Look who came to visit grandmummy and grandpappy for Thanksgiving!!
He brought his parents too.
Philip and Kara swung by Julia's college and picked her up, so we had those three for Thanksgiving. We had the big dinner at church with a table full of friends. It was a very jovial, delicious afternoon!
Beyond dinner with all the trimmings ... this was all the trimmings and then tons of extras!
Julia got to see old friends ~
And Philip deep-friend the turkey!!
The moistest turkey I've ever tasted -- there were no leftovers.
Don't believe the deceptive calm of this photo; Charlie and Trixie wrestled and played and wore each other out straight for four days.
Yes, he is just as adorable and downright beautiful as he seems.
I pestered everybody until at last we drove down for Philip and Kara to see the Vandemere Waterfront Park. Charlie chased his frisbee.
This park is quiet, hardly used, and immaculately designed. It's Pamlico County's best kept secret.
I'd better add a photo of Trixie for my mother, who wants to see more of the newest pup. Mother, she has "Cleopatra eyes" like Katie the Dog used to have. She's getting taller.At Philip's suggestion, Adam bought Trixie a set of bells. Charlie learned quickly to ring them when he needs to go outside.
Will Trixie learn that fast?
I've slowly kept illustrating my story about Punkin and the baby mouse. Here are a few more pages.
That's the end of the first half of the story. Wait till you see what happens next!
