Thanksgiving 2009

We went to Payson for Thanksgiving. John's family, both from California and here, joined us...for a grand total of 16 people. I did my usual...pumpkin, mincemeat and pumpkin pecan pie. I also made Reba McIntire's Sweet Potato Casserole. The food and company were great!! Will actually came home-kind of-he was dogsitting for the weekend, so we saw him off and on. He did spend Saturday night here, as we had Von's farewell at 1:30 on Sunday. Since it is COLD here today, I am making chili for dinner, and he is staying, as it is one of his favorite dinners.

I am going to try to download some of the pictures....The dining room table....we also set the kitchen table for 8....

Loading up the plates...Cindy, Warren, Chase and Billy

I have no idea what she was doing!!! But we all had a great time!!! Thanks for coming Dow's, Howe's and Landino's.....

A New "Skill"

The NASCAR post is pretty lame!!! I just figured out how to add pictures...Hopefully the Thanksgiving one will be better!!! Sorry hardcore bloggers!!!

Gentlemen...Start your Engines






We went to the NASCAR race at PIR a few weekends ago. It was SOOOO fun that we cannot wait to go again. Here are some pics from our fun in the garages and pits-thanks to John!!!
This was our home away from home. Snuggles went with us...Night 1 was not relaxing for any of us. Benedryl became our best friend!!
Haven't you always wondered how the lug nuts got put on so quick, in the pits??? They are hooked on with a rubber cement type material. I got two off of off the Holiday Inn car in the Nationwide race.
