Yesterday we had a little "Pre-Thanksgiving" dinner at our place. We were pretty excited to finally get to actually use our big dining room table for more than just the two of us. The funny thing was as we were putting in the extra leafs, Will laughs and says "This is how big our kitchen table was all of the time!" (10 kids in his family).
Dinner was soooooo good and everyone got completely stuffed. We had all the traditional trimmings...turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, homemade rolls, yams, cranberry salad, olives & pickles, fruit cocktail, pumpkin pie and apple pie....
After dinner, Erika, Briana and I entertained everyone with some music, but only after Will and Aaron took their turns at the piano. Will played for us "Birthday Party" from when he was taking piano lessons at 8 years old, and Aaron played a one-handed snippet from the Nutcracker. Wow, they were really hard acts to follow let me tell you.
Michael, Kate, Loretta, and Rolf
Katie - the best entertainment all night long
Ah and now we get to what people looked like after dinner - Briana and Mike
Loretta and Rolf
Aaron and triptophan taking effect
Okay, maybe not everyone got the after-dinner sleepies. Erika licking her pie plates, and Jayne....I don't know. LOL
