Leftover turkey

I hope every one's Thanksgiving was festive. Here's all that's left of our turkeys. We've enjoyed leftover turkey, dressing, potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce and pie, but it's finally all gone. So today we had chili for lunch. What a yummy cold weather meal that is. The actual day was wild as usual. I think we had about 26 people, I'm not really sure. Seems like some we invited didn't show up, and others we didn't invite did show up, so it's really hard to figure. And every time I tried to count, I got interrupted, so who knows. And more teenagers showed up after dinner; I remember seeing 7 or 8 of them up in the loft of the cottage eating pie. All in all, I consider it a successful holiday if the food is reasonably hot by the time I get mine and there are enough chairs for everyone to sit down.

Sounds like it was a good day after all. Mine was very quiet compared to yours and even that exhausted me.

I think your new Christmas tradition is nothing short of GENIUS!

What a great day!

We had our first family fight scheduled at 12:15, but it never even came to that :)

Happy belated Thanksgiving!
