We're 2/3rds of the way through painting. Once we're completely done I'll post pictures
Colby on one of our many trips to Lowe's:: Sahuarita Lake: We finally took a walk around the man-made lake (bodies of water don't seem to occur naturally around here) that marks the center of the community. They're in the process of of draining it right now, but it still makes me happy.
:: Canadian Thanksgiving:
Usually we celebrate this with my mom's side of the family, but since there's the issue of distance, we invited our friends, the Caltons, over and partied it up with them. Robb and I made a detailed plan of attack:
1:00 - Prep turkey Robb
1:00 - Prep bread pudding Lakin
1:45 - Put turkey in oven Robb
1:45 - Start slow cooker for bread pudding Lakin
1:45 - Start cranberry sauce prep Either
2:00 - Put cranberry sauce in oven Either
3:30 - Start stuffing prep Person 1
3:45 - Start mashed potatoes prep Person 2
4:10 - Put stuffing in oven Person 1
4:45 - Start gravy Lakin
4:45 - Prep veggies Robb
5:00 - Carve turkey Robb
And for our 2nd solo Thanksgiving dinner, I was pretty pleased with how everything turned out. I was also exhausted and hence forgot to take any pictures until the next day (mmm, leftovers).
The next day we went to our ward's Trunk or Treat and I managed to throw a costume on this time (I'm a mummy). I was kind of relieved the next day when everything was over and we could throw the remains of our decomposing pumpkins away.
:: On a happier note: I love Arizona skies
