10th Anniversary Today

Saturday, November 26th, 2011

It was a great decision. Our celebration today? Cleaning up the house after three days of Thanksgiving parties and guests. Then home with the kids for a video movie. And we’re perfectly fine with that.

In the fine evening tradition, we had good fun reading stories to kids over Thanksgiving. Gabi made a short video, which I’ll likely post one of these days.

Why, here it is now!

Thanksgiving Dinner was excellent! Thanks to everyone who came. On the serving cart, we had the following: (Top shelf) Hungarian cabbage in the blue bowl, turkey (one plate dark meat, one plate white meat), Gabi’s fruit stuffing from inside the bird, rolls and Gabi’s stuffing from outside the bird. (Middle shelf) Dan’s cornbread stuffing, Hungarian mayo salad, spiced squash (!!). (Bottom shelf) sweet potatoes and mashed potatoes.

Not shown are the homemade cranberry sauce, gravy, apple pie, Lintz cookies, coconut pastries, Charlotte cake (these two courtesy Anikó), beer/wine/gin courtesy of Chris and Dan and lots of other stuff as well.

It was a great time!

8:30am. This was the first check of our 24 pound bird – two and a half hours after it started cooking. Looks good, doesn’t it?

Thanksgiving Approaching

Monday, November 23rd, 2009

This is the last post on Thanksgiving until after the festivities. We’re just too busy getting things together here. We’ll have photos of everyone and all of the fun once the guests have left.

For those people coming, remember to check out the posts here: schedule, food, drinks/desserts and guest list. Thanks to Chris for promising to bring drinks to the gathering. Thanks to Anik√≥ for all of the baking she’s doing. And to our neighbors Gilbert and Karen for providing extra tables and chairs to fit everyone.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!
