Canaan’s Turkey Day Highlights

Monday, November 26th, 2012

As usual, Bebe played the role of hostess with the mostest this year.  We rolled in on Wednesday afternoon, with just enough time to make sure the chocolate pecan pie was good enough to serve during the Thanksgiving festivities the next day.  From family to food, good times were certainly had by all.  Canaan had [...]

We stopped at Grammy and Paw Paw’s house on the way back Sunday [...]
