her.
Meanwhile.... as all that work was taking place in the kitchen.... some folks were enjoying the Wii. Here Alex just knocked Ethan off the tall cliff into the water below by beating him in a sword fight. Ethan doesn't look impressed.
Alex & Ashley are playing speed slicing (one of my favorites!). Everyone waiting for food also enjoyed Wii bowling, which I love.
We're finally ready to sit. The table looks lovely, but in this picture my mother's cuteness steals the show.
