Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving


and all through our house, everyone was stirring (Ubi played with her mouse).

Well, all of our family has arrived and we have a houseful! We have my mom, Sean’s mom, Sean’s brothers Tane’, Julian, Crispin, Nat and his girlfriend Lily, Sean’s sister Celestine, Tane’s mom, her husband Guy and Tane’s sister Cornelia.

Barbara and Julian arrived last Wednesday and the last of everyone came in at 6:30 Wednesday evening. People were from everywhere, New Zealand, England, California, Virginia and Florida. All came to our house in Indiana.

We ordered pizzas when everyone got in and then the games began. We had a 4 way game of Call of Duty 4 going on in the living room where people were happily killing each other. And all the budding Guitar Heros were rocking out in the den.

We went to bed about 11:30 along with mom, barbara, Jane and Guy, Nat and Lily. The rest stayed up who knows how long, playing video games. Then they crashed in the den where we had a dorm set up with 3 queen beds and a single (us older folk had the bedrooms).

Tomorrow my niece Danielle is also coming for Thanksgiving dinner, and maybe my sister Jill and husband Dan. If they can’t make it for Thanksgiving, they’ll be here Friday. Here are some pictures from the fun!

Here are the rest of our Thanksgiving pictures that will be updated throughout the weekend.

Happy Thanksgiving!
