Thanksgiving Day at my house

OK! It's well over a week since Thanksgiving Day, and the leftovers just a memory, but I've just not been in the mood to write I guess. I know some of you are waiting to see pictures of the family, so here they are:

Lisa and Matt had dinner at Matt's grandparent's house, but they stopped by to visit after dinner. I guess I forgot to take a picture of them!

Dinner was good, (Of Course!) and I think everyone had a good time. Dad stayed until the end, and said he was tired, but it was a 'good tired'.

My dishwasher decided to die, so I did the legions of dishes by hand. I bought a new one over the weekend, and Jeremy was a good son and picked it up and installed it for me. WOW! It really works well!

The evening before Thanksgiving, Jeremy, Soren and I went to Terry's brother Paul's house to visit. Every Thanksgiving Paul makes 30-40 pumpkin pies and collects donations of food from anyone who want to participate. On Thanksgiving, they take the pies and food into Minneapolis to a charity to share for Thanksgiving dinner for the homeless and underpriviledged. Paul has done this for many years. He is a kind and generous guy. I'm proud to have him for a brother-in-law.

I hope you all had a good holiday too.
