Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

We had a great celebration this year.  Lots of friends came over for dinner and I even tried out a few new recipes.  We had pumpkin soup (thank goodness people were willing to take home leftovers—I made WAY too much).  I have to thank Mike and Sharon for loaning me the immersion blender.  What a fantastic invention!

As always, there was pie. This year, Cyrus came over early to learn how to bake them. He did a great job!  Though, people have been eating less and less pie every year.  I might only need to make one pie next year. I’m not sure how I feel about that…

And, as always, we played some games.  This year we played a new game—Quelf!  It was a hilarious game, but it’s pretty hard to explain. So, I’ll just share some pictures:

Yes, this is Cyrus. And yes, he is holding a toilet wand.  Like a said, the game is hilarious 🙂

Of course, we played Trivial Pursuit. Team Purple (my team) got all the pips before Team Blue (Anson’s team) got even one. Go us!


All in all, it was a very happy Thanksgiving. Thanks everyone for celebrating with us!
