Prelude to 27: Thanksgiving

Arriving home is always a nice feeling. Arriving home to friends and family is even better.
Me and my brother and my suddenly camera-shy cousin
But before I go to grandma's house, I need to cook cakeballs. Quick: Assemble a cakeball making team of wonderful people ASAP!!!
red velvet cake with creme frosting, white chocolate coating, chocolate sprinkle: if sugar can kill, were dying tonite

Coolest crew ever!
Oh, wait, I need to jump in a picture and pretend to be cooking as well

Okay, cool. Cakeballs made. Let's go to grandma's!
The Granddaughters

Prelude to 27: Part 3

Thanksgiving's Eve 11

Driving 7 hours to Aletheia Springs without checking on the amount of my anti-freeze proved to be folly. That was an interesting start to an all too short day, to say the least. Car problem notwithstanding ( or is it "withstanding"...never did understand that word), we ventured to the Mitchel's house. (Fantastic people live in that place.)  So, we got there, and it's Colt's Birthday, that was a great time to be there. We talked, laughed, play a few rounds of Clue and eat some freshly popped popcorn from one of those theater-type kettle machines things. But good times go by fast, and so I headed home

The birthday boy and his newly acquired weapon of no destruction

Clue! Who's taking the picture? It is the birthday boy? On his birthday? excluded from the game?

Strider and I. Or, at least I think that's Strider. Can't see without my glasses....where are they?
