Friendsgiving. 2011.

Last night was our second-annual "Friendsgiving"! It was a success, and a lot of fun! I am so thankful for all our friends, and this was the perfect occasion to celebrate! Who doesn't love: Friends, Turkey and Games?!
Sten and Peter were the "co-co-hosts" as well as the mixologists. They came up with our signature cocktail: the Berry Thankful and I think it was a hit! I sure liked it!
Signature Drink: Berry Thankful

Vodka, fizz, Lingonberry concentrate, lemon, and garnish
Find your spot and eat your turkey
Almost all ready!
These turkey's are a Print family must-have at Thanksgiving time. Open up an Oreo, stick a chocolate covered cherry on and garnish with candy corn for the feathers and the beak. 
Festive.
 Elsa came to help set up and get everything ready. She's the best.
Ready for friends to arrive!
 Have you ever cooked your turkey in a bag? It's easy, and makes the turkey sooo moist and delicious!
23 lb. Turkey in a bag.
Kate did all this on her own. Homemade stuffing even! 
Just right at 4 hours in the ov.
This is where you will typically find us.

Sten is GREAT at carving turkey's! He is a natural.
