Thanksgiving in SF - Thursday

 On Thanksgiving Day, we went to Steve's and just hung out!  We did puzzles, made bracelets, and all sorts of holiday fun!
 We hit the park early!  This is a park that is very close to Steve's place.  We walked over there and had a blast.  The other kids and parents were awesome.

 A really fun part of this park was the hill.  Macky rolled down the hill a bunch of times.  It was great.
 Here is Steve's first turkey.  It was 18 pounds!!  He soaked it in a brine and cooked it breast side down for the first half, then flipped the turkey for the final half of the time.
 Kayla had an awesome spread of snacks!!  They had enough food to feed an army!!
 Once everything was cooking, we did our traditional ginger bread houses.  This time we did mini houses.  That was not a good idea.  It was way more of the hard part (getting the walls to stand up and together) and less of the fun part (decorating).  Now I know.  At first everyone was involved.
 By the end, it was pretty much Kayla...  What a sport!
 When we arrived in SF, my brother had this weird beard.  There was some competition at his work or something.  As Thanksgiving Day progressed, more and more of his facial hair was shaved off.  This is my least favorite stage - the mustache.
 How many people does it take to make gravy?  Apparently, 3.
Beautiful turkey.  Stephen and Kayla did an amazing job!  You wouldn't know it was their first time.  They had so much great food for us and all sorts of fun things to do!  Don't I have the best family!?!
