mmm Turkey!!!

On Friday night we were treated to a very American traditional dinner. Turkey with all the trimmings (oh except for sweet potatoes that is). Will you look at the size of that bird! Becky cooked it and apparently it took her all day to do so. She really did a awesome job - it was absolutely mouthwatering. We ate at the Rulla's and everyone contributed to the very yummy dinner. As you can see I tried to make a political statement by bringing Pavlova complete with Kiwifruit however it didn't stand a chance with Kelly making an outstanding pumpkin pie. We had to roll home afterwards and now I can understand those references made in American movies to Thanksgiving dinners where the menfolk unbutton their pants to fit more in. We really are giving up so much to live here aren't we?
