Thanksgiving 2009

Take 2 was a success!
For the second year, I wanted to host Thanksgiving at our house. Many of you have done this yourself, and know that it can be quite a daunting task. Cleaning the week before, making sure you have enough serving dishes, let alone plates and silverware! But I would not be scared away...
As of the Wednesday before bird day, we were tentatively expecting 23 people...YIKES! Did I have enough food? Chairs? Wine? (Wine more for me than anyone else, hehehe) But, by this late in the game, I was going for it with what I had.
The conclusion? Went off without a hitch! Food was great! We had leftovers, but weren't overwhelmed with them. Everyone got to take a bit home, too. We had tons of family sharing in the wonderful day. We played games, visited, and stuffed ourselves into blissful relaxation.
