We're busting at the seams.
Our friends, Tom and Lynda and their six kids joined us for Thanksgiving dinner.
We had kids everywhere.
They were sitting at the table, in the living room...I think a few even ate their dinner sitting in the middle of the laundry room floor.
We had a ball.
It was great to have an opportunity to get together and just chat. Lynda and I don't get to do that too often...so while we were making stuffing, finding lost tippy cups and trying to figure how many place settings we needed, we talked girl stuff.
It was great.
And I am proud to say I made my first, official turkey...all by myself.
Well...except for the part where I made Meshack wash the thing out.
And it turned out great, except for the plastic bag full of gizzards I accidentally left inside.
It gave everyone a pretty big chuckle at my expense. (I pulled one bag out of the bird...who knew they could stuff it full of so much junk! ;>)
Their crew has since left...on their way to the next stop.
My crew has since gone to bed...stuffed full of turkey, pink jello and wonderful memories.
It's time to go to bed myself.
