The final stretch:
Kyle had to head back to Milwaukee the next morning, and he probably won't be able to get home for Thanksgiving (sniff), so we decided to make the most of it. My mom was out of town, but we picked Grandma 4444 up and had a wonderful dinner together. It was so much fun, because Kyle volunteered to make his growing-famous Butternut Squash Soup, and Kendall offered to make our favorite side, Berry Mallow Bake, so at one point, four of us were in the kitchen cooking together! (Grandma 4444 learned how to record a Vine!)
Here's Steve just hoping for a nibble (note the drool)...
I fell off the clean-eating bandwagon that night,
but the landing was soooo sweet!
