Thanksgiving at Randy and Kelly's in Chugiak is always a warm and festive event. Aside from bringing green been casserole and pumpkin pie, we were tasked with bringing winter clothes. There would be a fire and the highs for the day were slated to be 9 degrees.
In what is becoming an annual tradition, we end up snapping the Turek family Christmas picture on Thanksgiving. The picture below was part of that effort, though it did not make the final cut. However, we do look very happy in the single digit temps. Hey, the sun is out and the roads are dry so there is little to complain about.
As for the final picture choice, keep an eye on your mailbox.
They key in taking the Henry show on the road is being dynamic and
flexible. We brought the pack and play along with the high chair and
arrived at noon where we promptly fed Henry to maintain his eating
schedule. Dinner was slated for 2:30 or so which put us in the sweet
spot for Henry's 2pm nap. Henry went down on time at 2:15 but thanks to
the new surroundings, he woke up right in the middle of dinner. Fair
enough. He didn't want to miss the big dinner. Full set of pictures are here.
Thanks to the remnants of an old dog house and a plethora of varnished
trim, the fire roared with warmth and crackling noises that effectively
killed the 3 degree temps for a comfortable 10 foot radius. Henry didn't
even develop rosy cheeks.
