Utah Thanksgiving!(Sweet Potato Casserole with Pecan Topping)

Catching up with 2012 before we get too far into 2013

After getting back from Utah on the 13th...I flew back on the 17th with Kendra and kids...we had a great week with family....here are Kody and Parker with Everett on his blessing day (Nov 18,2012)

While in Utah, Parker got his hair cut...at the only place he trusts....looks pretty fun, but it could be a long time between haircuts if you have to got to Utah for one!

Wrestling with Uncle Karl....those are a lot of boys to take on at once...good job, Karl!

Brady's story of Carson's sleepwalking/night peeing adventure...

Grandma time with Audrey...while everyone else went sledding...loved it.

Cutest little "turkey" girl...

The main event...low key but yummy! Good rolls, Kendra....Here's the ...

Sweet Potato Casserole:
4-6 sweet potatoes, cooked and peeled
2 T butter
1/4 C cream (or milk or almond milk)
1/4 C orange juice
1 t vanilla

3/4 T nutmeg
3/4 t cinnamon

Pecan Topping
