Thanksgiving recap

We had a really great time at my brother and sister-in-laws.  Good food and good company.  I hadn't seen my sister-in-laws family for years.  It was good to catch up with them.  I was so stuffed.  I ate more than usual (not good for my weight).  I think it had a lot to do with the fact that we didn't have to cook it, just eat it.  They didn't want us to bring anything but my neighbor behind gave us a pumpkin roll.  We left some here but took the majority of it there.  My brother took mom's dining room set so we were able to use that to eat at.  Also, the buffet.  Mom never really used it to put food on so it looked nice.  I wouldn't mind going there again next year ;0)  We got some leftover turkey which we will probably have tonight. 

We went to see Mom for a little bit yesterday morning before we went to my brother's.  Everyone was in the day room watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade.  I asked her today did she have a good Thanksgiving meal.  She said they had turkey, ham, sweet potatoes, corn, beets and pumpkin pie.  I'm pretty sure she was talking about lunch and supper but she said it was all good.

Sounds like you had a lovely Thanksgiving :o) My baby is planning on leaving the country next summer and teaching english in Central/South America, so I really related to you missing your son this year (in anticipation - not really anticipation - but just wondering what life will be like without him around daily).
