You know that everyone is having a great time when we all forget to take a picture to capture the memory. A great time was had and no pictures were taken…sigh! Fortunately, our son, David Paul, and his wife, Allison, had the foresight to take and send a picture of their new daughter, Molly. Thus, it is their picture of her that I have posted to this blog!
Mary Margaret and I, along with Michael’s parents, Peggy and Jim, and Michael’s younger brother, Mark, all joined Christina, Michael, Isaac, Stella and Wyatt at their house today to share and celebrate Thanksgiving. Everyone pitched in and made various tasty dishes which included a 20-pound turkey, baked to golden perfection, two types of sausage stuffing, cranberries, whipped garlic potatoes, sweet potatoes, pomegranate salad, corn, home made bread, a platter of raw veggies, all followed up with cranberry pecan pie, pumpkin pie, and vanilla ice cream. And if that wasn’t enough, we preceded that feast with three types of chips, dips and salsa, humus and veggies, turkey and chicken gizzards cooked in butter and Worchester sauce. Needless to say, with mounds of dirty pots and pans and dishes stacked to a teetering height, we all agreed that we were stuffed!
Of course, to make the holiday complete, football games on the TV played throughout the day and after dinner, the decks of cards were brought out and we all played a roaring game of 3-13. Only modesty on my part prevents me from announcing who won! Whoo Hoo!
All in all, it was a pretty traditional Leu/Boyless family Thanksgiving. Great food, great fun, and most importantly, great family. We are so thankful for our family, health and being able to share in the bounty.
We hope you and yours had an equally wonderful Thanksgiving.
