Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving

     We had a great meal Thanksgiving.  My daughter in law outdid herself.  She is a wonderful cook.
                     Brian fried the turkey and it was very good.  Would definately eat that again. (that's me sneaking a bite of ham with brown sugar glaze. mmmm)
The star of the day though was the dressing.  OMG, it was wonderful.  I could have eaten the whole pan.
Let me back up and show you some pictures of us watching Brian cook the turkey.
                                                       Then there was the pillow fights.
                              Someone couldn't get off their game long enough to talk to everyone.

Who me?
The dogs were lined up for their loving.
 Lori was happy that most of the cooking was done and she got to sit down and rest a minute.
Logan was looking for something.  Don't remember what, but he was looking.
Last year we were waiting on a blizzard, this year we were sitting outside enjoying the unseasonably warm weather.  It was a wonderful day.  I just wish that Mike and his family could have been here to enjoy it with us.

It's chili cook off time and Happy Halloween!

Here at Katy lake they had a Halloween chili cook off.  I decided to make some chili and enter it.  We have some really good cooks here and I didn't think I had a chance at any of the prizes.
 We gathered at the clubhouse and first on the agenda was the doggy parade.  They were so cute in their costumes.
                                                         There was little Lobster Man!
                                       Being a little shy, is Wonder Woman, Scarlett.
Our little ballarina turned her head right when I took her picture.

               Here they all are lined up for their walk to the club house.  Aren't they cute.

                                         Here was the Peoples Choice Award winner, JoJo!
                                               Next on the agenda was the chili cook off.
                     The pots were lined up and samples of all the chili were given out.
                                          After sampling, everyone voted for their favorite.
First place went to Mary King.  I should have known because I smell her cooking everyday and let me tell you it smells  wonderful.  2nd place went to Carla Heer. and Guess who won 3rd.  yep me!

 Then it was time for everyone to get a big bowl of their favorite chili and chow down.
 It was a beautiful day to be outside and I think everyone had lots of fun and enjoyed the food.

Happy Halloween everyone!
