I haven't done a lot of post-Thanksgiving cooking, but I did want to show off the tightness of my family's leftover game. I probably should have already mentioned how super crazy good my dad's smoked turkey was, but I was still in a little bit of a brickle haze at the time. Check out the smoked turkey action in these fresh-egg migas, though:

Hey, Christmas is coming! Who's ready?
Pretty much ready, right?
No worries, I know what will get us in the spirit of things. Christmas crafts! How about an advent calendar? Looks pretty cute and easy! I'll just let the four-year-old do it!

Okay, I am going to set aside my grumpiness re: maybe some things should just be left in the recycling bin where they belong in order to present the impressive one-woman show that occurred when I asked Anna to please pose in front of the Christmas tree. Please note her signature "I'm four / thumbs up / finger guns" finale.
Anyway, yeah, you should probably get on my Christmas card list.
