I'm late in posting this but am back dating it to put it in proper sequence. For Thanksgiving this year J.R. and his grandson (Calvin) came up from Yakima and Jeff came over from Renton.
I cooked a full meal deal with turkey, dressing, gravy, mashed potatoes, yam casserole, 2-berry salad, rolls, etc. There were plenty of left overs for several meals... including a big batch of soup and lots of sandwiches.
J.R. is always handy to have around because he's the mechanic of the family and Max loves having him work on the cars. Jeff is our carpenter handyman and we can always find odd jobs for him. They're both good workers and happy to help, which we appreciate!
My brother and his wife (Clair and Beverly) will be here for Christmas.
