THANKSGIVING - Valerie has cooked her first turkey...and both look beautiful
Look at the size of that thing...the bird probably weighs more than Valerie!
Charline poses with the bird...this will be her first Thanksgiving. We're so happy that she is able to join us!
Valerie's perfectly cooked bird is super juicy...brining works!
Butternut squash soup has been served. LET'S EAT!
Ham with Kosher salt gets a chuckle
Green bean casserole with French onions
Gotta have your veg
This Thanksgiving we host more of Valerie's side of the family than my own since Charline was able to join us
Round 1 (Whoops...forgot to grab some cornrbead before I snapped this pic)
DAY 1 - Our lunch destination changes to Venice after we decide not to wait in line at Tsujita LA
Charline and Thomas
Big Daddy's Poke Shack is decent, but far from the best...L.A. has a lot of good options now.
At least I'm not the only one taking food pics today
Mural painting in progress
Ahhhhh, Venice...not a place I frequent
Venice Skate Park
