Bowers' Thanksgiving Weekend

Now that I am getting caught up with things that I needed to finish up (except laundry) I can fill you in to our wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.

It started off with Danny's Mom and her husband Bob coming over Wednesday night. The drove on the parking lot (AKA I-5) making decent time for the night before Thanksgiving. Thursday morning we had nothing to special for breakfast and Danny went to football practice. So Bob helped me with the turkey (he is an excellent cook). Got everything ready so it was time to put my feet up and we watched some football games and rested until dinner was ready. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner and topped it off with a homemade apple pie (crust and all...Michele)

Powdered doughnuts...

This is the only picture of the dinner at Thanksgiving... the cream cheese is for Danny - I love you!

Friday was a relaxing day as well. Pomie (Danny's mom) and I decided to brave the crowds and go shopping for the boys. We got to Toys R Us around 10:30am and the store was not that bad. We did really good that day hitting Target and Khols as well. My shopping is pretty much done with a few exceptions.... Then we all packed in to my car and headed up to Fresno for the championship game. We went into half time down 28-6 and came out wanting to win in the second half. Took it into over time and won!!!

What an amazing feeling that was - too cool!

Saturday of course was more football and relaxing. We got a few things done around the house and then Bob made prime rib for dinner - yummy, have I mentioned I like good cooking!!!

Sunday was a special day for Danny. Back in August Danny passed his oral test for ordination and we celebrated and recognized it on Sunday. Danny preached the first service and was amazing (I am his toughest critic) but he did really good. Then my parents came for the ordination service and I got to hear my daddy preach again (it has been years since I have heard my dad). He did a great job as well. Then we all as a family went out for lunch. It was a nice time. Since my apple pie was such a hit I made another one for dinner that night as well.

Monday we went to Disneyland. I love Disneyland period but I think I love it more when it is decorated for the holidays. Wow - if you have a chance to go I say go it is amazing. Of course I took my camera and we had lots of fun. I think other than pictures my favorite part was the parade and the fireworks and snow. Yes it snowed at Disneyland!!! okay so it wasn't real but it sure felt real. I left feeling like I just spent a part of Christmas with my family.

Tuesday Bob and Pomie had to go home, but we made one important stop at In N Out. If you have never been to one you have no idea what you are missing (Sarah). It was a fun time, and good food again.

I love the animal fries

So there it is a wonderful time spent with family that will never be forgotten.
So how was your Thanksgiving? I would love to hear all about it.
