Turkey Day

The twins got their H1N1 booster shots on Wednesday. Now, all we have left to fully vaccinate is Jenna. Woo hoo!

We cajun fried a turkey for Thanksgiving again this year. And by "we", I mean Chris and our good friend David. And by "a turkey", I mean two turkeys and six chickens. We eat one and freeze the rest for future fantastic meals. Chris is nearly an expert turkey fryer--the only reason I don't call him an out-and-out expert is because he's under 40 years old still and I think that's too young to be an expert at anything. Despite the fact that he's been cajun injecting and frying turkeys longer than Emeril Lagasse.

All in all, it was a great day, and we feel blessed that each of us had a healthy and happy Thanksgiving. Our good friend Alexa Felix, who has SMA type 1 and just turned two years old this month, spent the holiday in the hospital with a respiratory infection, so all our prayers are turned in their direction until Alexa gets better.


  1. Yum! I also must add what a nice looking lawn you have in the grow greener grass than we do in Washington!

  2. Thanks! Yes, that's the winter lawn. We seed it in October and it takes about 3 weeks to look awesome. The winter grass dies in late spring, and the summer grass isn't nearly as prett and soft!
