We had a really fun Thanksgiving Day yesterday, and I'm so grateful for my wonderful family and friends! There were 15 of us around the table. We had a delicious meal with foods everyone contributed. Everything was so yummy! ElvenTiger, Mo and my Mom made the table look beautiful, with place cards, flowers and fancy folds to the napkins.
After the first round of cleaning and then dessert, several of us went outside and played touch football, and then a bit of the other kind of football (aka soccer). It was a blast! My brother said he couldn't recall the last time he and I ran around outside and played together. I think it should be a new part of our Thanksgiving tradition!
Later, people chatted, knitted, enjoyed a game of Cosmic Wimpout, and played "Madden 08" football on the computer. We had a fun and mellow evening.
