We did our morning routine then left at 12:00 to spend Thanksgiving with Jim’s cousin Andy, and his wife Dee. They live about 20 miles out in the country. The weather was great at 82 degrees with a few clouds.
Our hosts for the day, Andy and Dee.
About 20 family members showed up, kids, grand kids, and in-laws. It was so nice meeting some for the first time, and getting re-acquainted with others. The food was really good and plentiful.
These are little turkeys made from Oreo cookies, malted milk balls, and candy corn. (Click on the pictures to enlarge).
Along with a roasted turkey, there were wild pig and deer hams smoked in a homemade smoker for 14 hours at 225 degrees.

When the meal was over they played a kick ball game, which is a family tradition. It’s the adults vs. the kids. It was so much fun watching them.
It was well after dark when we got back to the park, and in order to get to the campground we had to follow the traffic through the festival of lights. They charge $10 a car to go through, but we have a sticker so we don’t have to pay. Jim took a couple of pictures of the Christmas lights.
