minus the jelly

jillian loved the pre-thanksgiving baking on wed.
then the fridge went out.
no milk, no cheese, no joy.

we got our fill this past weekend of
peanut butter minus the jelly (remember, no fridge) sandwiches.
monday afternoon brought the repairman.
i never knew how thankful i was for a refrigerator
until Thanksgiving weekend 2008.
the holiday continued with or without cold food.
jeff got muddy at the turkey bowl as JR stomped DH.

i am also grateful this year for extended family that live in AZ.
i was feeling rather homesick after talking to
mom and dad and hearing my brothers, and their wives
and children in the background.
dinner one was spent with my cousins and grandparents pete.
dinner two with the taylors.
family is truly what's important.
(this is ethan and abby schank.
jill's first cousins once removed. . . i think.
can you believe how tall she is!? she's only 8.)

I love peanut butter sandwiches...no jelly. I think Abby and Eliza are definitely related!

I'm so sorry our house was so locked up or you totally could have used our fridge!

No milk, no cheese, no joy. That's hysterical!

bummer about the fridge. next time you'll have to try some honey, or banana (elvis presley's fave).

Happy thanksgiving.

morgan pointed out that she has Jill's exact same dress. super cute.

I'm sorry about the refrigerator. It sounds like things worked out. I love that JR stomped DH. Brian was unable to go unfortunately, but we heard all about it. I love the pictures!
