We went over to Henry and Elaine's (Stella's sister and brother-in-law) house about noon and were the first to arrive, but it wasn't long until the place was full of kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews. The younger kids were attracted to the pool table, the guys hovered around the big screen television and the women gathered in the kitchen. It wasn't very long before the Thanksgiving feast was laid out and ready for us.
Of course, the meal was delicious, with plenty of veggie casseroles, ham and turkey for us. Several pies were also ready in case anyone had room left in their tummies. It was a great time with family.
Soon most of us were back in the living room but not as many were watching the Dallas Cowboys take a shellacking from the Philadelphia Eagles, mainly because we were taking the "required" nap after all that food.
We got in some nice visiting and catching up time before it was time to go. Ray, Kim and the boys had the longest drive and the rest of us had 12 miles or less. At least most will be together again at Christmas but sadly, we won't be among them. Maybe next year!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING Y'ALL!!
