Happy Thanksgiving! (A day late)

I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I have a terrific time with my future in-laws. (o:  We had a delicious meal as always.  I love spending time with his family.  I spoke with my family on the phone, and they had a nice holiday as well.  We are especially grateful that my Uncle Terry is alive.  On Wednesday night he fell 25 feet from a tree stand and broke his tailbone, pelvis, two discs in his back, and some ribs.  He also had a broken wrist.  He is in the hospital, but thankfully he has feeling in both legs.  Please keep him in your prayers.

Yesterday, Chris and I decided to take Ashe and Zack outside on leashes.  Needless to say, they did not love it.  I think there were too many new smells and sounds.  We will try it again.

Below are pics of our delicious dinner and dessert.  Chris's sister, Jessica, makes the most amazing Caesar salad in the world!  I do not care for Caesar salads in restaurants, but I could easily eat Jessica's salad for every meal of the day.  It is loaded with garlic, which I LOVE!  Her salad with homemade croutons is always a hit.  There are very rarely any left-overs.  Chris's dad fried two turkeys.  Fried turkeys are the best, because they are so moist and juicy!  Chris's mom made her famous stuffing along with sweet potato casserole.  We also had delicious green beans.  Chris's dad also make the most amazing eggplant Parmesan.  And Chris's grandmother brought over cold-boiled shrimp with cocktail sauce.  That is my favorite way to eat shrimp.  Sadly, it meant I could not make out with Chris for a while.  Boo.  But I do love shrimp.... LOL.  Oh and I made one of the pies that we had as dessert.  I made The Pioneer Woman's Pecan Pie That Will Make You Cry.  It was very easy to make, and I was told it tasted great.  It isn't my favorite flavor of pie, but I wanted to try something new and it also happened to be very simple. 
Cider I drank while making the pecan pie on Tuesday evening.
And the second cider I had... delicious nutmeg flavor

  Well now we are off to do some shopping.  I desperately need new running shoes, so I am hoping to get a gait analysis and some new shoes today.  I hope I find something great.  
Most comfortable swing ever.
Happy belated Thanksgiving to everyone!  I am thankful for you all!
