The first look at the turkey. I thought I had set the turkey on fire earlier. I put the giant turkey (25.9 pounds) in the paper bags (it took two) and put it in the oven. I was doing other things when the smoke alarm went off. The house was filled with smoke, I opened the oven and more smoke poured out. I saw flame! But the turkey itself was fine. The grease from the bags dripped onto the hot plate bottom of my oven. The oven did not like it one little bit. I put a large tray under the turkey and wiped out the bottom of the oven with a wet towel on a stick. It turned out fine. I found out the fans work great, the new furnace fan cleared out the house in minutes. Later on tonight, after I finish the dishes I will run a clean cycle on the oven.
Miss Ashley! She called last night, finally letting me know she was here. She is working and saving money so she can go to college next year. It was really nice to see her! She was also super helpful, filling glasses, clearing the table!
Uncle Chong and Uncle Vasu.
Chong thinks my mother ROCKS. And she does.

Our little monkey. He did not want to wear his coat for awhile, eventually he put it back on. At the PeeWee Monster Bash they give you tickets for each event. That makes it fair, everyone gets a shot at each game and gets prizes for each game. The cookie from the cookie walk were really good! Lon gave me a nibble.
The baby gym room was all set up, and Lon loved it. He had lots of fun. The next stop we made was the cool down room. Lon finished his cookie, had some apple juice and watched Monsters, Inc. for a while. He was getting overwhelmed. Everyone was. There were lots and lots of kids. We saw lots of friends! (Ty, Alex, Jacky, Lon liked that)
After the Pee Wee Monster Bash we came home, relaxed a little. When Daddy came home, he took Lon up to the store and Mommy set up Giaganto Pumpkin. Lon was NOT pleased that Mommy did not wait for him to help. He was pleased when I let him put the candles and cinnamon into out carved pumpkin.
What our pumpkin looked like lit.
