Prepping A Couple Turkeys

Alright team, we’re hosting Thanksgiving in Chicago for the first time ever. Emily’s parents are staying with us and my mom will also be in town. Everyone arrives tomorrow so we need to be totally prepared by the end of the day.

Kitchen prep work: check!

Clean house: check!

Bathed, teeth brushed: check!

Testing comfiness of the guest bed: check!

Hey, wait a minute. You guys aren’t allowed up there…

Not even with those eyes. Dogs off the bed: check!

As hosts, Eko provides the class while Penny provides the humor

The checklist is complete. Can’t wait to welcome family to our home for the holiday. Our two turkeys are prepped and ready to go.

There’s only one thing we can’t prepare for…

The terror of walking past this inflatable

Guess we’ll just have to walk the other way until Christmas decorations go up.

    Sounds like you all have some busy days coming up. Penny, don’t worry, Bailie got the same head gear this year…to be modeled on Thursday. I will be making the turkey this year as the family is coming to our place, but no overnight guests.

  3. Victoria says:

    Wow you guys are definitely ready – can’t wait for the Thanksgiving video of them helping host all of the family!

    The final photo made me laugh out loud in class (got some weird looks 😉 )! Poor Eko and Penny!

    Sounds like you’re good-to-go for Thanksgiving. The inflatable is UNACCEPTABLE! Unleash Penny on it and let’s finish it off.

    Love and licks,
    Cupcake

  11. HAVE A WONDERFUL FAMILY THANKSGIVING!!!!! Your twin turkeys look ready……and frankly inflatables freak me out too!

    Hugs, Pam and Sam

  12. Oh I can’t wait to hear how it all goes!!!! Our entire family is going to Chicago! (not us though), husband’s daughter had surgery today, so we couldn’t go….my cousin is a lawyer in Chicago and she is having the whole family. Will have to find out how close she lives to you (they live right by the city)….I bet your meal will be wonderful!!! Enjoy!

  13. DZ Dogs says:

  14. Oh poor Eko does look quite concerned about that abnormally large turkey inflatable! 😉

  15. Where’s a dart gun when you need it?
