Another birthday

Kristen is 25!!  Doesn't that sound soooo old!?
Emmi wanted to make brownie/clown cones for Kristen.
Emmi baked the brownies (shown underneath the ice cream), 
and bought supplies with her own money.  A couple of clowns looked pretty good.
Then there's always one in the group......
that can't follow directions, and just dumps tons of junk on their creation.
We had our Thanksgiving early, since DH has to work.  No big kids were able to make it.
We ate (and are still eating) the most amazing locally grown 16lb turkey EVER!!
We have discovered the secret combination----brine at least 12 hours, cook breast down, low and slow, overnight at 170 degrees--
-you're welcome.
Of course there had to be drama---the sink stopped up.
Turns out it wasn't just the sink, but the pipe that takes our gray water out to one of the ponds.
Although DH and Wes spent hours working, and under the house investigating, I'm thankful this happened before DH's next stretch of work days.
