Jason took the kids with him to volunteer at the Homeless Shelter this year, giving me ample time in the morning to get all ready for the big day. Especially since we were going to a friends house for dinner and I was only in charge of stuffing, rolls, and apple pie. Yum.
When they got home, Jason camped out in front of ESPN. GO LIONS!!! (sorry...I know they suck...but I CANNOT cheer Green Bay because I am a Bears fan...so its against my religion).
Around 3 we headed over to our friends, the Andersons. Our other friends, the Allens, also came...so it was a FULL HOUSE. Just the way we like it...lots of kids, lots of laughing, lots of FUN.
This is Angel Anderson whipping up a last minute chocolate pie, while the kids attack the appetizers. Don't bother, Angel...I brought apple. YUM, YUM, YUM!!!
(Have you guessed my favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner yet?)
The Allen girls!! Madeline, mom Laura, Lisle, Gwyneth, and Gretchen!!! They are SO MUCH FUN!!!
This is Chelsea Anderson and big brother Ron...chilling their bellies after insanely stuffing them with...well...STUFFING!!!
Ahhhh....and her is Casey Anderson and Kaitlyn...who talked clothes and boys most of the afternoon...and also share my weakness for apple pie. Aren't they beautiful?
After the Andersons, we headed to the Fabianos for dessert. I was so full...that my brain had stopped working and I forgot my camera in the car. Sorry.
But we had a great time chatting and laughing at great stories...I LOVE the Fabianos. They are some of my favorite people.
