The guest list kept growing and then dropping so it took a while to figure out the table layout but we finally got it:
Phat girl's before Dinner outfit - how cute is she?
The dessert table which just kept growing - those are two pecan/apple pies (sooo yummy) and the best vanilla cupcakes ever, now add two pumpkin pies, a chocolate cake, vanilla ice cream and whip cream and you have our desserts! LOL.
The beautiful flower arrangement g-ma made. Tira LOVED it. The first time she saw it she said "Ohhhhh" and kept signing for me to put it in her hands LOL. I swear she's a mini-martha stewart. She loves to watch us cook, she loves to clean, and apparently she loves flowers and flower arrangements.
Everyone seated - starting at the far end and going clockwise is Papa holding Lanna, then Tira, then Steve, Kristina, and Annie with Tai, next came Trudy with Husband Walter and daughter Julie, next came Gordan with daughter Summer and wife Tiffany, then finally peaking her head out is gma (I was of course taking the pictures).
The turkey. We got it from Bourbon Street - a Cajun restaurant. It was a deep fried turkey, unfortunately since we didn't eat it right out of the deep fryer the skin was soggy and not crispy greasy goodness. :-( The meat was nice a juicy though.
Lanna snuggling up to Julie, who apparently was super comfy LOL.
With all the excitement of so many people in the house Tira didn't last very long in her booster seat and didn't eat very much. Only 10 minutes into the dinner and she was fighting to get down. Since it was a holiday I obliged and set her free. A few minutes later I realized that I hadn't heard a peep from her and got suspicious (as anyone with young kids knows no noise is NEVER a good thing unless they're sleeping LOL). I turned around to find the little sneak standing next to the dessert table, sticking her finger into the chocolate cake and licking off frosting!
