The doggie cousins did not have the same issues. They made themselves right at home on Nana's couch with Grandpa Jim. That cute little thing in the middle of Trudy and Sophie is Grizzly Keagy. He's the proud owner of David and Christine.
And this is Haven demonstrating her newest skill...standing without holding on to anything. While reading a book. I happen to believe that this could be a better skill than learning how to talk. I can read a book and do anything at the same time. Anything.
So, those are the images that I captured, but the ones I didn't were just as good. We spent Thanksgiving day with my family in Amarillo and ate dinner at The Big Texan. If you've never heard of The Big Texan, well, it's a big tourist trap restaurant and motel. There are billboards all over the United States about a free 72 ounce steak if you eat it (and all the sides) in an hour. We did not attempt the steak, however, after we'd finished eating, it felt similar to eating a 72 ounce hunk of beef. The food was surprisingly good. The restaurant was decorated for Christmas and they had a band. And, no-one had to do dishes. Lovely.
Haven had her share of mashed potatoes and stuffing, but by far her favorite food of the weekend was Dyer's BBQ in Pampa. Can't say I blame her. She loves rib bones. And apricot sauce. And Texas toast. Yum. Yum. Yum.
It would appear as though the majority of my blog posts are about food. But, honestly, I can't think of a better way to reminisce about the weekend then to review all that I ate.
