My giving of Thanks recap in as few words as I can manage; and hey the PoLiCe were NOT in attendance.

So, I made three centerpieces knowing I'd need two, plus one for the kitchen. 
 By Tuesday our guest list grew from 10 to 15, we were going to have three tables of people now.
We were able to continue our Thanksgiving eve tradition of roulette. Just like the pilgrims! 
 The day of Thanksgiving our guest list had grown to 18. Luckily I have a lot of plates. And silverware. And wine. 
The pool sharks girls.

I swear to goodness that I'd told my girls a few nights before: 
"You don't know how lucky you are to have holidays WITHOUT law enforcement getting involved."
Linds: "Hey, can we SHAKE it up this year?"
We giggled....my children have noooooo idea. 

And FYI....all was well and peaceful. The Po-Po did not visit us this Thanksgiving.
Let's see what happens next year. 

The bird with the girls. BTW: I was able to locate my organic/free range bird who'd spent his life doing yoga and having daily massages. AND HE WAS DELICIOUS!
Even with extra peeps we had mucho leftovers. 
Apparently we were only expecting some, but cooked for many.

Our holiday was FaBuLous....a few loved family members were missing this year and that is never fun; but we made due with total strangers sitting at the table. 


I've a crazy week ahead....wish me luck!!!

I hope your Thanksgiving was lovely AND you also missed out on the Po-Po visiting your home!

Looks like lots of fun at your house. How were the police not there? They were here, and I'm sure we didn't have that much fun, although I can't really remember. Oh. yeah. a policeman lives here. That explains a lot.....

A bird who has lived his life in total zen is THE WAY to go!
