Fall Happenings

While the weather lately hasn't felt like fall (it was 72 degrees yesterday!), the leaves on the ground are a dead giveaway. And the turkey prep for Thanksgiving.

The kids were excited to help rake this year, so I bought them each a little rake and they "helped" Mike.

Check out some videos of the leaf-jumping fun:

We also bought a turkey a few weeks before Thanksgiving so that Mike could try out a new technique, spatchcocking. It was a hit--very juicy though the skin didn't get as crisp as Mike would like. Ben was allllll over helping prep the turkey (he loves big cats so he thought "prepping a tiger's dinner" would be fun--okie dokie...)

We also enjoyed the last of the nice weather with S'mores in the backyard in the firepit.

It's supposed to cool down soon to more normal November weather for these parts, but for now we are enjoying the warm days.
