The ever beautiful Amber and sweet Grace who is just 2 months older than Sara. Haylee and her leftovers.
Kate and Sara enjoying their dinner, we ordered them fish to share but they ended up eating my pasta!! Kate as always was so well behaved, we can take her anywhere and Sara surprised us both by being a little angel herself and sat through the entire meal.
Jon & Gina, always a fun time with them around. Chris, Ethan and Haylee, Kate's beloved cousins, she loves them lots and lots.
Great company. Sara relaxing after her meal.
The kids loved the birds that hang around outside afterwards but we did narrowly miss getting pooped on a few times!!
Game on - Setters!! Eric loves playing with Chris and Amber and its always a little more fun if you can add some extras so it was a bonus to have Jon and Gina play too. I had to come home and put Sara to bed, and blog.
I am pretty easy going about what we do and where we go for thanksgiving, after all is really isn't my holiday, I spent the first 21 years of my life entirely unaware of it existence but I have to say now I am in on the little celebration that all of you this side of the pond enjoy and call thanksgiving I like it. If I am honest I would say that to me its no more than Christmas dinner in November except the added bonus to thanksgiving is that no gifts are required, no one expects to receive one or give one and that takes the pressure off entirely, it is just family and/or friends getting together to enjoy one another's company. This year we stayed close to home and went to Gladstone's with Chris, Amber, Haylee, Ethan, Grace, Jon & Gina, I have been to Gladstones before and this time unfortunately was the same as last, the food was O.K. and I'm sure that I am just not ordering the right thing but left once again unimpressed. All that said, whatever was lacking in the tasty dinner department was made up for in the great company department it was so fun to hang out with family and friends.
