I'm still full. I ate a wonderful dinner. A sensible dessert. Then I grazed as the evening progressed, and now, I'm still full.

I took a zillion pictures, and put some of them on this slideshow. Thanksgiving was held at the wonderful home of my cousins Kate and David. They just moved into this house last month. You'll see from the pictures that's it's a great place to host a big gathering. My family is so down to earth and funny and we love being together. Having a crowd this size is a group effort--everyone brings something. I'm the family carver, and carved 3 turkeys. They always order them from Omaha Steaks. They come to the door on dry ice, cleaned and ready to go in a cooking bag. They're the best turkeys I've ever had, and being the carver, I know them well! A great time was had by all, as I hope was the case with all of you.

This is a long slide show. Sorry...There's a white arrow on the right side. If you click it, you can go faster.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I plan to be at Kohl's when they open in the morning. At 4 AM. I'll tell you more tomorrow. Call me crazy, OK?

Cheryl what a fun filled day. Nice slideshow.

I am not shopping today. My ex says he's shopping right now. Too funny.

I feel another beach day again. So peaceful. Another ride after the gym.

Happy shopping!

Who is the girl with dark hair and braids? Cindy's daughter? I guess Carolyn wasn't there.

I must have missed your slide show this morning. It's a wonderful slide show! Everyone looks so relaxed and happy - not one sour puss - in the whole crowd. It is a lovely home and perfect for your gathering. The grand piano didn't escape my notice. Do you play? I really like the pictures of you carving. Beautiful! Thanks for sharing your Thanksgiving this way.
