Happy Day After

I hope all my American friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday, and all others had a nice Thursday with much to be thankful for on their non-holiday.

My younger son hosted 18 diners at his home yesterday. Bill and I, along with my sister-in-law and nieces provided the food. Some time today we will begin the process of bringing home the clean dishes, silverware, roaster and linens. We were all too pooped last night to deal with carrying anything other than ourselves out to the car.
It was nice having breathing room behind us as we sat down to eat. At my sister-in-law's or our house, at least a few diners are trapped in their chairs once seated. The 5 year old son of one of my nieces asked why we had Christmas dishes and tablecloths when it was Thanksgiving. Don't worry...he could still breathe after I pushed his face into the mashed potatoes.

We had much to be thankful for. Everyone is healthy, food was abundant and my daughter-in-law and grandson love and are loved by everyone.

Here is Colton wearing his turkey bib
And here he is proving he DOES have a bit of Grandma in his DNA....he was fascinated by my jewelry! He wouldn't leave my bracelets alone, preferring this shiny amethyst one to the plainer one that I wear 24/7 on my right wrist, and he discovered my rings yesterday. If my hands were palm up, he turned them over to examine (and try to taste) the stones.
Grandpa needs to take him to the jewelry store so he can pick out something he likes. I will gladly wear it for his entertainment. I am a good grandma that way. Photobucket
