That right there is the best Thanksgiving photo. You can see Biscuit's proud face after she's taken a soup and salad order from my mom. She was so proud of her work and justifiably so. After two full days of cooking Thanksgiving dinner was a hit.
Ok, it wasn't the prettiest bird but it tasted alright.
The side dishes were delicious!
The pies were delicious too except the crusts which, honestly, were awful. Can't win 'em all!
That leaf rubbing table runner was our thing for "making something every day in November." Biscuit and I made it a few weeks ago with leaves we collected. It made for a colorful table! You can sort of see it under all the dishes.
So, in the end Biscuit learned to use the peeler, learned that it is a LOT of work to cook such a big meal and got paid her $4. Plus nearly everyone at the table tipped her so she probably made out with $10 or so. Not much of an hourly wage but pretty good for a six-year-old.
And Oscar practiced eating solids and added butternut squash to his menu along with applesauce and pumpkin. He's getting really good at solids. We're proud of him too ;)
What a wonderful Thanksgiving!
