I am interrupting my "Meet The Authors" posts to share some Thanksgiving moments.  My son-in-law, Adam, took over the kitchen, which is a good thing!  Yesterday he made a brine and soaked the turkey overnight with all kinds of seasoning.  This morning it went into the Nesco roaster.   His next treat was making a sausage stuffing that was so good!  Wonderful aromas wafted through the house!
The kids couldn't wait until Aunt Becky and Uncle Barry arrived
Becky made a family favorite and tradition - Butternut Cake.  This cake is made with a special vanilla and is to die for!  It is a rich, dense cake that needs no icing.  Man, is it good! Because the boys can't eat the cake, we made yummy gluten-free chocolate chip cookies yesterday.  They ate the cookies with an awesome ricotta cappucino mousse that Annisa made.  Wow!  That mousse is definitely a new family favorite!
After turkey and all the trimmings, it was time to play some games!  Jen led the kids in a rousing game of "You Gotta Be Kidding!"  I love hearing the kids laugh.  It is such a silly game and they had so much fun playing it!
Little Robert Dixon is such a pleasant little boy.  He is just fascinated by his great-grandmother!  I believe he stole her heart!
 Robert Dixon and his sister, Sasha, share a very special bond.  He's quite the snuggler!
We wish your family a blessed Thanksgiving!  We are so thankful for living in the United States of America, for our brave military men and women, our friends, and family.
