We celebrated Grand daughter No. 1 Lily’s birthday last night and just to make sure we did everything in one fell swoop celebrated Thanksgiving also.  Brady and Shea have tickets to the Ravens-49ers game on Thanksgiving night.  Since they wanted to get to Baltimore as early as they could on game day and tailgate, Pam suggested that we re-schedule Thanksgiving dinner to a week early.  

Lily Mixing Ham StuffingTuesday Night

Of course we had to stuff a ham earlier in the week and Lily was more than willing to help out.  The paradox of kids helping is that when they are young and want to help you they really can’t, but when they are older and could help you out, they don’t want to do so.  

Anyway, ham was stuffed, turkey was cooked and consumed and we all gave thanks for another year.  Afterwards, we had some of Lily’s birthday cake which she did not help make, but came out good just the same.  Happy Birthday Lily.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
